Student displaced due to Hurricane Harvey could be the reason for West Oso's volleyball success

Posted: Updated:

"Her name is Britney Goodwin and I love the kid. She's a great kid," those are the words of West Oso's coach Sherri Cain.

"She chose to come to West Oso, which was great the girls accepted her she fit right in. You wouldn't have known she hadn't been playing with the girls forever, so it was a pleasant surprise to have her come," continued Cain.

But there was a time when Britney could have left and went back to Rockport-Fulton. The team was able to resume play, but, her house was destroyed in the hurricane,  along with a couple of vehicles, their barn, cabins and family restaurant was badly damaged. Britney thought it best to remain at West Oso.

"I just felt like my living conditions at home, I felt like coming here would really help my parents, my family, and I really clicked with the team. So, I figured if I stayed it would help me and my parents, and it would take a little weight off my shoulders," said Goodwin.

And staying at West Oso, one could arguably say that she is the reason West Oso made it to the playoffs.

"She just clicked fit in great and I think her coming in, playing with these girls, made everyone better. She made them better and my girls made her better; and it just worked out great," said Cain.

Interestingly enough, Rockport Fulton's volleyball team also made it to the playoffs. But Britney is happy where she is at and still communicates with her old teammates in Rockport. 

"They miss me a lot and I miss them.  It would be nice to play with them, but at the same time, I like playing here. So they miss me a lot and they get mad. But its OK cause we are like a little family, so like a love hate relationship right now," concluded Goodwin.
