HS Volleyball: West Delaware Preview

By Jon Swisher-Sports Director:

The West Delaware Hawks volleyball team returns a wealth of experience and knowledge this season after a class 4A 45-3 runner-up team last year. Five starters are back to lead the way for 20th-year head coach Brett Mather. Coach Mather talks about the highlights from last season and how his team can build on the rich tradition:

The experience the squad has is the key to knowing what to expect from each other, coach Mather says the leadership by the seniors will be irreplaceable:

The Hawks began the 2015 season with their first tournament championship last Saturday in Independence. They defeated Benton Community, Springville, Cedar Falls Valley Lutheran, Independence and Starmont, going 5-0 in matches winning all 10 sets they played.

The WaMaC conference East division and road schedule begins tonight with their first weeknight match in Maquoketa. All the action can be heard here from KMCH Sports live on KMCH and KMCH.com with Sports Director Jon Swisher and Bill Logan.
