Volleyball team must work as one

Carrie Moore
Published: Thursday, August 22nd, 2013

If the volleyball team wants to repeat last season’s success — finishing 24-10 and second in the Black Hills Conference (6-2) — every player is going to have to step up and work better as a whole. 
“We need to have chemistry as a team,” said Renae Schneider, head coach. “Our passing also has to improve for us to be successful.”
The Wildcats lost six strong players to graduation — Moe Mack, Ally Spring, Kayla Halbmaier, Sarah Mills, Lacey Harkin and exchange student Lisa Lovoll — as well as two returning letter winners — Tia Goebel and Mesa Goebel.
“With what we lost from last year, our goal is to improve every game out,” Schneider said. “We feel we can be competitive with everyone, but we have to play together as a team and not have selfishness overcome teamwork.”
Tia would have been a fourth year starting setter for the team.
“The setters will need to step it up,” Schneider said. “The biggest thing we will miss from Tia is her floor leadership. She was a two year floor captain and replacing that leadership will be tough.”
