Volleyball is changing a few things up with coach Bridget Van Ee including new coaching staff and moving her to head coach.

Coach Van Ee is taking over after being the volleyball assistant coach or many years.

“I really enjoy the new coaches and how they try to improve our skills,” junior Ali Cervantes said.

Coach Fogel had been at Winnetonka for 15 years, but he has recently taken another job. Now the girls are getting used to having three new coaches.

“My coaches are really good even though they just started; they coach like they have been doing it for a long time,” sophomore Abbi Weis said.

Even though coach Kaitlin Jewett is the freshman coach, she never fails to help others on the junior varsity and varsity teams.

“Coach Jewett always lets me know what I am doing wrong and how I can fix it to make myself better during games and practices,” Cervantes says.

Practices are very important to the coaches and the players. They try to get as many touches on the ball and mistakes fixed as they can each day.

“Hitting and defensive drills are my favorite because both of those are an important factor to win games,” Majors said.

With the season just starting up, the Lady Griffins plan on making it a successful season for their new coach.
