Boasting plenty of experience and depth, Lyndonville will begin tuning up for the up coming Genesee Region League volleyball season by hosting Wilson in a non league match at 6:30 p.m. Thursday.

The senior trio of Gracie Johnson, Brynn Howell and Karlee Rounds head the Lady Tigers veteran lineup which also includes juniors Lorelei Dillenbeck, Haley Shaffer, Mallory Robinson, Brianna Smith, Kylie Reisman along with sophomore Ashlee Stephens and freshman Addison Dillenbeck.

“We’ve got great athletes and great leadership,” said Coach Kaitlyn Draper. “We’re looking for a real good season. I think this group really has what it takes.”

The Lady Tigers will also visit Roy-Hart on Friday and Medina on September 7, both at 6:30 p.m.; before opening the G-R season at Wheatland-Chili on September 9.
