Here we go! Things ramp up this week as the volleyball and football teams join soccer with real games against real opponents!
Volleyball faces DeAnza and Butte tomorrow at Goto/Goldenberg Court in their season opener. Coach Vera Nelson’s Wolverines features ten new players, including prized freshman hitter Jen Simon from Roseville HS. Nelson will look to the 6-1 Simon for the big hits that 2012 All-NorCal Julia Dorsey—“Death From Above”—provided last season. (By the way, Dorsey is starting her junior year at Denver’s Metro St. University. Visit their website to see how #11 is doing.)
Nelson welcomes back sophs Haley Biles, Brittany Campbell, Erin Ellner and Macauley. All four were key ingredients in Sierra’s playoff run to the state Elite Eight and regional semifinal win over arch-rival American River College. Macauley was All-Big 8 as a freshman and has all-state potential this year. As Madi goes, so go the Wolverines.
Tomorrow’s first serve is 4:00pm. We’ll see you at The GoGo!
We’ll preview Saturday’s Sierra/Sac City football game, and the season ahead, this Friday.
