Volleyball Preview 2021: White County
2020 was a historic season for the Lady Warriors, who notched a program record 24 wins on the way to their second straight Sweet 16 appearance (they made the Elite 8 in 2019), and were ranked a program-best #6 in the state. The roster churns with some solid seniors who graduated, but there are plenty of others waiting for their shot to show what they can do.
Head Coach: Shannon Smith, 4th Season
2020 Record: 24-9; Sweet 16; Region Runner-Up; #6 State Ranking
Key Departures: Dasha Cannon, Jenna Ash, Shelby Spain, Macy Boggs
Key Returning Players: Linsey Burke, Rusty Dye, Claire Beckman
With Dasha Cannon and Jenna Ash both gone after being long-time leaders, it’s time for others to step up. Linsey Burke and Rusty Dye showed out last year, and look for them to lead the way in 2021.
