Volleyball season begins next week
By Chase Grandi
The first volleyball game will be on Tuesday at 5:30 p.m. in Herlong.
Assistant coach Elizabeth Elorza said that the team is doing well. She said that earlier in the season she and the head coach had been weighing if there should be one or two teams.
Head coach Judy Guidotti said, however, that they had decided to combine the teams and would finalize the details with athletic director Katie Campbell and principal Marla Stock.
Elorza said that the players on the team need to commit to the team so they can start putting players in the positions where they are needed.
Principal Marla Stock said that sports are positive and encourage the students to be active and keep their grades up.
“They keep the kids physically active and improve their mental abilities,” she said.
Head coach Judy Guidotti said the girls are prepared for a good game against Herlong.
“They are looking forward to the challenge,” Guidotti said.
The Loyalton volleyball team has a 14-game schedule this year, with six games at home and lots of travel time–to Providence, Elk Creek, Westwood, and Core Butte.
There are 12 girls on the team this year.
