“If we put it to it, we can do it.” That’s what senior Kendall Koch has to say about busting rivals like Archbishop Murphy down to size under the Red Wolf net.

She and fellow senior Kailyn Campbell look likely to make a big impact for the Cedarcrest varsity volleyball team this fall. Brandon Jones is coaching.

For Koch, it’s a bit nervewracking, realizing that it’s the seniors’ last season together.

“We’re friends off and on the court,” she says. “We have a great team. We got really lucky.”

She expects good matches, and close games, with their Cascade League competition.

Campbell, a year-round Cedarcrest athlete, comes in as the Red Wolves’ outside hitter.

She’s tall, athletic—”I can hit it pretty hard,” she says. Campbell plays the game to stay in shape. It’s a fun experience.

Like Koch, “I love the people on the team,” she says.

Both girls have a goal for this year. The team, they say, must earn due respect.

“Get league recognition at the end,” Koch says.
