2020 Lady Plainsmen volleyball team largest in years

The Lady Plainsmen volleyball team will head into their first game of the 2020 season Thursday, August 27 after three weeks of practicing.

This year’s Perkins County volleyball team sports 24 members, which Coach Monica Cole says is the largest team the school has had in many years. She thinks this will lead to a positive year for the Lady Plainsmen.

The only new members on the team are the nine freshman new to the high school, and the team only lost one student from last year because she graduated. 

There are four sophomores, seven juniors and four seniors.

This year’s seniors are Danielle Burge, Rylee Huff, Hannah Kempf and Savannah Schmitt.

Cole and Assistant Coach Brooke Lee will be splitting the team into junior varsity and varsity, with eight girls on the varsity team and the remaining 16 on the jayvee team.

Cole said she is feeling confident about the upcoming season, and she feels like the team is getting ready to take the court after three weeks of practicing.

The first game of the season for the varsity Lady Plainsmen will be a triangular against Sutherland and Creek Valley on Aug. 27 at 4:15 p.m. The games will be played at the Perkins County High School.
