BRLD has new Volleyball Coaches in Co-Head Coaches Allie Tietz and Paige Raasch. Tietz is a Bancroft Native and first time coach.
“I am from Bancroft. I played here actually 5 years ago so I’m right out of college. I teach preschool.”
Tietz and Raasch take over for Rebecca James.
The Wolverines said goodbye to seniors Madison Polenske, Brandi Simonsen, Kariden Briggs, and Zoe Sjuts.
BRLD opens up the season at Tekamah-Herman on Thursday. Tietz says the Tigers are low on numbers, but still figure to be tough.
“We’re excited. A lot our practices revolve around defense. We hope to be good defenders against them, and give them everything we got. I don’t know I know they only have 9 girls coming so I know that’s tough for them, but I know they’ll be competitive still.”
Tietz says consistency is a goal for the team.
She adds the team is excited about 6’1 freshman Megan Beutler.
Some other players that people should see on the floor this season include Audra Nolting, Brooklyn Nolting, Halle Wortman, Aubrey Berg, Kinlee Bacon, Kelsey Larsen, Tyra Bonneau, Caragan Tietz, Alexzi Nottlleman, and Tori Ostrand.
