After an abrupt start and end to the West Central Area Knights volleyball season in 2020 thanks to COVID-19, third-year coach Missy Foslien is ready for some normalcy in 2021. That starts with improvement upon the Knights’ 5-8 record from a year ago.

“We want to improve upon our record this year. We are gaining confidence and strength and I feel like we could be conference contenders,” Foslien said. “We want to grow as a team, work hard, enjoy playing and focus on playing our best volleyball each day.”

The Knights return several key players from a year ago, including seniors Elizabeth Rustan, Halle Foslien, and Kaitlyn Hansen.

Full story in the Aug. 25 Grant County Herald.

The Knights open the 2021 season at Brandon-Evansville Friday, Aug. 27, in Evansville, and will open the home season Tuesday, Aug. 31 against Rothsay.
