FROM PRATTVILLE CHRISTIAN ACADEMY
Just weeks after helping lead the Lady Panthers to program history in the Alabama High School Athletic Association State Volleyball Tournament, Victoria Wheeler is making headlines again as the third student-athlete to declare her intent to play collegiate volleyball. In a signing ceremony held yesterday, Victoria signed with Faulkner University in Montgomery, Alabama.
Victoria holds the current school record for most varsity aces at 203, but her love for the sport came long before her contributions to PCA’s program. She’s been playing volleyball since elementary school at the local YMCA and other club organizations in the area. As a starter on the varsity roster since ninth grade, Victoria plays middle hitter.
“Victoria has been such a blessing to our program,” said Kaylon Cantrell, PCA’s head volleyball coach. “Over the past six years, she has developed into a great leader on and off the court. Her passion for the sport and her drive to continuously improve her skills is something that I will always appreciate about her. She will be missed, but I look forward to seeing what her future holds at Faulkner University!”
As Victoria prepares to join the Lady Eagles next fall, her teammates and coaches encourage her to take the advice she gave to underclassmen in a recent on-campus interview. “Set goals and go for them. Never give up and always give 100%. Enjoy every minute of it because time flies, and before you know it, you will have played your last game.”
