Young Talent Ready For Success

With the 2018 Viking Volleyball season in full swing, the Vikings look to have another successful season. This year the Vikings will be rebuilding their team after losing 5 senior starters to graduation. The 15 player roster will give them the options they need to get it done. This young team looks to be energetic and swift in hopes to progress through the season.

Several players switched positions this season. Seniors Grace Schwarz and Lindsay Schutz moved to outside hitters from middle and are looking strong in their new position. Erin Boggs has stepped up in the setting role, changing from the DS position. Jada High is the only returning starter that stayed in the same position and has picked up from where she left off a year ago. Others that look to earn starting positions this season are Aleya Hueftle and Johanna Ford who look to move into the middle hitter positions. Jennica Dannehl on the right side and Macie Steinbrink as a serving specialist.

Even though the Vikings will be taking on many tough teams, they hope to grow together and become one of the top contenders in the area.

Returning to this year’s team are seniors Lindsay Schutz and Grace Schwarz, juniors Jada High and Jennica Dannehl, sophomores Macie Steinbrink, Anna Pelton, Karley Patterson, Erin Boggs, and Aleya Hueftle. Incoming freshman are Johanna Ford, Jordan Hilmer, Julissa Estrada, Jameson High, Yesenia Lopez, and Kenzy Drain.
