Varsity volleyball stays strong

The Hamilton High School varsity volleyball team is off to a winning start under new coach Ms. Abby Ekkens. The team has started with a 13-11-8 record, but the team wants to keep improving it.

“Our record doesn’t reflect our potential,” senior Alex LaFleur said. Due to some lost players, injury and other things, the team isn’t quite to the spot they want to be. They’ve had some tough losses this season.

Ekkens also think that the starting record should be better and has made some coaching changes to help out.

“I would love to have the team finish high in the conference for the conference tournament,” she said.

This past Saturday the team competed at the Byron Center tournament. This is a big event because in a couple of weeks, the conference tournament at Rogers takes place. At the Byron Center tournament, the team placed second in the silver bracket.

The girls are staying optimistic about the conclusion of the season, with still almost a month to go in their season. They are looking to finish with a better record in the regular seasons so that they can be seeded higher in the conference tournament.

With new coach, and physical education teacher, Abby Ekkens, the girls look to bounce back for the duration of the season. Right out of college at CMU, Coach Ekkens taught at Ovid-elsie for two years and preschool in Holland for one year. She coached four years total at Rockford, Kenowa Hills and Ovid-elsie.
