At right side hitter Mary Mayo (Mechanicsburg HS). Tanae Dixon (Springfield HS) will play middle hitter/blocker. Power to the outside hitting positions will see Katelyn Partlow (Northwestern HS), Bailey Mounts (Kenton Ridge HS) and Alexis Risner (Springfield HS). Alexis will also see some time at the right side.

Kaitlyn Schloss (Greeneview HS) will be our libero. Coach McInturff has three strong defensive specialists--Destanee Oliver (Emmanual Christian), Kai Crowe (Springfield HS) and Katelynn McDowell (Beavercreek HS).

Each player brings a long list of solid credentials, awards and recognitions to the team. Coach McInturff stated, "I look forward to coaching this extremely talented group of enthusiastic young ladies. I know we are going to be very competitive, and we will have fantastic season."
