The Bishop Verot volleyball team earned four victories during the 2020 season, including a win in the Private Eight Conference Tournament and another in the district playoffs. Verot faced one of the most challenging schedules in the state, facing off against such powerhouse programs as Berkeley Prep, Cardinal Mooney, Venice, Mosley, and East Lake.

The Vikings brought back eight seniors to the 2020 roster, who played a major role in the development and success of the team. The team relied on Bella Shahriari and Josie Bravo, both of whom were a menace on the offensive side of the net. They combined for 203 kills in the 2020-2021 season, with Bravo leading the team with 105 kills and Shahriari having 98.

The defense was led by Victoria Wentworth-Buchanan, who played libero for the Vikings. She came up with 145 digs this season. Maggie Harrel also played a huge role at the net blocking for the Vikings. The Vikings had two senior setters that got the ball to the open hitters with Malia Leonard having 215 assists and Maddy Logan having 115 assists. Other big factors on the offensive end included Rae-Lee Stefanacci, who picked up 80 kills, and Gracie Gerlach, who logged 37 kills for the Vikings this year.

The Vikings are excited for a promising season next year, with a number of underclassmen set to return. This group includes Morgan Crawford, a middle blocker, who had a breakout season with 30 kills and 30 kills for the Vikings. The volleyball program also looks forward to the development of freshman Marissa Peck, who finished second on the roster with 86 digs and third on the team with 15 service aces. The Vikings will also look for increased roles from underclassmen such as Caroline O’Halloran, Sophia LaRosa, Ava Schropp, Ava Hemann, and Isabel Schrotenboer.
