Cardinal volleyball coach Mike Turnbull is proud to announce the prospective HCC volleyball roster for the 2015 season. Turnbull recently completed recruiting for the 2015-16 academic year.
The Cardinals returned to post-season play in 2014 by finishing 4th in the MCAC North Division before losing to Central Lakes College in the NJCAA Region 13B Semi-Finals. Turnbull has a hard time not showing how excited he is about the 2015 edition of Cardinal Volleyball. "On paper this looks like a deep, talented roster that should compete for a division title and a return to post-season play." "I realize and I want our players to realize that you don't win matches on paper. We need to work hard in the off season and come into fall camp in shape and ready to compete on a high level every day come August." "Traditionally our division and the MCAC Conference boasts some of the best NJCAA teams in the country and it is never an easy road to the post-season."
The 2015-16 sophomore class will include four starters from last year's team; Josie Greenwood and Khai LaBarge from Hibbing, MN and Emily Hall and Sydney Lough from Floodwood, MN. Kathryn Wojciechowski from Hibbing and CJ Jesperson, a transfer from Mesabi Range who is also from Hibbing, round out the sophomore class.
The freshman class provides a stockpile of talent. Michelle Paulson from Hibbing, Miranda Wickman and Ashley Mossuto from Drummond High School in Wisconsin, Elizabeth Eccles from Superior, WI. Zoe Bystrom and Samantha Wardas from Northwoods High School. Sophia Newman from Nashwauk-Keewatin High School and Alex Cromley from Mesabi East High School rounds out a potentially outstanding group of incoming freshmen.
It may only be March but Coach Turnbull and the Cardinal volleyball team anxiously look forward to the 2015 season. The Cardinals will open practice on August 9th. The regular season will begin at the Spartan Tournament in Fergus Falls, MN on Aug. 22nd. Hibbing will begin MCAC North Division play on August 28th at home against Fond du Lac Tribal and Community College.
