Coming off a season that saw the Dinos go 1-12 regionally, 6-14 overall, the Carbon High volleyball team looks to turn over a new leaf in 2017. With coach Julia Shettell entering her third year with the the team, and first as head coach, her mission is to help shape the team into a winning squad. As Shettell put it, “The goal for the girls, this year, is to change Carbon volleyball and pave a winning path for the future seasons of volleyball.” With a clean slate and a relatively young group of girls, Shettell will look to learn from the past season as she molds the roster for this year.
“We had a rough season last year…[and] are looking to change that,” Shettell said. She describes her team as one with, “a pretty young line-up for varsity.” Shettell also noted, “we have great senior leadership on our team who have stepped up to lead this team.” With three games under their belt, the Dinos have already gotten off to a good start, and plan on building off that from game-to-game.
“Our team goal is to ‘elevate.’ Elevate in everything that we do, on and off the court. We want to have more wins than losses this year, and [eventually] make it to state,” Shettell said. With only five seniors and six juniors, the 29-deep roster will all grow together, which will help them develop a winning attitude.
With all of this drive and optimism combined, the fall of 2017 should be an exciting time to go and support the Carbon High volleyball team. Shettell shared her enthusiasm, when explaining what fans can expect, “We have amazing girls that are fun to watch because they have high energy and have fun while playing.”
The next home game for the Dinos will be on September 7, when they play hosts to the Maesar Prep Lions. The game starts at 6:30 p.m.
