    Coach: Josh Padilla
    Coach’s record: first year
    Key returnees:
    Michelle Tennant, junior outside hitter
    Mahogani Gant, sophomore outside hitter
    Sydney Moon, junior setter
    Brittany Bosarge, junior defensive specialist
    Newcomers to watch:

    Team Outlook: STRENGTHS — Under a new regime, the Lady Pioneers have focused on strengthening their physical conditioning and mental toughness for the upcoming season.
    WEAKNESSES —  With juniors and sophomores dotting its lineup, Leavenworth will lack varsity experience within its ranks. Thus, depth will be a test throughout the year.
    Coach says: “I believe we are going to surprise a lot of teams in our conference. This is definitely not the same Pioneers the Sunflower League saw last season. Ball control and control of game tempo have been a large part of our focus for the offseason. In addition, the girls have worked very hard in improving their physical attributes and volleyball IQ; all of which translates into increased levels of performance on the volleyball court.”
