Cassville volleyball sets sights on 2015
Lady Wildcats to work on fundamental growth
With a loss in the opening round of district play, the work for Cassville Coach Hannah Ketterman and her Lady Wildcats volleyball team is just beginning.
"Our girls fought all season," Ketterman said. "We just didn't get the wins to show it."
Ketterman said this season had been a whirlwind, and at times, she wasn't able to spend enough time to work on specific problem. All that will change this offseason.
"We have camps, gym practices and a lot of time slated to work with small groups and individual players," Ketterman said. "Our coaches and our players are excited to roll up our sleeves and get better. We are going to focus on fundamentals and core development."
Cassville has a tremendous amount of talent in its freshman class and several young players with skills that just need to be refined.
"This year was about establishing my system and the girls learning about my expectations," Ketterman said. "If we work hard, good things will come."
