The Lady Blue Devils volleyball team knows they have a lot of talent coming back this year, and they definitely expect to win a lot of games in the ICC.  The only question is, can they get the job done in the playoffs?

“Obviously most team’s goals are to go undefeated, but we also want to have a lot of fun together, go further in the playoffs this year, and just have a ton of fun as a team. I think we have been working very hard for it,” said senior captain Kaelynn Behrens.

Last year B-A finished with a solid record of 15 wins and 7 losses, but suffered a defeat to Tussey Mountain in the first round of the district playoffs.

The team had two weeks of conditioning in which they had two hours of practice, twice a day throughout the week.  Also, they practice two hours a day every day after school.

B-A is looking for big things this year after losing only two starters, right side Alexis Parson, and Middle Hitter Kamryn Mercer, who were lost to graduation.  The Lady Devils have six returning letter winners from last year, including Bella Kies, Sydney Lechner, Sakeria Haralson, Karlie Feathers, Kaelynn Behrens, and Jesstlyn Heaton.

They opened the season Tuesday with a big win over Glendale.
