Congratulations to Anna Walker for being named Athlete of the Week. The Sports and Entertainment Marketing classes at Socastee High School in partnership with the Athletic Department sponsor this weekly award.
Anna Walker is a senior on the varsity volleyball team and helped the Lady Braves to a winning record this season and a playoff appearance. Anna has played volleyball for five years and is a middle blocker. She also plays for the Grand Strand Juniors Volleyball Club and will be representing Socastee in the North South All Star Game in November. “I love the teamwork and bond on every team I play for and the feeling of a big win,” she said. Anna describes herself as determined, hardworking, and encouraging. She credits her coaches and teammates for helping her become the standout player she is today. “My favorite memory from this season would have to be beating Carolina Forest for the first time in two years, with my favorite group of girls by my side!” she explained.
Coach Garrett coached the Lady Braves to a 9-5 overall record this season, going 8-2 in the region. The girls earned a #2 seed in the playoffs before losing a tough first round match-up with Chapin. “Anna Walker is an all around great person and player,” said Coach Garrett.
