OZARK, Mo. -- The Ozark volleyball team headed East this morning on a familiar trip to Cape Girardeau.
For the fourth straight year, the Tigers are in the volleyball state final four.
And as KOLR 10's Justin Dougherty reports this is old hat for Ozark's Jackie Fugate.
The year was 2009, an Ozark freshman volleyball player made her first wide eyed trip to the state final four.
Jackie Fugate said, "My freshman year I was like wow, we just made it to state. This is awesome."
Fast forward to 2012 and senior Jackie Fugate is about to do something that most athlete's leave on the whiteboard as an unaccomplished goal.
Fugate said, "I never thought that I was going to do it every year after that so, it's awesome."
This year Jackie is making her fourth trip to state. That's right four for four.
Fugate said, "To make it every year is awesome and to have a team good enough all four years to go to state is just awesome."
Coach Justis said, "It's just a testament to her and what she brought to this program, she's just done great things."
And because she won a title as a freshman and finished third the past two years. Those wide eyes have now become more of a determined scowl.
Fugate said, "This is what I've told everyone, it's normal to me at this point. I'm not trying to sound cocky but I've never ended a volleyball season not at state."
But if you think four in four sounds easy, think again.
Justise said, "The thing is that every year the target gets bigger and bigger and bigger every year on your back."
This year the Tigers not only lost one, but two starters to season ending injuries. One of which, in the opening rounds of districts.
Justise said, "We didn't really hesitate to plug them in, it wasn't really a "oh my goodness" kind of a moment. We just got them, plugged them in, and kept on going."
All the way to state, for the fourth straight year.
