The Yellow Jackettes flew to the state tournament last season and have a roster loaded with young talent led by two seniors seeking to reach Charleston once again.
Moorefield Volleyball is building a strong program through the dedicated study of fundamentals and working together to create success and will be guided by coach Morgan Hill-See entering her sixth year at the helm.
“The main goal is for us just to be a team and play together, come together. It has been some of the best 14 days of practice I think that I have had coaching here at the high school. They want to get better. They want to learn, so our goal everyday is to improve and get better. To help reach the goal of winning sectionals or going to regionals, whatever that goal is for them. We didn’t really set a team goal. We just want to take it one game at a time and look back at that game and say how can we improve, what can we do to make ourselves better,” Moorefield Coach Morgan Hill-See commented.
Losing four senior leaders in Bethany Smith, Rachel Malcolm, Sumer Flinn and Katlynn Tompkins will take a toll initially, but the chemistry the team has right now has been a strong bond in taking the right steps forward.
“We have a really good mix. We’ve got the outside hitters and we’ve got two setters. We’ve got girls who can serve, we’ve got girls who are straight positive and we’ve got girls who are the pick me up girl. If you’re down, I’m going to pick you up and make you laugh. It’s a great mixture of attitude. It’s really good chemistry,” Coach Hill-See remarked.
