Lady Falcon Volleyball Opens Season
The 2013 Lady Falcon Volleyball Team will take the court on Thursday afternoon for their first regular season game.
They will travel to Trinity High School to take on the Bulldogs at 6:30 pm. For the first time in over 25 years the Lady Falcons will be operating and taking instructions from a new head coach. Longtime coach Kathy Ferguson retired and
coach Dirk Schmiedel has taken on that position. Coach Dirk has plenty of experience coaching volleyball and knows
how to get the most out of his players. The Lady Falcons have struggled somewhat the past few seasons, but they plan
to make some noise this season and make a run for a top spot in the Metro Conference. This team is very athletic but
not very tall. What they lack in height they make up for in quickness and in their leaping ability. This is a veteran team
with four Seniors and eight Juniors. They will be led by Senior Captain Kara Shutt and Junior Captain Emma Strouth.
Kara Shutt says “ Coach Dirk has taught us so much and we are just having fun.” When the Lady Falcons take the court
on Thursday there will be new attitude around this team. This team believes they can win and they will have fun doing it.
