Weiser high volleyball prepares for season

The Weiser High School gym is full of excitement and action as the Lady Wolverines prepare for their volleyball season. After coming off a successful 2021 season where the Wolverines made it to the third round of the Idaho State Tournament, they are working hard to make another run in the state finals. 
 With eight returning players the Wolverines are looking to capitalize on their experience. 
 Returners include juniors Danica Lockett, Abi Wilkins, Bailey Coleman, and Rylee Roberts, sophomore Paisley Noyer, and seniors Mattie Shirts, Jasi Yraguen, and Paige Johnson.
 The Wolverines are led by some skilled and talented players. Yraguen and Shirts add strength and power as middle blockers.  Both were named to the First Team All-Conference team at the end of the 2021 season.    
 Setter Danica Lockett, a three-year starter for the Wolverines, was also named to the 2021 All-Conference team as an honorable mention. Lockett brings a focus to the team that helps them stay grounded. She is ready to deliver the ball to her attackers. 
 Head Coach Lindsay Grant is looking forward to building on the team’s solid base of returners and seeing what newcomers Kamryn Doty, Madi Wilkins, and Trista Buescher will add to the mix. 
 Staying focused on what is right in front of them will be the goal of the team. Coach Grant says, “she is looking forward to the maturity and experience of this team. A lot of them have played together for a long time. We are hoping to go out there and just get better and compete hard each time we step on the court.”
 The Lady Wolverines are poised to be the sleeper team to take the state by surprise. Looking at the Snake River Valley Conference, Weiser should be returning to the court with the most experience at the varsity level. Capitalizing on that talent should lead to some exciting games and propel the Wolverines to the top of the conference. 
 Weiser will host the Cole Valley Chargers for their opening match on Thursday, August 25. The Frosh/Soph team will take the court at 4:30 with JV 20 minutes after that game. Varsity will start 20 minutes after the completion of the JV game, which should be around 6:30.
