Coach Lauren Love knows there is only so much to see when a team is facing itself.
She will not have to wait any longer to see the Starkville volleyball girls in action as the 2014 campaign kick offs later today.
"There is only so much you can evaluate during practice," Love said. "When you are on the court in competition, (that's) when you really see the work, so we are real excited for the season to start."
As with any sport, the summer practices and the beginning of the season is spent getting accustomed to teammates and how the chemistry translates into game action. The thing is this current group of Lady Yellowjackets can almost bypass that step. With eight seniors and a large majority of returning veterans, SHS's dynamic is already established and the team is poised for an impressive season.
"With our seniors, I am just waiting to see how they do together," Love said. "They have been playing together for a while, so am excited to see what they can do. One of our goals is to start and finish strong, so I'm looking forward to seeing how they come together for that goal as well."
