Anger (of others) is their best weapon

The King’s Fork girls volleyball team is ready to do some serious off-ticking this season.

&uot;We’re going to be annoying other teams, because we’re going to be sending the ball right back over to them,&uot; said coach Sarah Whitfield, whose girls will be going for their first-ever win in the sophomore season. &uot;We’re going to win this year. I just know it. I have confidence in my team. We’ve got better ball control. The girls have played together in a lot of other sports, so they have good chemistry.&uot;

Seniors Rachel Bailor and Brynn Willig will try to lead their team to victory (it’s unclear as of yet whether the school will be able to field its first-ever boys team), starting Aug. 23 at home against Grafton.

&uot;I like being a senior,&uot; said Bailor, who played ball at Lakeland before switching schools before last year. &uot;I want to win a game this year. The team has come together really well. They try hard and they have a lot of heart.&uot;

Willig has already seen improvements from last season.

&uot;Last year, we were a new team,&uot; she said. &uot;We’ve learned to work together a lot more. Our passing has gotten better.&uot;
