The Sandy Valley Lady Cardinals will need to gain experience quickly as it begins the 2016-17 volleyball season. Only two letter winners return, both starters, from last year's 11-13 squad.
Back are senior Alyssa Sines (setter) and junior Courtney Snyder (libero).
Also being looked upon to contribute are senior Addie Kirkbride (middle hitter); juniors Izzy Hysong (defensive specialist) and Alana Hill (middle hitter); and freshman Karlee Altimore (right-side hitter).
"We lack varsity-playing experience, but we are hitting hard and working as a team," commented Head Coach Shelly Crowe.
Sandy Valley opens up play at a tri match at Tuslaw with Lake Center on Saturday, Aug. 20.
