Coach Sandy Moore and the Flashes have to reload after graduating nine players from a historic 27-5 season.
“We are small in numbers, but we have some good players back,” Moore said. ‘We have a good foundation, a good start, with a lot of JV players up from last year.”
The Flashes can count on returnees in senior setters Elleanne Moore, 375 digs, 102 assists; and Kayla Green plus junior hitter Jenna Riley, 162 kills, 36 blocks.
“It will be fun and a challenging,” Moore said. “I’m very excited for this season because we will see a lot of growth from beginning to the end. And just to be able to build the program the next two seasons should be very exciting.”
Sophomores Rachel Loobie, middle blocker Emily Jewell, Dayton Thompson and Becca Hundley and freshman Carly Sobieralski, younger sister of former Flashes standout Haley Sobieralski Walsh 934 assists, 407 digs, 167 kills and 56 blocks.
Senior Kenzie Turner is out for the season with a knee injury, and classmate Sophia Cordova is nursing a stress fracture in her left ankle.
The Flashes would like to defend their Conference Indiana title before moving to the Hoosier Crossroads Conference next year.
