Harden-Jefferson comes into this volleyball season reeling from their 2018 bi-district playoff loss to Livingston, a bitter loss that still lingers. After a second place finish in District 22-4A and a 2017 season that saw the Lady Hawks go three playoff rounds, deep expectations were shattered before November.
A new day shines in Sour Lake as 2019 brings with it a new sense of competition and a clean slate.
"We're coming into this season with the mindset of competing, just as we did last year," said JoLee Kolander.
"Our second place finish made out for a really good season, we were disappointed in the playoff loss but we are looking forward not backward."
