The Lady Vikings have a new coach this season: Jake LaClair.
Optimism is high for a successful season.
“We have a lot of new girls, it will be an exciting new season for us,” he said. “We’re excited that we are able to play a full season, able to play some different teams we weren’t able to play last year for that shortened season. So, we’re excited, I’m excited. We have a lot to learn, a lot to improve on, but I think we’ll be able to do it.”
“I think we’ll be a pretty good team,” player Sophia Ingerson said. “We’re improving on a lot of stuff still, but it’s going good so far
“I’m super optimistic,” Ava Kowalow said. “I think we’re really improving this year and we have a lot of good girls on the team, five seniors, I think, so it will be sad to see them go next year but I think we’re really working hard this year and it should be a good season.”
“We have a really good team, we’re starting to really improve,” Leah Ingerson said. “Our setting, our hitting – everything is really improving.”
