Fall preview 2001: Girls’ Volleyball

With a small but spirited team of 10 upperclassmen on the court for the Wolverines this year, varsity volleyball Coach Maggie Shane is optimistic about the upcoming season.The 2000 season was a difficult one for TTHS, as they struggled to find team cohesion and more importantly – confidence.This year, senior veterans Heather Shove, Diedre Panziera and Amy Eisenberg will be working together to present their opponents with an aggressive and quick offensive set-up and formidable blocks. The ladies played in the Lowry Tournament last weekend, finishing fourth in their pool and second in their afternoon bracket.”The girls played really well and were definitely more in tune with what was going on on the court than they have been in the past,” said Shane. “We don’t really have a power offense, but we are a lot more cohesive than in the past.”Truckee split games with Lowry and Spring Creek at the Lowry invite; two traditionally strong teams in Northern 3A play.”I think we can beat the tough teams if we work hard,” added Shane.Working hard is exactly what Shane and her team have been doing for the last two weeks, running timed miles and holding twice-a-day practices to get in shape for the season.”We have good skills, but the girls just need to get stronger,” said Shane.In addition to transitioning new players to varsity level ball, Shane and her team have been working on blocking and a new defense that may just be the key to a successful Wolverine season.The Dayton Tournament on Sept. 7 and 8 will be TNT’s first opportunity to gauge their post season chances this year when they meet up with Manogue, Dayton, Lowry and Spring Creek.Girls’ volleyball scheduleFri.
