New Haven is coming off their third straight 20 win season after a disappointing two set loss to Valley Catholic in last year's district title match, 25-18, 25-21. While the Lady Rocks have a large void to fill after graduating three time All-State senior Kelsey Pecaut, who lead the team in service points, attempts, aces, kills, and digs, Head Coach Jaime Hoener expressed little concern.

"We still have Rachel Steinhoff and Emily Kallmeyer back to handle serve receive and attacking wise I think we are more balanced," Honer said.  New Haven will have a strong presence at the net with 6'1'' Olivia Fleer and 5'11'' Taylor Covington, who started as a sophomore last year, smashing 161 kills.  (Second behind Pecaut's 164)
