Returning all but one starter, Roy-Hart is taking aim at making a strong run for the Niagara-Orleans League volleyball title which has been held by Akron for the last five years.

The Lady Rams large returning group includes seniors Marissa Scott, Allie Dent, Ava Brigham and Kailyn Livergood along with juniors Alex Stern, Samantha Albright, Samantha McIntyre, Makenna Elsenheimer, Juliana Buscarino and Lilian Stanczyk.

Scott, Dent and Albright earned second team N-O All-League honors last season and Stern was an Honorable Mention selection.

“We lost only one starter so we have good experience back. Our goal is to win the league,” said Coach Doug Meyer whose Lady Rams went 6-4 in N-O action last season.

Roy-Hart will visit Akron in the second N-O match on September 14 and then host the Lady Tigers on October 5.
