Thanks for a great season!
The Lady Panthers began their VISAA tournament run with a solid 3-0 win over Trinity Episcopal in the opening round which earned them a trip to Petersburg and a spot in the semi-finals. There they met fellow WCAC - Ireton. After Ireton took the opening set, the Panthers responded by dominating the next 3 sets to win a spot in Saturday's Championship match against cross-town rival Flint Hill. This marked the 3rd consecutive year of this matchup and unfortunately the Panthers weren't able to come out on top.
Despite the loss the Panthers had a super year finishing with a 20-7 record and have the distinction of being the only team to beat Flint Hill, Good Counsel and Holy Cross during the regular season. This marks the end of a great run by our graduating seniors who ended their 4-year careers with an outstanding 89-32 overall record.
WCAC 1st Team: Hailey Rubino, Brooke Stanley
3rd Team Madi Page

Paul VI Girls' Win National Academic Award
For the third time in four years the Paul VI Girls’ Varsity Volleyball team has been awarded the American Volleyball Coaches Association (AVCA) Team Academic Award. This award recognizes teams that have achieved a minimum of a 3.3 GPA for the entire 2014/2015 academic year. The award was given to 237 high schools out of almost 17,000 that participate.
The team’s success on the court during this past season can be directly linked to their achievements in the classroom. This achievement is a tribute to not only our players but also their families as well as our Paul VI faculty/staff. “I stand in awe of them” says Coach Farrar, “after a tough match on the road I can go home and decide to not grade those papers, but they must do their assignments, do them well and they do”.

UNBELIEVABLE - 2015 Boys Varsity
The Panthers completed a simply unbelievable season by winning the ISBVL Title in convincing fashion, 3-0, over a scrappy and determined Spencerville. Not only did the Panthers finish the season undefeated, 19-0, they were an incredible 56-0 in sets. An unheard accomplishment.
This is the Panthers 6th title in 8 years in the ISBVL. Next season will find the Panthers working to rebuild as we graduate 9, count 'em 9, seniors. But if history means anything, the objective will be the same - be the best the ISBVL has to offer!
2015 Boys' Varsity
Our boys compete in the Interscholastic Boys Volleyball Leage (ISBVL). We have tremendous success over the past few years winning 5 of the last 7 league title including 2014. We are excited about defending our title. We have a lot of talent coming returning and are anxious to get on the court to defend out title!
2015 Summer Camps
Our Summer Development Camp held June 22-25 from 6:00pm to 9:00pm is always one of the yearly highlights of our program. Aimed at 3rd to rising 9th graders we expose the campers to all aspects of volleyball beginning with the all-important pass and ending with the critical serve. We also offer a "Get Ready For Tryout" Camp August 10 & 11 from 6:00pm to 9:00pm. This 2-day intense camp is geared towards getting the high school player ready for their respective high school tryouts. This summer we've added a new and exciting High School Skills Competition camp. Campers will get an opportunity to see how they stack up against their peers in contests designed to test their abilities to serve/receive against serves up to 50 mph. We'll also, using a speed gun find out who really can hit the hardest and has the fastest serve. It promises to be a really fun and competitive 3 days July 6 - Jul 8 from 6:00pm to 9:00pm.
2015 Girls' Off-Season
The 2014 PVI Volleyball team had a tremendous season finishing with a 26-5 record overall and 16-2 in the always tough WCAC. For the 2nd consecutive year the Panthers played in the championship match in both the WCAC and VISAA. We ended the year ranked 9th in the Washington Post and 3rd in the VISAA. While we have lost several valuable Seniors to graduation we return talented team focused on one thing - taking this thing one step further. To do that takes hard work during the off-season. Our players participate on numerous club teams and open gyms to improve their skills.
