CENTRAL ALABAMA SCOREBOARD OFFICE – “This is a huge opportunity for Hannah!” That’s how Prattville Christian Volleyball Coach Kaylon Cantrell summed up junior Hannah Jones’ invitation. Jones has been recognized by the American Volleyball Coaches Association as one to watch and will be a part of the AVCA Phenom Watch List when it drops August 30.
Cantrell: “She has worked hard on her skills, both in and out of season and she continues to improve on a daily basis. She’s a humble leader and wants what is best for the team. I’m excited to watch her continue to grow as a player and as an individual.”
According to AVCA invitation sent from Alex Fitzmorris-Som, the group’s Events and Research Specialist: “Uncommitted athletes named to the 2021 Phenom Watch List will be eligible to participate in the AVCA Phenom College Preparatory Program … an invitation-only event held in Columbus, Ohio, December 16-18.”
Jones: “This is an exciting opportunity. I am grateful for this recognition and I’m looking forward to continuing to improve.”
