Head coach: Earl Otis

Assistant coaches: Ashley Jaakola

Returning starters: Talyayah Martineau, Naomi Ammesmaki, Alyza Savage, Cheyenne Olson, Namida Reynolds

New faces to watch: Leilani Fonoti, Bailey Robinson, Solai Mohr, Joslyn Mitchell

Team strengths: The team will have strong hitting and there are two returning setters to set up the offense, according to head coach Earl Otis.

Biggest challenge: Otis said the team is very young with four eighth-graders and no seniors on the squad.

Coach’s assessment: “We’re very young — we have two returning setters, but all of our better players are very young,” Otis said. “We’re basically working on the fundamentals with some of these younger players.”
