Seniors finally get chance at state

(Continued)

“Jenna Knepp has been a starter for me for four years and she is a tremendous floor leader,” DeCoursey said. “Obviously our offense goes through her and she does an excellent job delivering to our hitters. Hania Sisco has also been in the rotation since her freshman year as an outside or right side hitter and Hania has grown every year as an outside player. She has really stepped up this year. She has elevated her game in the postseason and has had some really nice games for us.

“Tracy Graber is my middle is the one senior to go through this program where we see the most improvement from where she was as a freshman to where she is now is absolutely amazing. She’s put in the time and effort and has worked extremely hard, especially coming into her senior year and just like Hania, has really stepped up her play in the postseason. This year we’ve had Allison Hoover in a different role than what she had been in the past. She’s been playing right side defense there and I feel she is extremely comfortable there and she’s had an excellent year on that side. She has done a great job setting up hitters when Jenna has to take the first pass. She has good hands and we found a perfect role for her this year.”

The chemistry Barr-Reeve seniors and DeCoursey talk about comes from hours and hours of practice and plenty of match experience that makes the plays feel so smooth and the rhythmic play starts with the ball placement of Knepp to hitters like Sisco, Graber and junior Tiara Kenney. That perfect ball placement was on full display Saturday night in the semistate championship match when she had 53 assists and Sisco capitalized with 24 kills, which led the Vikings.
