Hydesville's 2012 varsity volleyball team went undefeated this season. Their record was 16-0, and they never lost a single game. The team consists of nine eighth graders, which is 90 percent of the class. They are coached by their eighth-grade teacher, Mrs. Terri Spalding, and their assistant coach is their classroom aide, Mrs. Dawn Dill. The team won the Panther Classic Tournament at Rio Dell, beating Ferndale in the final game. As a reward they traveled to Stanford University where they had courtside seats for a Stanford vs. UCLA woman's volleyball match.

The Hydesville team was featured on the Sporting Youth, News Channel 3, for their undefeated season and great sportsmanship.
