T.C. West Returns Talented Roster from Last Year

TRAVERSE CITY — The Traverse City West volleyball team made it to the regional final last season before falling to Grand Blanc in five sets. This year, the Titans are focused on making another deep run.

They return six seniors from that team and this group has been together for years. They lost three players from last year’s team, but they feel like they have the talent to go far.

“Last year in the regional finals, I think we kind of choked a little bit and I think all of us know that,” TC West senior Makenna Ebling said. “We’re looking to push past that and fight for it and teach the younger [girls] to not put too much pressure on yourself but still have fun and win.”

“We really have to focus on taking care of the ball and capitalizing on our serve-receive and our passing. We have a solid offense but if we can’t pass or serve-receive it’s not going to happen,” TC West head coach Emily Baumann said.

Traverse City West won its district tournament last year with wins over Marquette and Traverse City Central.
