    Ashley Yost, voleyball player #6, at McDowell High School may only be 5″ 3″, but her intense vertical jump, mighty kills, and amazing serves keeps the teams spirit alive. She is everywhere on that court. Watching her play is an inspiration that you don’t have to be as tall as an amazon to play competitive volleyball. Take notice to the power Ashley displays and the positive spirit along with her dynamic athleticism.
