The White Pine High School volleyball team hasn’t lost a game yet this season. They have high expectations with their experienced team. But with so many juniors and seniors usually in the rotation, it can be hard for head coach Kenna Almberg to see how some of her younger talent can do in game time situations.

The Laycats got a glimpse of the good things to come for the program with blowout home wins over Mountain View on Sept. 25. The Ladycats won their first match 25-9 and their second 25-21, 25-7.

Almberg said that she was impressed with what she saw from Jenna Gubler, Brittney Kingston and senior Julianna Hall.

“I though they did a good jo bthe minute they hit the court. I was very pleased with their performances,” Almberg said.

The Ladycats should see some tougher competition in their homecoming match against Meadows. The Ladycats defeated the Mustangs in the division title match last year so they know they will come ready to play.

“We are looking forward to having the big homecoming crowd backing us. Now we just have to stay focused this week in practice since all the girls want to think about homecoming.

The varsity girls will play before the junior varsity to allow them time to see the homecoming football game. The first varsity game will start at 3 p.m. with junior varsity scheduled for 5 p.m.
