The Lady Longhorn volleyball team outdid even their coach’s expectations this past weekend when it finished third in the Coconino Invitational in Flagstaff. The team made its best showing at the tournament, taking third out of a dozen teams. The performance comes on the heels of the team placing fourth at the Payson Invitational Tournament in early September, despite losing several players to injuries in the interim. “I was extremely proud of them because we were really threadbare,” said coach Arnold Stonebrink. “We still have girls out with injuries, plus we had one backup front row player who never even showed up.”
