NORTH ROBINSON — Colonel Crawford hopes to captitalize on most of its team returning for the 2016 volleyball season on the heels of last year’s 8-15 record.

The Eagles did take a big hit when Jada Klingenberger walked the stage to graduation year. Klingenberger was first-team Northern 10 Conference and first-team District 6 last season. She inished her career with more than 1,000 career digs.

However, head coach Amber Christy, now in her sixth season as the Eagles volleyball coach remains confident because she still has plenty of experience is on her side.

Back for the fall are sophomores Izzie Stalter and Danielle Horsley, juniors Caitlin Koschnick, Karlie Kurtzman, Kayle Zizzo and Jenna Siegel. Also back and providing the much needed senior leadership for the team are Abby Teglovic, Claire Ehmann and Samantha Mutchler. Siegel and Mutchler will by the key hitters in the Eagle offense this season.

“We have great team unity and senior leadership,” said Christy.

In a league that lost a lot of seniors last year, the Eagles hope to stay consistent and finish every game strong in order to compete for a top spot.

“Buckeye Central has the most returning experience. I feel that every team with have to bring consistency on the upper level to compete for the league (championship),” continued Christy.
