2017-18 Dolgeville Volleyball Preview: Seeking 600
Dolgeville’s Allen closing in on her 600th career coaching victory
DOLGEVILLE — Heading into her 41st season as head coach, Dolgeville’s Barb Allen was just 10 wins away from a career total of 600.
With the Blue Devils off to a 3-2 start, Allen now needs just seven victories to reach the milestone.
Dolgeville returns several key contibutors from last season include seniors Bobbie Lee Hall (outside hitter), Lauren George (setter), Frankie Jenison (middle blocker) and Hanna Chorlton (middle blocker), as well as junior setter Kinsey Randall.
Juniors Laeken Fox, Samantha Hoke, Paige Crum and Olivia Davies are new to the Dolgeville varsity roster this season, along with sophomores Emma Bilinski, Breanna Potts and Jazzlyn Grassel. Rounding out the roster is exchange student Sarah Thomkova.
“We need to improve on our serving and being more consistent,” Allen said.
Dolgeville lost Section III Class C and CSC first-team all-star Raquel Borst to graduation, as well as Mercedes Rumrill, who was a first-team CSC all-star to graduation.
The Blue Devils also lost Rachael Gross and Kacey Daley, who were honorable-mention CSC selections.
Borst is competing at Mohawk Valley Community College, while Rumrill is playing for Utica College.
Dolgeville is slated to host Frankfort-Schuyler today at 7 p.m.
