Bulldogs hit the court with another coach
Perhaps the third time will be the charm.
Rachel Webb takes the helm for the Bulldogs this year, becoming the school's third volleyball coach in as many years.
McLouth finished 2-22 last season and 4-26 the year before.
Webb, who played college volleyball at Jacksonville State in Alabama, will guide the Bulldogs into a schedule that includes Jackson Heights, a team that finished fourth last season in the state tournament at Busch-Gross Coliseum in Hays.
The Cobras won the Delaware Valley League with a spotless 10-0 record. Overall, the squad finished the season at 30-11.
JHHS should be back at or near the top of the DVL this season. The Cobras lost just two players to graduation, while six seniors and seven juniors are on the squad this year.
The Bulldogs also lost only two players to graduation -- Melissa Hoffsett and Amanda Brown.
Returning this year for their senior seasons are Emma Prochaska, Katie Lewis, Kathryn Keyes and Nicole Hoffhines.
Juniors on this year's squad are Leigh Anna Thompson, Emily Nitzsche, Ashley Alloway and BriAnn Smith.
The Bulldogs opened the season Tuesday at home against Wathena and Pleasant Ridge.
McLouth will then head to Winchester next Tuesday for a triangular against Troy and Jefferson County North.
Look in next week's edition for results of those matches.
