The West Delaware Volleyball team will open up varsity tournament play Saturday morning at the second annual Independence Invitational. Nineteenth-year head coach Brett Mather talks about the off-season as they get ready for the volleyball season to officially get underway:
High expectations loom for the players that return from the squad that went 37-6 and was a state qualifier. The Hawks only loss 2 seniors and have a bevy of varsity experience coming back. Coach Mather knows a lot of work has to be done for this team to reach their ultimate goals:
The tourney starts at 9am Saturday morning in Independence, besides the Hawks and Mustangs, Starmont, Springville, Oelwein, Central Elkader, Benton Community and Valley Lutheran will be involved.
