2012 Las Vegas Girls Volleyball Capsule


Head coach: Sue Thurman, 13th season

2011 record: 21-7 (14-0 Northeast)

Returning starters: Two

Top players: OH Marissa Lair (Sr.), RS Matti Ventling (Jr.), MB Charlai Francis (Jr.), OH Shaleah Butler (Jr.)

Outlook: Lair, a first-team all-league selection, is one of only two returning starters for the Wildcats, who advanced to the Sunrise Region title match last year.

The Wildcats are coming off an undefeated season in league play, but welcome 2011 state champion Green Valley and 2009 state champion Silverado to the Northeast League this year.

“With new conference opponents, we look to continue our focus on basic skills and conditioning to remain competitive,” Thurman said.
