    Lady Knights Head Volleyball Coach David Hibbard is optimistic about the 2017 season, and he expects notable improvements from last year's 15-21 season.

I also believe we can compete to win each of the three varsity tournaments in which we will play and hopefully be in a position to advance come regional tournament time."
