2017 Season Preview
The 2017 Rebel volleyball team returns a great deal of experience from last season’s inaugural Circle City Conference championship team. All-County and All-Conference libero Hannah Irmer returns to anchor the defense as a three-year starter and All-Conference performer Grace Hegwood looks to build upon her tremendous 2016 campaign at outside hitter.
Three other three-year starters return for the Rebels in the senior setting duo of Lauren Fey and Amelia Banister and middle hitter Betsy Crosley (Jr.). Also returning with Crosley in the middle are 2016 letterwinners Elizabeth Eads (Jr.) and Maggie Schoening (Jr.). Rightside hitter Abby Johnson (Soph.) returns after making major contributions as a freshman last season. She will join Hegwood and newcomer Amber Linton (Soph.) to provide offensive firepower. Behind them, the defense also has experience in the form of Irmer, Grace Lawrie (Sr.), and Taylor Kehoe (Jr.).
The Rebels embark upon their 2017 season in a new 4A sectional with Ben Davis, Decatur Central, Perry Meridian, Pike and Southport and the regular season schedule is again loaded with some of the best teams the state has to offer. It should make for an exciting year of Roncalli volleyball!
