Volleyball Gold Team
Thornton Academy's newest varsity sport is girls' volleyball. Thornton Academy has one of the largest programs in the state, with four teams. The volleyball program has a few traditions that they've picked up over the years. They have a "pink" game every October where they make our own pink jerseys and decorate the gym for breast cancer awareness. They've also incorporated traditions from other TA teams, such as singing the Alma Mater on the bus after road wins, and pasta parties.
Practices and home matches are held in Linnell Gymnasium.
Tryouts for the volleyball team begin in mid-August. While the varsity team can be competitive, less experienced players are encouraged to join one of our other teams.
