Trish Flowers , Coach

School: Cleveland

Coach, There were a lot of firsts for Cleveland volleyball this season, including the Class AAA Lady Raiders winning the first state-tournament match in program history. That?s because they advanced there for the first time, after winning a state sectional for the first time. They hosted that sectional because they won the Region 3 championship. But it all started with earning the District 5 regular-season and tournament titles ? things Ooltewah has repeatedly earned for the last few years. ?It?s like we knew we could do it, but we didn?t know if we were going to do it,? Flowers said of getting to the state tournament in her 15th season as coach. ?What I liked about this season is that we didn?t look too far ahead. We focused on the moment at hand. I don?t know how many trips to the state tournament we?ll end up making, but this is going to be the most special.?
