BENTON â€“ Losing six seniors from a state playoff team may seem like a lot to lose going into the next season, but the Benton Lady Panthers volleyball team is not shy on experience.
â€śWe have five seniors this year and they all pretty much played last year, or played some,â€ť Benton Coach Brandy Chumley said. â€śThey know what it takes, and I have a feeling theyâ€™re going to do what it takes to have a good year. Itâ€™s been fun so far.â€ť
BRYANT â€“ What a difference a year makes. After winning the 7A/6A South conference with an undefeated record, the Bryant Lady Hornets volleyball team returns one player with extended varsity experience as Bryant graduated eight seniors last season. This year, the Lady Hornets have no seniors.
â€śWe definitely look different,â€ť Bryant Coach Beth Solomon said. â€śLast year, our entire varsity, other than Abby Staton, were all seniors. This year, we look a little bit different, but weâ€™re still as aggressive. Weâ€™re going to play just as intense.
