Looking to keep the momentum from last year’s second place finish Medina boasts a large contingent of returnees with which to challenge for Niagara-Orleans League volleyball honors this season.

Junior Emily Kams, who earned second team N-O All-League honors, and junior Molley Gross, who received All-League honorable mention, head that veteran group which also includes seniors Abigail Maines, Meg O’Keefe, Liz Newman, Cassie Sargent and Abi Smith along with juniors Lexie Sargent and Carley Schultz, sophomore Alyssa Beyer and freshman Jene Brown.

“We’re excited,” said Coach Tim Lincoln whose Mustangs went 8-4 in the league and 13-6 overall last season. “We’ve got plenty of kids with experience and they played in the summer league so we’re looking for them to come into their own and have a good season.”

The Mustangs are scheduled to open the season with non league matches at Byron-Bergen Tuesday and at Kendall Friday before beginning N-O competition at two-time defending champion Albion on September 9.
