What’s in store for the 2011 Muskies volleyball team? Nothing but the best! Coach Rhoten and the team are ready to be the MAC champs, fly through the season and give it all they’ve got!
“I predict we’ll be surprising a lot of the teams this year. We have some really good female athletes!” Coach Rhoten explains. She’s striving for the best and won’t take anything but positivity. They’ve worked really hard in the off season with summer clinics and camps. Now they’re preparing themselves for the season!
“We can be good when we want to be.” Explains Kaylea Rusch, sophomore team, 15. “We will need to be prepared to play our toughest volleyball when we play Bettendorf or Pleasant Valley, they will defiantly be the toughest competition we will have all season. To prepare for this season we have done many summer clinics and weight lifted quite a lot.”
“Normal practice for us would be warm-ups and stretches and working drills. We sometimes scrimmage each other but usually just work on fundamentals. Meredith Andersen and Emily Clemens are really good leaders on the team, they will always keep us focused on the game and show good leadership qualities.” Explain Kaylea Rusch. “My teammates and I get along very well; we are all friends so I think that it makes our team an even stronger team because we get along with each other.”
“I have been playing volleyball for three years now.” Explains Emilee Meyer, freshman team, 14. “ I think that our team will be good this year, we can be very tough competition we are all focused and are prepared to play. Northscott and Bettendorf are the toughest teams we will face this year I think if we are prepared to play we have a chance of winning.”
“Normal practices for the freshman team would be warm-ups, stretching and scrimmage. My team and I get along well, some of us are closer than other but we all work together on the court.” Explains Emilee Meyer.
“We need to quicken up on the offense and be more consistent. There’s always room for improvement, but it’s exciting for every won!” Rhoten exclaims. The team works really well together on and off the court, She explains that it’s really good for them to bond with team dinners, and such! “ I think the girls motivate each other more than anything. They encourage each other to work harder, and get some wins!” says Rhoten.
