On Sept. 1, the Lady Cavaliers triumphed over the South Miami Lady Cobras in volleyball winning all three sets. A key player in the game was junior Yara Faour(#16). She had seven kills and served five aces, crushing the Cobras. Faour spiked her way into being this week’s Athlete of the Week. You can read more about Faour’s previous achievements here.

Faour has been a hardworking member of the varsity volleyball team since freshman year. Faour hopes to continue playing volleyball after high school, even if she doesn’t play at the collegiate level. Faour considers the team’s great chemistry to be one of the most important factors in the team’s wins and hopes this chemistry will take them all the way to districts.

This season, my ultimate goal is to go to districts; I think we are more than capable of going to districts and we’re improving our skills.”

— Faour said

Faour and the Lady Cavaliers volleyball team are on the road to districts, so keep an eye out for #16 as she takes on Southridge in the Gables gym at 3:30 PM on Sept. 12.
