2017 Season Outlook:

After ending the 2016 season at 30-12 and becoming the Regional Champions for the first time in school history, the Lady Cannoneers are looking to rebuild after losing 5 starters. Xanara Ruiz and Mariah Corbett are the only 2 returning players from last year's squad. Vanessa Vallance was injured last year but was at every practice and game and is now cleared to play.  Vanessa and Mariah will be joined by Kiley Ardison from Beaver River to lead the team in defense.  Freshmen Courtney Boliver from Beaver River and Mallory Harter from Fulton will fill up the setting and right side positions.  Allison Miller from South Lewis will join Xanara Ruiz on the outside.  Hali Stogsdill from Lowville, Josie Wood from South Lewis, and Cassie Branagan from Lowville will round out the team in the middle positions.  

Although height and experience will not be to our advantage, this young team is willing to work hard to have yet another successful volleyball season at Jefferson.  Come on out and support the team at their Home Invitational Tournament on September 2nd at 10:00.
