PANAMA CITY, Fla. (WJHG/WECP) -With the high school volleyball season right around the corner, the Dolphins at Mosley are putting in some serious work.

“I want the girls to understand that anything worth having, you have to work hard for, so, being a playoff game, a state championship, it doesn’t just happen,” said Mosley volleyball coach, Michelle Mask. “You have to work for it, so coming in here and putting in serious hours is a commitment.”

A normal weekday for the Fins starts at 6:30 a.m. with workouts till 9:30. They then head out and make their way back to the gym at 2:30 and stay until 6:30.

“It’s an awkward time to take out of our day,” said upcoming Mosley senior, Madison Kinard. “But it’s honestly going to be worth it, and after the workouts, you feel good. Then you come here, and you’re excited for your season to come up, so that’s really exciting.”

Even though they are still in the offseason, Coach Mask is seeing some serious potential from her team.

“This group is really special,” said Coach Mask. “I probably say that every year, but I seriously mean it this year. We are bigger than we’ve ever been at Mosley, and I’m excited. I think the future is very bright for the team this year.”

But there’s still work to do.

““I think this year, we definitely have the talent,” said upcoming Mosley senior, Liberty McLean. “It’s just bring everyone together and getting that chemistry there. That’ll be huge for us.”

Even as the season looms, the Fins are just happy to see some normalcy after a hurricane was followed by a pandemic.

“Last year was such a different year with when we could practice and girls being sick or out, social distancing,” said Coach Mask. “Being able to run bleachers and do sprints and all the stuff we normally do here, it’s nice to bring that back.”

Part of getting back to normal is dedicating lots of hours of hard work hoping it pays off on the court.
