Having lost five starters to graduation, the Roy-Hart volleyball squad faces a bit of a rebuilding task heading into the Niagara-Orleans League season.

Senior Maddie Ciemny and sophomore Marissa Scott head Roy-Hart’s veteran contingent which also includes seniors Jamie Seib, Alexis Connolly, Jamie Coons, Kaley Sharping and Lauryn Krieger along with junior Samantha Capen and sophomore Allie Dent.

“It’s a classic rebuild,” said Coach Bill Holahan. “We’re looking to be competitive and be better by the end of the season.”

The Lady Rams key graduation losses included first team N-O All-League honoree Aspen Moore, second team selection Paige Dent and Honorable Mention picks Alyssa Kubas, Kristina Burdick and Ella Brown.

Roy-Hart will open the N-O season at home on Wednesday against Albion.
