Scott City, Kan. (westernkansasnews.com)–You can tell that the 2019 Scott City Lady Beaver volleyball squad is looking to set the bar higher. Two days in, the Lady Beavers have produced some intense practices. This years team has around 25 players.
Three seniors step in to take the leadership roles, to go along with a junior caption, on a team that could have a solid seven-player rotation. There’s no question that a disappointing finish to a 26-11 2018 season has fueled the Scott City squad, who has seven practices remaining before the season starts.
Shelby Kite begins her third season as the Lady Beaver head coach, as Scott City has advanced to the Class 3A semi-finals of sub-state in each of her first two seasons. The Lady Beavers have had three straight seasons of at least 25 wins. Lauren Robinson and Sarah McCormick return as assistants for the program for a second consecutive year.
Scott City will be tested early on Saturday, August 31, as they will compete in the Hays High Invitational. This is a new tournament on their schedule this year.
