"The O'Connell High School Lady Bucs volleyball team has faced a great deal of adversity the past 2 years. We are in Galveston, Texas and lost our gymnasium to hurricane Ike during the 4th week of the season last year, and had to play the remaining games on the road. This year we still do not have a gym, but that hasn't stopped these girls from working hard. Despite having to borrow various gyms all over the county, the girls were able to earn 2nd place in their district, the highest finish in school history. With hard work and dedication, they have shown that anything is possible.
On top of that, this season is a bittersweet one, as 9 of the varsity players are seniors and will be leaving before the gym repairs are finished. The shirts we designed were a true testament to the girls willingness to succeed. People counted us out, but the team knew better. "Arrrrrgh you ready?" is the perfect slogan for us, and Custom Ink did a perfect job of advertising our motto."
