Another year and another state title for Grand Island Central Catholic

“It’s nice to have one more, I’m a little greedy maybe,” said head coach Sharon Zavala.

Zavala is the winningest high school volleyball coach in Nebraska history. Her team knows that and were excited to get this one for her.

“Anytime that we’re down at the state tournament that’s always the goal and just to do it for her I know it’s probably coming down to her last few years at Central Catholic, maybe but it feels great it always feels great,” said senior outside hitter Gracie Woods.

Coach Zavala who’s been coaching for nearly five decades has seen so many different scenarios that helps her teams when things become difficult.

“We love Zavala she’s such a great coach and always stays calm and composed,” said junior setter Carolyn Maser.

“She is funny, and cracks jokes and is a great coach overall, said senior middle Lucy Ghaifan.

With five seniors graduating they all said they’d remember the good times on the court, but it’s the things that happen off it that will be the most memorable.

“I’ll remember the fun memories and how we stayed so close and that’s what helped us on the court because how close we were,” said Ghaifan.

“I definitely love them so much they’re such great leaders I’ve been playing with them since second and third grade I’m definitely going to miss all the seniors I love them,” said Maser.
