Lady Dolphins Volleyball Team Hits the Beach

Panama City Beach, FL---It was a beautiful beach day Friday and among those able to take advantage of that, the Mosley girls volleyball team.

Call it a nice change of pace for one of this region's more dominant prep teams, with a purpose.

Mosley head coach Steve Canfield deciding to take his girls out of the gym and give them a chance to practice under the sun, and on the beach sand behind Sharky's restaurant in P.C. Beach.

No doubt it's a much different kind of workout for the Lady Dolphins, who usually do this kind of workout before the season begins. Here's coach Steve Canfield.

"In the summer, July and August every Friday we beach practice. We spend time in the sand because they, one it gets you in good shape and two it takes away a lot of fear from the girls. They're not afraid to dive so when they take it back to the court, they're not afraid to dive. They get a lot of fear away in the sand.

And a day at the beach a nice reward for a season's worth of hard work. Mosley tied for the top seeding with Niceville in 6-A district 2, the Lady Eagles then won a coin flip to give them the number one seed, Mosley number two. That tourney next week at Choctaw.
