Dear Friends and Fans of Bellaire Volleyball’s Lauren Donovan,

Bellaire’s varsity players will be unable to be with Lauren Donovan as she leads “Team Lauren” in the Head For the Cure 5K Race next Saturday morning.  In an effort to support her, we are asking Bellaire Volleyball fans and teammates to wear a “Team Lauren” t-shirt next Friday and the following Saturday morning as the Lady Cardinals  take the court against the Panthers from Houston Heights High.

Through a generous donation, each varsity player and team manager will receive an adult large, “Team Lauren” t-shirt.  Friends, coaches, teachers, family members and Bellaire Volleyball fans can support Lauren by ordering and wearing their own Team Lauren t-shirt!
The cost to make the t-shirt is $15. The vendors who designed, supplied and printed the “Team Lauren” t-shirts are forgoing their markup.  Any donation above the cost of the shirts will go 100% to Team Lauren’s “Head for the Cure” fund raising. You can make a donation at the time of paying for the t-shirts or go to the link below and join Lauren’s “Head for a Cure” Team. Any donation of any amount is greatly appreciated.

If you would like to order a shirt, contact, Barbara or David Hawes by 10am tomorrow; Friday, October 6th.  The order must be placed by 10:30 am.  If you want a size other than large please indicate that as well. 
T-shirts will arrive on Wednesday, October 11th and will be handed out at school, so fans can wear the shirt to school on Friday the 13th and Bellaire Volleyball teammates can wear their t-shirts to Saturday’s 10am match versus The Heights.
Barb and David Hawes will collect cash only donations at next home games.  Do not send money to school.


Our team is joining the fight against brain cancer by participating in Head for the Cure 5K - Houston next Saturday, October 14th.

Head for the Cure is dedicated to raising funds and awareness for brain cancer research and works to inspire hope for the community of brain cancer patients, their families, friends, caregivers and other supporters, while celebrating their courage, spirit and energy.

Every Head for the Cure event marks a day of celebration where those diagnosed with brain cancer are honored and celebrated by their friends and families, those who have lost their battles are remembered, and we are all inspired to carry on the fight. 

Funds raised by Head for the Cure support the Brain Tumor Trials Collaborative, a network of medical centers with the expertise and the desire to participate in state-of-the-art clinical trials investigating new treatments for malignant brain tumors.

Each year, over 200,000 people in the United States are diagnosed with a primary or metastatic brain tumor. More than 120 types of brain tumors exist, making effective treatment complicated. Cutting edge research is needed as we continue to make strides in this fight.

Please consider making a donation today in support of Team Lauren to help us reach our goal and to help Head for the Cure defeat brain cancer, step by step!

Lady Cardinals Honored

posted Jul 28, 2017, 6:40 PM by Bellaire Volleyball

Three Lady Cardinal graduates from the class of 2017 received scholarships from The Anchor Foundation in honor of Brianna and Jade Robinson.

Ella Hawes, 2017 co-captain and three-time All-District Libero/Setter, who will attend the University of Texas in Austin, Ellie Shaw, 2017 co-captain, who will attend Texas A&M, and Evony Nelson, who will major in Mechanical Engineering at Indiana Tech while playing volleyball for the Lady Warriors were the 2017 Anchor Foundation scholarship award recipients.  The scholarship funds will be used to offset costs of college text books and other required class materials.  Stacey Robinson awarded the scholarships in a ceremony at Bellaire High on July 13, 2017.

Stacey Robinson established The Anchor Foundation in the aftermath of a tragic automobile accident which claimed the lives of her daughters Brianna Robinson and Jade Robinson. Both were Bellaire High standout student athletes.  The foundation’s mission includes raising awareness about the dangers of distracted driving and support families in the aftermath of tragic loss.

Jade Robinson, a co-captain of the 2016 volleyball which made the deepest in the state playoffs in school history, was major contributor on the volleyball court and an inspired leader of the Lady Cardinals. To be honored as recipients of this scholarship, Ella Hawes, Ellie Shaw and Evony Nelson, have found a meaningful way to carry forward the legacy of the Robinson sisters.

“No one tells each other how they really feel about each other because they expect that you will have the chance to tell them later.  I have learned to tell people how much I appreciate them more when I have the chance. Don’t wait for tomorrow,” said Ella Hawes.  “I still don’t know if Jade ever knew how incredible I thought she was. She took me under her wing and looked out for me.”  Ella Hawes, played alongside Jade Robinson her sophomore and junior years. After Bellaire Volleyball retired their number 5 jersey to honor Jade Robinson, Ella wore number 5 on her club volleyball team to honor Jade.    

Ellie Shaw was selected for an internship with Harris County Budget Office, where she creates videos on the impact of Distracted Driving and DUIs. “I was attracted to this project because this is meaningful to me,” said Shaw. “We hope to show the videos in driving schools and high schools around the city.“  Like Jade Robinson, Ellie Shaw was co-captain for Bellaire’s Varsity Lady Cardinals her senior year.  Shaw will continue her efforts to raising awareness about avoiding Distracted Driving while in College Station and at home in Houston.

Of the three players, Evony Nelson will continue her volleyball career at Indiana Tech and purse a Mechanical Engineering degree.  Although Evony arrived at Bellaire after Jade’s senior year, she competed against Jade during club season and knew Brianna socially.  “It is an honor to receive this scholarship; and, we all need to recognize we have a responsibility to put down the cell phone while driving.  I have great respect for The Anchor Foundation’s mission and Ms Robinson efforts to raise awareness about Distracted Driving and it’s dangers.” said Nelson. 

Coach Ap Clarke said, “Wonderful way to honor Jade and Bri. Pay it forward.”

Evony Nelson Taking it Further!

posted Jul 28, 2017, 6:18 PM by Bellaire Volleyball

Evony Nelson signed with Indiana Tech!!!  Evony fills the final spot in the Lady Warrior 2017 volleyball class.  

Head coach Kourtney Wilson said, "We are happy to round out our 2017 class with Evony," "She has a ton of potential to be a great player in the future, comes from a very athletic and supportive background and I know she will really develop here at Indiana Tech. I am excited to see her contributions to the program over the next four years both athletically and academically."
Nelson, a 5'9" outside hitter, earned a First-Team All-District selection for 6A District 18 during her senior campaign for the Cardinals. She averaged 10 digs, eight kills, two aces and two assists per game.  Prior to Bellaire High, she was named team MVP as a sophomore for a private prep-school. Evony played club volleyball at an elite level for some of Houston's top club programs; Houston Juniors and Houston Skyline, 

Evony plans to major in Mechanical Engineering at Indiana Tech.

"My goal at Indiana Tech is to excel at the next level and contribute to a successful season and winning conference titles," Nelson said. "I choose to come to Tech because it has a great volleyball team with great coaches as well as a strong, highly recommended engineering program."
