2009 Austin Performance 16-1 Black Mamba volleyball team. Dedicated in memory of teammate Halle Brent who defined "mamba toughness" throughout her courageous battle with cancer. The voice you hear at the beginning and end is Halle shouting her unique "yeah". During the Lone Star Classic Tournament, which was held in Dallas on April 10-12, the Black Mamba team, prior to the beginning of each match, handed each player of each opposing team a pink "h" heart button attached to a card that briefly explained Halle's story. Halle left us to be with the Lord on April 14, 2009. Austin Performance Volleyball recently announced that the AP jersey no. 6 will be retired and that each team next year will wear the pink "h" heart on their jersey similar to the tribute on the Black Mamba jerseys this year.
Turn up the volume and listen to Halle shout loud!
"We'll shout it out loud from the rooftop; We won't be quiet!"
