Starmount volleyball begins preseason play

Ashley Johnson, Starmount’s only senior this upcoming season, bumps the ball during a scrimmage against Mount Airy and North Wilkes Tuesday night.

Starmount girl’s volleyball played in a three-way scrimmage against Mount Airy and North Wilkesboro Tuesday night.

Last year, the then-defending champions had an early exit in the second round of the 1A tournament. This year, they only have one senior on the team.

Despite that, coach believes they’ll have a strong season.

“This year, it’s a younger group, and even last year was a challenge,” Coach Jon Symons said. “I’m looking forward to making the state playoffs.”

With only one senior, it serves as an opportunity for the juniors to really step up and be leaders as well. Their season will begin in August.
