|Adena = The Lady Warriors enter the 2008 season with a lot of experience. The two-shade blue are led by
the potential SVC Player of the Year in senior Ashley Jordan. Jordan will be joined at the net by several
returning letter winners inlcuding Kelsey Bielanow, Kirsti Yates, and Megan Davidson.
The biggest change for Adena will come at setter. Senior Megan Purdin - the setter a year ago - has now
moved to libero to replace Casi Coy, and Coach Laura Smith will now ask freshman Cadie Cory to run the 5-1
|Southeastern = Head coach Lori Dresbach and her Lady Panthers enter the 2008 season continuing to rebuild
the program. Southeastern is a team that plays extremely hard and with great emotion. Contending for a league
title isn't a realistic goal; however, as the year goes on this improving program could be a dangerous opponent
on any given night.
|Zane Trace = The Lady Pioneers enter the 2008 season with expectations that are on the rise. Coach Andrea
Pettit's team is led by one of the league's most improved stars in Jessica Roepke. The 5-10, junior middle hitter
is a major factor at the net and her jump serve has helped make her a much more complete player.
Zane Trace will continue to combine some good young talent with their returners and will present a great
challenge at the net for many teams. If the passing and overall defense can hold-up for the red, white, and blue
this team has the potential to finish in the top-half for sure.
|Huntington = Like many years in recent Huntington volleyball, the Lady Huntsmen enter 2008 with a roster
that has great size and great depth. The green and white return several weapons at the net led by senior middle
hitter Alli Oyer. Coach Tina Magill's squad will once again be considered by many to be a top-four team, and if
they can catch some breaks then perhaps this could be the year that Huntington can move up into one of the
top couple of spots.
|Paint Valley = The Lady Bearcats return an experience team that includes eight seniors. Led by two
seniors in Cassie Sharp and Tristan Rumfield - both share setting and hitting duties in Paint Valley's 6-2
offense - Hanna Patterson's team will hope to become more than just a middle-of-the-pack volleyball
Kelli Cunningham returns as Paint Valley's defensive specialist and all-around athletes Tanner Walls and
Missi Holland will hit out of the middle for the black and gold.
|Piketon = Coach Earlene Lute's Piketon Redstreaks hope to continue making strides in 2008. Piketon has
some good size at the net including senior Andrea Beekman.
One of the brightest spots for the rebuidling Redstreaks comes in the form of 6-0 freshmen Alex Southworth.
Southworth is one of the league's best young players and as she improves Piketon should as well.
|Unioto = The new-look Lady Shermans are replacing several people from last year's graduation class;
however, the purple and gold does return one of the league's top players in Katelyn Jinks. Unioto also returns
senior middle hitter Kristin Vranicar.
Coach Aaron Ridenour's team will once again be one of the league's most athletic, and should be a factor in
this year's league race.
|Westfall = The Lady Mustangs will once again be one of the league's elite teams. Obviously, life after Cassie
Sowers leaves question marks; however, a ton of young talent is going to go a long way in giving Coach Lori
Merriman some answers. Suzy Gantz, Nicole Ratcliff, Haylie Joyce,HannahGaberiel, and Haley Gaberiel all
return with "big" match experience and shoudl help make the Lady Mustangs a major contender in this year's
race for the title in the SVC.
