The 2014 Dorchester High School volleyball team will see its first action of the new season tonight at the Weeping Water triangular.
The Lady Longhorns are looking to forge a culture of winning traditions under a second-year head coach Ty Peteranetz.
Coach Peteranetz is a self-described "transplanted, Colorado-born Husker fan," who moved to Omaha in 2011 after 30 years in Colorado to be the assistant volleyball coach at the College of St. Mary. He missed teaching terribly, so he resigned his position with CSM to be an educator and coach at DHS. He teaches Dorchester's fourth grade.
In 2013, DHS fielded one of the youngest high school volleyball teams in Nebraska. This season, the Lady Longhorns will have the depth to accomplish some great things, with more than 20 girls expected to be competing for starting roles on the squad.
Insiders say the increased numbers of players will definitely bring more success, with young but experienced players like Jacee Weber, Kacey Zoubek and Avery Behrens, all of who helped lead the team last season.
