Warrior Volleyball Senior Night

Warrior Volleyball Senior Night

On Tuesday, October 23, we took a moment to honor the commitment of our 2019 Seniors and their parents to the Warrior Volleyball Program before they took to the court to play in their final home game of the 2018 season. This night was made even sweeter by a 5-set win over the Vista Ridge Rangers, affording the Warriors the opportunity to continue their season in the post season playoffs. Below are the class of 2019 Senior Bios:

Mikayla Piwonka, Team Manager—and her father Mike Piwonka

Mikayla has been with the program for the past 4 years as both an athlete and manager. However, Mikayla is so much more than a manager . . . she is the loudest cheerleader on the bench, a professional statistician, the official team hype-woman, and the assistant to the assistant coach! In addition to Westwood Volleyball, Mikayla is the Fellowship of Christian Athletes Co-President, a member of UNICEF, National Honor Society, Pacesetters, Charity Music Club, Partners in PE, and PROS. Next year, she plans to attend UT Austin where she will major in Psychology.
