2019 William Tennent Girls' Volleyball Preview


Coach:  Brian Bassler 15th season

Assistant coaches: Matt Tomlinson; Katie Jones; Amber Wood

Last year’s record:  SOL 6-12 Overall 8-14

Notable losses:  Jackie Essig (Marywood) and Kristen Liebel

Key returners:  Riley Morgan, Senior OH; Sara Ingham, Senior MH; Chiara Ciccone, Senior Libero

Others to watch:  Grace Marsland, Senior OH; Christina Sienkiewicz, Senior DS; Mackenzie Clee, Junior RS, Sara Cummins, Junior DS; Julia Richard, Sophomore Setter

Strengths/Question Marks: Lots of experience especially defensively. Question mark will be consistency on the offensive side and finding a rhythm.

Outlook:   “This is a close-knit team that has a lot of fun together and has grown up a lot from last year. The offense is still a work in progress but the girls play hard defensively and are starting to click all-around. Consistency will be the key, but if this group stays focused and positive they could give some teams trouble. Chiara Ciccone anchors the defense and will be looking to close in on her 1000th dig.”
