Beck's Prime Team of the Month: Big changes inside stable at Memorial volleyball
After 38 years in coaching, Memorial coach Beth Gammill will not be patrolling the sideline in 2019. Gammill retired after an illustrious career. Stepping in will be Kaddie Platt, which is a huge get for Spring Branch ISD. Platt was the University of Houston volleyball head coach for six seasons and built Houston Baptist University (HBU) for 17 years.
Platt has to replace superstar Sanaa' Dotson, who is off to Oklahoma, but she has some pieces returning.
Lyla Traylor is the top returning kill artist, followed by Brooke Duncan. Logan LeRoux is the quarterback at setter and had over 550 assists a year ago. The 'Stangs went 14-2, finishing second in District 17-6A. The season came to a screeching halt in the second round as Class 6A State Runner-Up Ridge Point blanked the Mustangs.
With Platt and her college coaching pedigree at the helm, the sky could be the limit in 2019.
