Lockwood Tiger Volleyball 2020

by Alexis Byrnes

With only eight players on the roster last year, Lockwood’s volleyball team will return seven of those players this season, all with varsity experience.

After losing only one senior, Lockwood will start this season with a group of 17 girls, twice the size of last year, with over half of those girls being freshmen.

Head Coach Jamie Roschevitz will go into her 10th season at Lockwood, assisted by Alexis Byrnes, her third season as a coach. Lockwood’s record was 6-23 last season, which Coach Roschevitz expects to improve this year.

“They are a hard working group of girls. I expect the girls to work hard to become overall well-rounded players,” Roschevitz stated.

Lockwood’s team will return three seniors: Hannah Dunagan (MH), Camryn Foster (RS/OH), and Daphne Moss (OH/RS). These players will be expected to set the tone for the season and to show leadership on and off the court. The juniors that will also contribute to the Lockwood team include Kelyn Holman (S/OH), Katie Schnelle (MH), Hannah Kennon (L), and Haley McElroy (OH). With a strong group of upperclassmen with varsity experience, Lockwood’s coaches are excited to see what the season will bring. A large group of ten freshmen show promise to the future of Lockwood’s volleyball team with their strong athletic abilities as well.

“I anticipate some of them will step up and see some varsity play,” Roschevitz continued.

Lockwood’s team have been working hard on court communication, getting on the floor and finishing at the net. With such a large group of freshmen, Lockwood will have a lot to improve on as the season progresses. However, even with the team being predominantly young, this group is hard-working and always ready to improve their skills. The team shows determination on the court and are looking forward to having a successful season.

“I expect them to compete at a high level, work together, play for each other and never give up.” Roschevitz finished.
Lockwood will travel to Stockton on August 27 to participate in a Volleyball Jamboree, where they will play only Stockton due to COVID-19.
