Despite graduation losses, WBM/GCB girls poised for another winning season
After graduating key performers from their 2012 volleyball team that went 29-5 overall and came within one match of qualifying for the state tournament, one might think the West Bend-Mallard/GC-B Wolverines will be rebuilding this fall.
But don’t say that to Wolverine first-year head coach Brandi Akridge and her squad, who feel they have the ingredients for another outstanding season.
Akridge, a former Wolverine athlete, takes over the reins of the program, which graduated six seniors from a squad that went 4-1 and tied for the Corn Belt Conference title last year.
“We lost quite a few big hitters from last year, but the girls who came back are stepping it up and competing for playing time this year,” Akridge said. “Hopefully we can find a place for everybody.”
