Congratulations to the girls on placing 5th in the State in 2021. By far the deepest Beach Season to date and Braden River over came their seeding in the last 3 post season tournaments. The pirates were seeded last coming into the event and ended up with a 5th Place Finish!
SARA HALL & ANDREA GARCIA MOVING ONTO THE NEXT LEVEL.
Sara Hall has attended Braden River HS since her Sophomore year. She was a 3-year varsity starter and 2-year team captain. She also led the Braden River Beach Volleyball team into the State Semi-Finals her first two years playing in the number one seed. She is one of the top beach players in the state of Florida and will be attending Tulane University in 2021 on an athletic scholarship.
Andrea Garcia moved to Bradenton, FL from Puerto Rico the summer before her Freshman year. Andrea was a 4-year varsity starter for the Pirates as well as anchoring the number 2-seed for four years on the beach team. Along with Sara she was a leader on the court with her passion and effort during matches. Andrea recently signed to play at Fayetteville State University in North Carolina as a Defensive Specialist.
We cannot thank both girls enough for the effort, dedication, and love they brought to Braden River Volleyball. We are so proud of these two and know that they will have bright futures playing at the next level!
