DHS' V-Ball Coach Ty Praises Efforts Of Lady Longhorns
Even though the DHS volleyball team fell a bit short of a winning season this fall, Dorchester’s head coach has a lot of praise to go around.
The Lady Longhorns' season came to an end earlier this week with a loss to Class D-2 No. 3 Meridian in the opening match of Subdistrict D2-2 play.
Overall team growth and outstanding play from players like Jacee Weber, Bailey Velder, Kacey Zoubek, Jessica Kalkwarf and Avery Behrens was the reason Coach Ty Peteranetz felt good about DHS' 2014 campaign. Peteranetz told the Friend Sentinel that even with an 8-21 record, he was very proud of how hard the girls worked to improve.
Peteranetz said: “They worked so hard in practice, and by the end of the season that was translating beautifully to the court. I’m always sad when the season comes to an end, but maybe more so this year than ever before."
He added: "What’s most exciting is that this is just a foundation for what these girls can do for years to come. The girls that have, so far, been here with me as the head coach have established the expectation that we’ll work to get better. This season established us as a team whose end of the year looks nothing like the beginning. We’re going to continue to work right until the last match.
"These girls are awesome!"
