Heather Dunbar is heading into her sixth season as the head volleyball coach at Cedaredge High School. Her assistants, Brenda Jenkins (fourth season) and Emily Cannell (third season) have 29 athletes to choose their teams from in 2013.
According to Dunbar, "We have more depth as a varsity team than in the last seven to 10 years. We have great older and younger kids. We should do well. I have high expectations."
The Lady Bruins have senior Rebecca Deal, a senior middle hitter, whom Dunbar calls the "heart and soul" of this year's team. Another heavily touted player for Cedaredge is Summer Herman (a starter last season) who Dunbar calls a natural athlete.
Dunbar notes her team is in a very competitive league that boasted three teams that went deep into last year's state tournament.
The Lady Bruins participated in a 13-team scrimmage last weekend in Montrose. This tournament is a yearly event that many local schools attend to help their teams prepare for the upcoming season.
Cedaredge is scheduled to begin regular season play on Sept. 5 in a home match.
Varsity action is set for 6 p.m. while the 'C' and junior varsity contests are slated for 4 and 5 p.m.blog comments powered by Disqus
