Quotes from Hopewell coach Terry Borkovic: "Haley is a quiet leader that leads by example. She is the driving force behind our success this season. It is amazing to watch Haley in practice and matches as she gives 100% effort on each and every play. We have some great hitters in our section and Haley has had great success with digging and making some amazing plays. I feel that Haley is one of the top liberos in the AA classification. We have had some all state liberos at Hopewell and Haley is making a strong case for being one of the best to come through our program. Post season recognition should be a future reward for hard work and a great attitude. Haley is leading Hopewell in serving percentage and aces. Haley is a pleasure to coach. I enjoy watching her develop into an outstanding player and role model for our younger players."
