Drifter JV coach returns to her volleyball alma mater

Innovation, determination and pride are three words that only begin to describe new Colonial Beach High School junior varsity volleyball head coach, Cameron-Ann K. Standish.

After guiding the Drifters junior varsity volleyball team to a 5-8 record, which happens to be the best record in years for the young squad, Standish is determined to raise the level of competitive play. “I might be bragging, but I think that the JV team, and the entire volleyball program, is now comprised of some very gifted athletes,” Standish said. “I wish I could make comments about every girl on my team, as I am so proud of all of them.”

Evidence of the impact that Standish has had include victories over King & Queen Central (2), Essex, Washington & Lee and Lancaster. Rather than wait for a teammate to take the lead in passing or scoring, the entire team hustles and dives after each lose ball. Nothing is left to chance. “Last year, most of our girls could not serve the ball over the net, and our hitting skills, as well as passing skills were not quite up to par,” Standish said. “This year, it’s a whole new story! As the season continues, I believe my girls will progress, and develop their skill sets even more, and we will all be able to see the hard work that they put into making this season what they want it to be.”

A 2008 Drifter alumni, Standish currently attends Mary Baldwin College in Staunton, and is scheduled to graduate in May with a Bachelors of Business. Currently, she is employed with SAIC, as a facilities manager.
After playing for Fredericksburg Christian School for six years, she transferred to Colonial Beach, where she finished her high school athletic career with the Drifter volleyball program under former head varsity coach, Purkey. An athlete at heart, Standish is a firm believer is physical fitness. As a player, she has been involved in athletics both on the recreational and high school levels. “Athletics and being active are some of my passions, and I felt that I could share this passion with young women whom I feel have a great potential, and can do anything that they set their mind to.”

Two intangibles for the Drifters come in the leadership form of MacKenzie-Page Monroe and Sarah Ndiaye. Monroe serves as the team’s libero, while Ndiaye’s role is crucial as the Drifters’ setter.

On Thursday, the Drifters varsity and junior varsity volleyball teams will host conference rival Washington & Lee.
