MISSION - The Upper Valley’s Big 6 volleyball season hasn’t given too many surprises, with the exception of Mission Veterans Memorial, and it seems every week that 12-year Lady Patriots head coach Diana Lerma walks onto the court, there’s a new surprise.
This week Lerma learned that her Lady Patriots were ranked No. 16 in the nation by MaxPreps Xcellent 25 National Volleyball rankings after stringing together five straight weeks as No. 1 in the Texas Girls Coaches Association state rankings.
“These girls are going one game at a time,” Lerma said. “We’ve all got goosebumps. Now the expectations and communication among the girls is to step it up a notch.”
