Coach Campbell says: “Our focus this year, with seven returning players, is to pick up our season where we left off. They took the No. 2 team in the state to four sets, playing close in every game, and our kids left the court that night with the affirmation that they are the brink of going from good too elite. Our district will be tough this year. We will have to come ready to compete each night in order to earn a playoff spot.”
