Leading the team will be six letterwinners. Two seniors top the list in Hannah Hutcheson and Brittani Watson. Hutcheson will play outside hitter. Last season she had 83 kills, 150 digs and 30 ace serves. Watson will be a right side hitter who contributed 78 kills last year.
Other leaders include juniors Emily Mathews, Courtney Younge, Shelby Rayhons and Miranda Fredericks. Mathews will play middle hitter. She was a First Team All-Conference selection last year for Ventura. She recorded 170 kills, 148 digs and 54 ace serves. Both Younge and Rayhons received Second Team All-Conference last season for Ventura. Younge will be the team’s setter. She recorded 298 assists and had 26 ace serves.
