2014 Palo Verde Boys Volleyball Capsule


Head coach: Phil Clarke, eighth season

2013 record: 19-4 (10-0 Northwest, first)

Returning lettermen (starters): Five (three)

Top players: S Andrew Weston (Sr.), LIB Ryan Nielson (Sr.), OH Brigham Clawson (Sr.)

Outlook: After running the table in the Northwest League last year, the Panthers lost half of their starting lineup to graduation.

“This is a very motivated and determined group,” Clarke said. “We have a good core group of returners, and the new guys are going to need to step up and fill the holes left by the group that graduated.”
