On the JV side, I want to praise the leadership of Kimber Duncan at the setting position. She has done a nice job of quarterbacking the team and breaking in the younger players. Yuli Triana and Mariah Dowling have provided needed leadership for the JV as well.” Gillespie continues saying, Coach Bevan has their stats/scores). We are sad to have lost the services of Emma Sanders for the season as she broke her finger during our scrimmage last Friday and had to have surgery. Her services setting and hitting will be sorely missed.”
