P.K. Yonge volleyball team scores state title


Hard work and dedication are values touted by P.K. Yonge faculty—and not just in the classroom. This year, that hard work and motivation from last year’s near-miss at a state volleyball title served as inspiration in the gym as the Blue Wave girls’ volleyball team won the Florida Class 4A state championship for 2014-15.

Team members Courtney Chappell (class of 2015), Sammy Mueller (‘16), Jac’cara Walker (‘16), Gabby O’Connell (‘16), Cameron Childs (‘18), Simone Harris (‘18), Amanda Phegley (‘18), Lacey Richeson (‘18), Jaq Mueller (‘19), Kiki Sermons (‘16), and coach Chad Davis returned to a hero’s welcome on the P.K. Yonge campus and a schoolwide rally celebrating the new state title winners.

The team, earning the Blue Wave’s first state volleyball championship since 2002, can stake claim as one of the greatest teams in school history. With a large contingent of underclassmen, all eyes are on next season when the P.K. Yonge girls defend their title.
