The Lady Warriors will be traveling to Diamond today to play their first JV and varsity matches of the season starting at 6 pm.
Senior Abby Pekarek says, “I feel really good about this game and the whole season. Diamond has been a tough competitor in the past however they lost some really good seniors and got a new coach this year. It will be a good game.”
The Warriors return two seniors — setter/outside hitter Abby Pekarek and middle blocker Kathryn Wiseman, along with juniors Katie Carr, an outside hitter, and libero Emily Hughey.
“They’ve done a really good job of mentoring the younger girls,” Steele said. “They really came together at the Licking camp in Branson.”
Kate Mieseler, a sophomore setter, leads a group of seven sophomores and three freshmen. “They’ll have a good opportunity to come together as a solid team over the next couple of years,” Steele said.
