Last Year’s Record (league) 7-3
Key returning athletes: – Johanna Kubacki Sr., Emma Salowitz Sr., Alyssa Rudgers Sr., Maryanne Sanford Sr., Brooke Barker Sr., Cassandra Trigger Sr., Danica Oldenburg Sr.
Comments on returning players: Having seven seniors will bring experience to the team. They are a very coachable team and work hard.
Lost to graduation: Rachel Vogel, Jessie Heilig, and Axelle Mousse
New athletes to the team: (please include grade) – Libby Tank Sophomore., Mya Garza Sophomore, and Emma Roberts, Junior.
Comments about your team’s strengths/weaknesses and any goals for the season: Each season brings a new team. We only lost two players; however, they were two very strong players. There are a few that will have to step up and fill in the gaps. I feel our offense is going to be strong having more height. The team is working hard at practice with serve receive, which is a weakness of ours. These girls want to win and work towards improving their stats.
Outlook for your league – Where do you see your team fitting in? The girls want to win the league this year, and we know Kingston will be the team to beat if we would like to accomplish that goal.
