SENTINEL TRIBUNE FALL SPoR'rs ROUNOUP Wednesday, August 28, 2013 Page 9 Charger volleyball brings back seven letter winners After posting a 9-1 second place conference record last year, hopes are high to win the conference and go deeper into playoffs Tom Merchant Sentinel Tribune WWG -- Coach Cathy Baumann is expecting her experienced squad to do well this season. She is assisted by Sue Herding and Stephanie Comnick. There is 25 girls out for the sport this year. Returning letter winners are, Dayna Comnick, Madison Takle, Alexa Byers, Abby Herding, Shiney Her, Jordaan Joel, and Elizabeth Woelber. Baumann notes Comnick is a seasoned outside power hitter. She is a consistent all- around player, aggressive both offensively and defensively. Abby Herding is coming into her second season starting in the setting position. She is a hustler on the floor and does a fantastic job keeping a fast offensive tempo on the court as well as mixing up the offense. She is a great defensive player and shows great precision from the serving position. When asked about her teams strengths, Baumann said, "We run a quick tempo offense with strong hitting power outsides. We have strong blocking on defense and hope to see some strong defensive plays at the net. We have a lot of talent on this team, which gives us a lot of options, so we are excited about that. As the season progresses Baumann hopes to see her team improve on passing accuracy, to offer several offensive options. "We are also looking to add a couple new plays, as well as develop our middle hitting options," she said. Baumann said, "we have been in the sec- ond spot in the Red Rock Conference for the past two years, and would like to stay up at the top. We definitely have the potential for great things this year!" Baumann is very optimistic about the upcoming season. "MCC, SWC, and SWU always seem to be our biggest competition in the conference. However, we go into every game knowing that if we want to come out with a win, we must put 110 percent of our effort on the court, no matter who is on the other side of the net, she said."
