WICHITA, Kan.—Girls’ volleyball has been a Collegiate tradition for a long time, and has even secured a state championship. This year with seven seniors on the team, they are looking for another win at state.
The team's record so far is 6-3, and they have had an overall good start.
Vosburgh is in her fourth year on the team and she is anticipating a year with a team comprised of talented upperclassmen.
"We've had a pretty good start (with) a lot of potential with seven seniors on the team,” said Vosburgh. “All the talent's there to win a state championship."
The varsity team is led by Vosburgh, Cora Burgoyne, Maddie Lett, Sophie Beren, Kate Nelson, Wynn Hukle, Tollie Rupe and Addison Root.
"The seniors are a really good group, and freshman Addison Root has really added to the team," said Burgoyne.
The squad has some great leadership from both the seniors and the coaches, Lacy Kerbs and Destiny Clark.
"Each senior has taken the leadership role seriously, and every day they come out with an intensity that is matched by the rest of the team," said junior Jordan Hull.
Hull is on the Junior Varsity team, and looking to perform next year on the Varsity squad.
"The coaches have been really tough on us, but they are making us into the best team we can be," said senior Sophie Beren.
"I think that the team understands how to be a team this year,” said coach Clark. “Last year, [they] depended a lot on Torrie [Rupe] for leadership, and this year, all the seniors have really stepped up."
All in all, the girls seem really excited about the talent they have this year, and are looking to secure a state title.
