Aledo head coach Claire Gay was honored on Monday with an induction to the Arlington High School hall of fame.

On Thursday, Gay received another honor after winning her 400th career match during the Leander Volleypalooza tournament, pushing Aledo’s season record to 10-7.

The Bearcats defeated Cinco Ranch 25-22, 25-19, and finished the day 3-0. They also beat Cornerstone and Georgetown.

During her first two seasons at Aledo, the Bearcats have gone 66-31. They won district in 2017, the year Aledo went to the state semifinals. Aledo went to the regional quarterfinals in 2018.

Gay was inducted into the AHS hall of fame after having a standout playing career with the Colts. She graduated in 1999.
