Spotlight on Dewey’s Savannah Serafin

Savannah Serafin is one of several senior Dewey High School volleyball players who have understood—firsthand—the anatomy of progress and the rewards for success.

As a freshman, the Lady Doggers’ volleyball class of 2022 stumbled and struggled with a 2-26 record.

Three seasons later, Serafin and her fellow veteran warriors broke to a 21-9 record, including a regional win in Class 4A.

In her sophomore and junior seasons, Dewey amassed a combined record of 19-28 and improved every year.

Over the four years, Dewey’s senior group has recorded 42 wins, an average of more than 10 a year. Not bad for the start of the trip at 2-26.

“I really think it was the drive and practice,” Serafin, who played multiple roles throughout her career, said of Dewey’s development as a volleyball power. “We did so many exercises and learned so many skills and different things. I think a lot of it was our mindset too. … Then we grew into it.”

Serafin’s love of volleyball isn’t over yet.
