AGWSR Volleyball Rebuilds After Losing Eight Seniors to Graduation
8/20/2014 - The AGWSR volleyball team will have another young group in tow to start the fall season after losing eight seniors last year. Seven of the eight seniors saw regular playing time in 2013, including virtually the entire back row and both Danielle Henning and Kim Ellingson at the setter position.
One of the key returners for this year will be senior hitter Ashley Sicard, who saw her junior year come to an early end due to a foot injury. Sicard helped last year's group win nine matches, but come within one win of a state tournament appearance. AGWSR took a set from Guthrie Center in the regional final, but fell short in their bid to reach Cedar Rapids.
The Cougars' season officially begins next Tuesday night at the Grundy Center quad, with matches against the Spartans, Hudson and West Branch.
