Hope you are preparing for a wonderful holiday. I wanted to share with you this solid ball control, 2024 DS Sydney Hay from Union Pines HS North Carolina. With 150 digs, Sydney is a gritty DS and floor general that’s a difference maker on the court. A 3 year varsity starting DS and a major contributor in their 2022 season. She performs well in high pressure situations and rises to the challenge. Strong leadership and accountability; not afraid of hard work and puts it in. Plays with confidence, not easily intimidated, mentally tough and keeps things positive with a next play mindset. Sydney has a quiet platform, highly accurate on serve receive with good reads and range. Gets in to cover hitters quickly and is very vocal. Has a wicked low line float serve with velocity. You can count on her to earn a few points at the line. We have no doubt Sydney will be a difference maker at the next level. Sydney has a 4.34 GPA and is undecided on her major.
