Another quality El Paso club is on the map and getting recognition from LoneStarVolleyball.com, this time as the #6 18’s club team in Texas!
For the past few seasons, EL PASO WILDFIRE has just missed its quest for an Open bid. And this year they are off to a fast start, opening the season with a first place win at the Chili Spike tourney in Albuquerque. Gone from last year’s team is Caroline Brown, who is now an OH at Davidson, but there is a ton of talent back, starting with one of the state’s best setters in Alexia Heist, El Paso’s All-City MVP. And she has some weapons. Sophomore phenom Monica Corrujedo, Nikira Fults, Rose Diaz and senior Franquee Acosta can deliver the heat. The team has made some nice additions in Mackenzie Clark, a 6-foot senior All-State OH from 2009 New Mexico state champion Rio Rancho, and middle Jasmine Bryant. The defense should also be very solid, led by all-state libero Megan Dominguez and newcomers Victoria Castro and Judith Gutierrez.
Losing Brown was a big loss to the team, but it looks like the rest of the team is stepping it up nicely. The Clark mention was also pretty nice. Keep up the great work Wildfire!
