High school volleyball: Battles will heat up with region play
Ben Brewer, Deseret News
The last few years some phenomenal individual athletes have highlighted Utah’s prep volleyball scene.
This year, however, the most successful programs may not have a superstar. Instead, depth and chemistry may be the keys to competing for top honors in 2013.
“It will be interesting to see how it all shakes out,” said Lehi head coach Jamie Ingersoll. “I think it is a lot wider this year. There just aren’t these key athletes, but there are a lot of really good players across the board. I think teams are going to have to be more defensive and less focused on one player.”
She said watching preseason tournaments has convinced her the quality of defense will make it difficult for any one superstar player to dominate.
“There were a lot of balls you thought were kills that got (picked) up,” she said. “I think there is going to be a lot of great defense that will allow teams to stay in those long rallies. I’m excited. I think it will be a little different.”
