Striking Hot Irons

Celebrating Reagan Irons 500th Kill at the end of the match against Bellefonte.

Junior outside hitter Reagan Irons hit a big milestone recently, becoming only the third player in Tyrone volleyball history to reach the 500th kill mark.

Irons made her 500th kill in the second set against Bellefonte on September 28th. She joins former Lady Eagles Makenna Bauer and Kylie Gooding on the school’s 500 kill list.

“When I reached my 500th kill it was a very rewarding feeling, especially with the team around me all excited for me. It felt really good,” said Irons.

When you can contribute a kill or an ace it makes all the practices worth it

Tyrone Head Coach Brandi Moyer is very proud of her accomplishment and happy to have Irons on the team.

“Reagan has set boundaries for herself and for the team, creating a ceiling for the program that is always getting higher,” said Moyer. “ Her commitment for the game shows on and off the court, and that is something that impacts younger Tyrone volleyball athletes tremendously.”

She has been playing volleyball for seven years, including with her offseason club volleyball teams.

“I love playing because the team atmosphere is so much fun. Especially when it gets really competitive,” said Irons. “When you can contribute a kill or an ace it makes all the practices worth it.”

Irons has contributed not just to the TAHS varsity team, but also to her club teams for the Horseshoe Volleyball Club and Revolution Volleyball Club. Irons went to Nationals in Florida in 2019 as an eighth-grader.

While she still has another year of high school volleyball left, she already plans to attend Lock Haven University in 2023, and play as an outside hitter.

Irons encourages young players to strive to be the best that they can be.

“Show up during the off-season, and even if you are not the best player in the gym you should give the most effort,” said Irons
