Volleyball Season Preview

I am super excited for this year’s season.  This is my first year coaching Volleyball in Hay Springs and I am seeing talent where I didn’t expect it.  This will be a season of change for the Lady Hawks.  We graduated several starters last year, so you will be seeing a revamped roster and system change.  I am extremely optimistic that the returnees and a promising transfer senior can develop into a competitive team.

A season of change will be the theme this year.  The girls are not only adjusting to a new coach but new roles as well.  I have setters who can hit and hitters who can set.  If we can capitalize on this versatility you will see some surprising plays, making for exciting volleyball for the fans.

While the Lady Hawks will miss last year’s seniors, the sophomores are showing a lot of promise on the court and will help fill the void.  Leadership will be coming from returning starters Beth Roberts and Michaela Metcalf along with new student Kodee Muhr, a senior from Harrisburg.   Kodee will be a great asset to the set/hit combo of Roberts and Metcalf.   Another plus point will be junior Stephanie Tlustos who can also step in as a setter or hitter.

The flexibility on our team is also one of the challenges we face.  We will need to utilize the talent wisely and efficiently.  The girls are also going to be working hard on back row play.  In a league as strong as Panhandle Conference, defense will be the name of the game.  We certainly have the ability to be a factor on the defensive end.  At the same time, we are young and we will take some hits; but our goal is to work towards being a competitive team.

Football Season Preview

The Hawks football team should have an exciting year.  We are returning a great bunch of kids that have a lot of experience.  With most everyone knowing the system it will let practices flow smoother and give us more time to fine tune both our offense and defense.

This summer Joe Planansky, Jason Funk, Jason Alcorn, and I put on a football camp for any player from 6th grade on up.  I felt this was an excellent experience for the kids.  We taught a lot of football fundamentals and techniques in three days.  During the camp we stressed on how to be a better person and student by getting a good education, showing integrity, putting forth effort, having a good attitude, and to be disciplined.

This year I am pleased to have coach Alcorn back as a full time assistant.  His knowledge and intensity is a huge benefit to the team.   Coach Jason Funk will be new to the program this year also.  He is a CSC alum, and a hall of famer.  He will help us when he has free time.  Issac and Nick will also be back to help us out again.  It is nice to have great coaches and volunteers. They are invaluable to the hawks.

See you this fall! Coach Turman
