After finishing a rebuilding year the Lady Cannoneers are looking at another rebuilding year!  This season will only see 2 returning players, Mallory Harter and Jenna Wilson.  Going into 2018 season there are 9 freshmen coming in looking to get this team headed to regionals once again.  Maggie Vazquez and Allison Burrows from Sandy Creek will come in and make an immediate impact on this team as starters.  Kelsey Finster and Tricia VanCamp coming in from Watertown are also expected to be strong additions to this young team.  Nicole O'Connor from Lowville, Alyssa Evans from South Lewis, Savanna Baker from Carthage, Sara Archer from Canton and Grace Gehrke from Belleville will round out the solid list of recruits.  Although there won't be many familiar faces on the floor this year, this is the strongest, largest, group of freshmen coming in during my coaching tenure.  These girls have been putting in a lot of time during the off-season and several have played club volleyball together, so they are ready to get some Cannoneer victories under their belt.  Come out and support the team at the Annual Invitational on Saturday, September 1st at 10:00 a.m.
