The last three volleyball seasons at New Haven High School have been very successful. Three years ago, the volleyball team went to state and they placed fourth in class one. The following year, the team placed second, and last year they placed third. We have placed every top four place you could get in the top four except for first place, and the expectation is to win first this year, twelve years after the last volleyball championship.
The season started off by playing against Borgia, ending in the first loss of the season. So far, we have won every game, not counting the Dig For Life tournament in Cape Girardeau. The players that play for varsity are: Emma Engelbrecht, Kate Ruediger, Lauren Gerlemann, MacKenzie Bauer, McKenzie Overschmidt, Mackenzie Munsinger, Grace Soete, Claire Meyer, and Lydia Pataky. The head coach is Jaime Hoener and the assistant coaches are Sharen Speckhals and Kelsey Anderson.
This week the varsity will play in the Hermann Tournament. The team placed 2nd in pool place last night.
