Thoughts from the Coach: "We have a lot of experience returning and the expectations are much higher. Having Taylour (Fatheree) back after missing last year will be a big plus. We have a good group back and we are adding a very good freshman class. I think we will be really good and fun to watch as much on defense as on offense. Will play a little faster since we are not as big as some teams in the conference.
"The goal is always to win the conference, but the OAC is one of the toughest volleyball conferences in the country. We try to recruit locally and have several local players on the roster. I am very confident with the seniors and they have taken over the leadership role allowing the coaches to concentrate on other things. We are optimistic with a good group back and the addition of 13 new good kids that want to learn.
"Ohio Northern University was picked pre-season to be No. 1, The University of Mount Union has a good group back and Heidelberg will also be strong."
