You can count on: “We will be more fundamentally sounds and be more experienced on the floor. I believe we will have a high quality leadership on the floor.” — Musick

Needs work: “We will have to fill a lot of shoes in the setting department. We lost our 5-1 setter to graduation last year. My girls have worked hard to grow in that position, and I believe we have. Early on we will have to get our offense on the same page and mesh as a team. We will have a lot of potential, but we’ll have some work to do early on.” — Musick
