When you look at the seven main players for the Knoxville Volleyball squad this early season you do not see a lot of seniors. Of the seven that see the bulk of playing time there is only one senior, with four sophomores…and two juniors. However first year Coach Liz Sanders tells KNIA/KRLS Sports that she has been pleasantly surprised at how the younger players and embracing their roles. Sanders thought initially that many of the girls would be timid to be a vocal leader, however she adds that communication is one of the big reasons why the Panthers have jumped out to a 6-2 start on the season. Knoxville was idle this weekend, but get back to action Tuesday night with a road match in Oskaloosa.
