“I’ve been coaching these kids for two years,” said Peaster head volleyball coach Autumn Threet, speaking recently at the signing celebration for Shalie Case, the fourth volleyball player to commit. “I think it’s just now hitting me emotionally that I’m losing these girls.
“They are very special kids and I know they are all going to be very successful at college.”
Threet, who took over the Peaster volleyball program two years ago after a stint at Springtown, expressed delight in being an influence to help the foursome to continue their educational and athletic careers.
“I think this is very impressive,” she said. “I have never seen four teammates go on to a college scholarship, especially at a [Class] 2A school. I’m just extremely proud.”
Threet, who actively helped the girls through the process of establishing next-level contacts, is resolved to help send more of her players to play college ball and hopes [this year’s commits] will pave the way to further promote the conception that kids from “smaller schools” can indeed play at the college level.
