Thomas Heyward has a new volleyball coach, but the same goals.
Ashlie Layman, who was a multisport star at Thomas Heyward, is in her first season as varsity coach. She takes over a team looking to contend for a SCISA Class AA state crown.
Last season the Rebels were 24-0 during the regular season and reached the Upper Bracket of the state tournament. This season they expect to enjoy another strong regular season, but also want to finish the season with a state championship.
