Kendrick

Coach — Molly Olson (first year)

Last year’s record — 19-3, 10-0 in league

Returning letterwinners — Drew Stacy, jr., outside hitter; Hannah Tweit, jr., setter; Erin Morgan, jr., middle blocker.

Outlook — After a fourth-place finish at State last season, the Tigers welcome rookie coach Olson.

Although Kendrick is returning several key players who have experienced success in the past, Olson will not have any seniors this season. She is looking to implement a new offensive system for the Tigers as they attempt to stay at the top of the conference.

Salmon River

Coach — Paula Tucker (sixth year)

Last year’s record — 16-1, 10-0 in league

Returning letterwinners — Lotus Harper, jr., setter; Sophie Branstetter, jr., setter; Jordyn Pottenger, jr., middle blocker; Avery Jones, soph., middle blocker; Alethea Chapman, soph., libero.

Outlook — Despite an undefeated regular season and a second-place finish at the state tournament last year, the Savages will have to make due with a lighter roster for 2020.

Currently having only six players, Tucker still is optimistic of Salmon River’s group as they move forward in the Long Pin Conference.

“The players we have love volleyball and are willing to work hard,” Tucker said.
