Vidalia has such a great tradition across all sports and my hope is to continue this tradition during the upcoming Volleyball season,' Cameron added.
Vidalia Athletic Director Tommy Dalley said he is excited that VHS has found a coach who can continue the early success the program has seen. 'We are super excited to have Brooke on board with us. She brings a wealth of volleyball knowledge to a program that is still relatively new. We have had great early success in volleyball and look forward to watching Coach Brooke Cameron put her stamp on the program. She will be a tremendous asset to our athletic program and our student athletes.'
The Lady Indians, who made it to the 2020 AA Quarterfinals in just their second year of Varsity competition and finished the year ranked 5th in the state, will return seven members of the squad, including All-Area First Team member Lydia Poole along with Rachel Ellison, and Maggie Herrin, who were selected to the 2nd Team. 'I really enjoy building relationships with student athletes on and off the court, and hope to have just as much success in the classroom as we do on the court,' Cameron said. 'I am ready for a great season!'
