Goats post first league win against Omak
by Richard Uhlhorn
“The girls are working hard and are fun to coach,”
said Chelan Volleyball Coach Donene Hendricks.
Hendricks has six seniors on the varsity squad this
year including standout outside hitter, Abby Phelps. Junior Makenzie Harris, at
5’11” will also be doing outside hitting duty while senior Jenny Sundberg (5’11”)
will be taking up the middle as a blocker for the team.
Senior Karle Pittsinger, at 5‘10” will also serve on
the team as a middle blocker. Sophomore Emma Stockholm (6’2”) will work the
right side of the net and help with middle blocking while senior Aleea Ferguson
will work the back court with senior Megan Robinson who is this year’s Libero.
Senior Tess Young is also set up as a defensive player. Junior Johanna Fuller
will work the front line as a setter for the hitters. At 5’9” sophomore Haley
Holiday will work the right side of the net and set the ball.
Chelan’s success comes from a strong program headed
up by Hendricks and the team set the tone for the season last Thursday,
September 12 when they played the first league match of the year against Omak.
Chelan came away from Omak with a 25-11, 25-14,
26-24 win. Both the ‘C’ Squad and JV squad posted wins with the varsity.
