With a heavily-laden team of seniors, the Cadott girls volleyball squad looks to provide some tough competition this year.

“Our returning varsity starters are hungry for wins and for big wins over teams we haven’t beat in years,” said coach James Bremness. “Their hunger is contagious and the newcomers are catching that fire, as well.”

Bremness says everyone is on the same page, when it comes to the competitive and work ethic standard it’s going to take to be one of the best teams in the conference.

Leading the Hornets this year, are top returning players junior Makenna Barone, senior Jada Kowalczyk, sophomore Lauryn Goettl and sophomore Elly Eiler. Newcomers to the varsity level expected to make an impact, are seniors Haylee Rowe, Lexxie Rowe and Hailey Wellner, and sophomore Olivia Goodman.

“I think we will be more competitive this season, compared to previous seasons,” said Bremness.

With a highly competitive West Cloverbelt Conference, Bremness says Cadott cannot take a night off, and has to bring the best every time, to be in discussion for a conference championship.

The goal this season, is to finish in the top three, with the Hornets wanting to improve on last year’s record of 16-25. Cadott has a promising chance to finish in the top three in the conference, an improvement from their sixth place finish last year.

“The intensity in our practices had been on a level I haven’t seen at Cadott, in my previous seasons,” said Bremness. “Their drive and determination, I believe, will turn some heads this season, and take the program forward in many ways.”
