Ell-Saline Volleyball Looks to Continue Tradition
Mike Hammett - September 1, 2014 6:16 pm
After losing seven seniors to graduation, fifth-year Ell-Saline volleyball coach Erica Jensen is looking for a younger group to help the Cardinals in 2014.
The Cardinals return seniors Alleigh Weems, Darby Wikoff and Emma Drees. Jensen is looking for juniors Katelynn Winter, Catelyn Richards, Stalee Diehl and Morgan Kindlesparger to help out on the varsity.
“We have a good group of leaders,” Jensen said. “The three seniors have a lot of varsity experience and that will help us with the transition.”
Jensen wants to see improvement throughout the season.
“Every day we want to continue to get better and by the end of the season be playing our best volleyball,” Jensen said.
The Cardinals were 24-9 a year ago after finishing as Class 2A state runner-up in 2012.
Ell-Saline opens the season on Tuesday, hosting a quadrangular starting at 4pm.
