Volleyball Preview 2020: Union County
Union County’s Elite 8 run in 2019 made history for such a young program. Where does it go from here?
Head Coach: Anna Chapman, 1st Season
2019 Record: 15-20; State Elite 8; Region Runner-Up; #8 State Ranking
Union County made school history with its most wins (15), first Elite 8 trip, and best finish in area, as well as first time being ranked.
Key Departures: Adelia Pyle
Key Returning Players: Haley Noe, Morgan Fussell, Emma Whicker, Saylor Noe, Molly Kay West, Riley Allison
The Lady Panthers move on from five seniors that are now out of the program. That’s a huge hit. Especially since they also lost five the season prior to that. There are some holdover pieces that will no doubt we stronger with the experience they’ve had.
Strengths & Areas of Focus
Strengths: Momentum off an historic run in 2019. Now…will the girls use that to move forward?
Focusing On: Filling the shoes of Adelia Pyle. That has to be a conversation or thought. She was the undisputed leader in a lot of ways last year for Union.
