It’s still business as usual; Girls Volleyball isn’t worried about rebuilding

“I still haven’t decided on my starting lineup yet,” he said. “A lot of times with young teams that have talent, it can get very exciting. They’re fun to watch as the kids start to experience some things for the first time. They will have success for the first time, and emotionally it’s very exciting. It usually spills over to the sidelines and the fans.”

So come on out to the Southington gym this fall. The Lady Knights are young but expectations remain high. With new looks, new faces, a strong serving attack, and a host of hungry players, Heitz expects to put on a good show.

In other words, it’s business as usual.

“We don’t think about rebuilding,” he said. “We have a lot of new faces, but we’re always talking about ‘team.’ Our chemistry is going to be a key to our success, so we’ll be working on that a lot at practice. We have different girls in different grades. We have a lot of different personalities, but they’re working hard. From what I’ve seen, they are hungry. They want to establish their own legacy.”
