‘We control the ball’ - Seahawk girls serve up district win in volleyball

In addition to this back-to-basics approach, Hock says their passing and service receiving is top of the line.

"We control the play, even on free balls we control the offense," Hock said when it comes to receiving serves. "We control the ball better than any school we've competed with — at least on a 1A scale.

"We have a couple of seniors that do that, and that's where I believe we control the game, that's how we've won the last 10 matches."

Two of the four seniors who are captains on the team are Sarah McManus and Logan.

"They were voted on by the team," said Nonnenmann. "As coaches we feel it is good for the team to elect their own leaders — who they feel represent the best leadership and who is the most outspoken and sets the best example.

"That's not to say that the other two seniors are not leaders," Nonnenmann said.

As a matter of fact, Nonnenmann said that Casey Perot is "both physically and emotionally a leader on the court and a huge contributor to how far we have gotten this year and a contributor to how far the remainder of the season will go." And outside hitter Hannah Crawford is also a big contributor.
