Kamiakin at the 2023 WIAA State Volleyball Tournament in Yakima, Washington

The Lady Kamiakin Lady Braves Volleyball team finishes their 2023 Varsity season at the 2023 Washington Interscholastic Athletic Association (WIAA) State Volleyball Tournament. 

Head Coach Morgan Schauble was proud of her team and what they accomplished.  "Despite falling one game short of bringing home a trophy, this year’s team left behind a legacy: undefeated regular season, MCC [Mid-Columbia Conferance] champs, District 8 champs, state academic champs, won the first round of state, 2 players of the year and many all-conference players. Their only losses this season were to the #1, #2, and #5 team in the state."
