Coach: Cory Whitmore.

2018: 11-5; 7-3, second in conference.

Returning letter winners: seniors Maya Toomey-Stout (first-team, all-conference in 2018), Scout Smith (second team), Hannah Davidson, Emma Mathusek; junior Chelsea Prescott.

Key newcomers: seniors Lucy Sandahl, Zoe Trujillo, Raven Vick.

Coach’s comments: “Our expectations and goals for this season would be to finish toward the top of our league, setting ourself up to make a deep run in districts/regionals and make it to the state tournament. It is always our goal to be playing our best, most cohesive volleyball, peaking at the end of the season.

“We have a strong number of returning varsity players that have valuable experience and considerable leadership skills. I believe that our program is to the point that we reload and have varsity-ready players fill the roles left by graduating-seniors.

“I’m so proud of the summer/off-season work that players put in to be ready for the hard work and focus this season will require in order to reach out goals.”
