Volleyball Season Outlook
The Lady Conquistadors are coming into this season with a new look. They are returning three players, starters from the previous year.
The addition of an international setter-Alyse Barclay-The squad is looking to improve in the standing this year. A transfer sophomore from Monument Colorado, Victoria Cross-left handed- adds an advantage in the frontline. The addition of freshmen, Jasmine Pickett from Norman High School, Camie and Janae Hunter from American Fork high school, Chelsie Beougher from Jetmore, Angie Cabeen from Dumas high school and Stephanie Caro from Satanta High school are completing this year’s roster.
Defensively the team looks stronger than it did a year ago. With three defensive specialists the responsibility I shared now from the libero and the two defensive specialists and that change is expected to have a positive impact.
The team has great net presence. Big blockers are expected to continue DC3’s excellence at the net. Last year the team finished top 10 in the country in blocks per set. They are expected to repeat last year’s success at the net.
The team is determined and willing to do whatever it takes to compete. They are an excited group, close to each other and the game and they take care of each other.
The schedule is again, grueling. All the players report for practice August 3rd and the season starts August 18th at the Butler scrimmage. Beyond that the team will play in thirty plus matches this year, starting Friday August 24th in Council Bluffs Iowa at the at the Iowa Western tournament tournament.
First home game is Wednesday September 3rd against Cloud County and Tuesday October 23rd at Home against Garden City CC is the last regular season match. The support the team received last year was amazing. We hope to keep it growing. We would like to extend our invitation to all the local and surrounding area volleyball enthusiasts to come to our games and be a part of our growing program.
