The volleyball skills of Elizabeth Scott is keeping her on the court this summer.
Later this month, Scott travels with her club team from Tupelo to the Amateur Athletic Union national championship in Orlando, Fla., at Disney's Wide World of Sports. She will also represent Starkville High School one more time before her move to Heritage Academy in Columbus by participating in the Mississippi Association of Coaches All-Star Game in July.
Scott's club team has practiced once to twice per week. She plans to leave for Orlando on June 14 and will be there for almost a week for competition.
"It's a bunch of girls coming together," Scott said. "It's like a club that I played during the club season and a different team was put together to go to nationals. We're going to be pretty good, but there are going to be some really good teams there."
Scott was co-captain and the starting outside hitter for the Lady Yellowjackets during the 2010 season. She led SHS in attacks with 451 attempts and had 118 kills, an average of 1.5 kills per game.
Scott also led the Lady Jackets with 282 digs with an average of 3.5 digs per game.
"Elizabeth has been playing volleyball for a long time," Starkville coach Lauren Love said. "She has the experience and the court presence. When she gets on the volleyball court, she enjoys it and obviously loves the game. She plays hard and it shows in her performance."
Scott received the Offensive and Defensive Award in helping the Lady Jackets to a 20-10 record last season. She was selected to the 2010 Tupelo Volleyfest All-Tournament Team.
