The Volleyball program at St Joseph Academy was started in the fall of 2015 at the Middle Division level. It was a small step in a great direction. Soon after, the Upper Division also had a volleyball team and with that more upperclassmen girls were interested in joining.
In 2015, the teams had a total of nine 8th graders and ten 7th graders. The 7th-grade team were undefeated champions in 2015 AND again 2016. The 8th graders finished the season at 5-8.
In 2016 High School volleyball took off and had a great showing with the JV team playing JV and varsity teams. That year they finished 8-5 over-all. The following season, 2017 was the team's first VARSITY season. The team, which comprised of 6 players, finished the season at 10 Wins and 5 losses.
In 2018 the teams were finally in TAPPS District, and the team did an excellent job in the first TAPPS varsity season. They finished the season 5-3 and as the District Runner-up; which gave them the chance to advance to the Play-Offs! This year, the teams hope to return to play-offs.
Currently, the program has twenty-four 7th and 8th graders and 23 high school girls on JV and Varsity.

"Volleyball was a great learning experience. It has taught me to be responsible and to work hard in order to succeed. It's also a great way to interact with other players and meet new friends."
