Outlaws will fight for another volleyball title

The Lady Outlaws return just three seniors to their squad this season, and the new additions will round out the 11-player roster. The team had to quarantine earlier this season, and the home game schedule for Tuesday August 31 against Crook County has been canceled.

Seniors Greta Davis, Sydney Myhre, and Maddie Pollard are all back for their final season and will bring experience and leadership to the team this year.

Davis returns as a four-year varsity starter, and last year was voted co-MVP of the Oregon West Conference. She is a strong, explosive, accurate hitter and will bring a powerful attack and quickness to the Outlaws’ offense as an outside hitter. Davis will be a huge threat to opponents on offense as well as defense.

Myhre will play as a right-side hitter and also a defensive specialist this year. She has been a varsity player since her freshman year and has worked hard in the off-season to become quicker and stronger. Myhre has incredible court awareness and coaches will look to her for leadership on the floor. She’s got the ability to play any position and will also be a threat to any team the Outlaws play.

Pollard is a three-year varsity player and a defensive specialist. Maddie has worked hard to establish herself as the Lady Outlaws’ anchor in the back row. She reads the ball well and approaches each opportunity with a calm and competitive disposition.

Senior Bre Winter (outside hitter), a transfer from Washington, joints the team this year. She will bring power to the outside hitting position and enthusiasm to the court. Coach Rory Rush sees Winter as a great addition to the program. He is happy to have her.

Other new additions include juniors Hannah Fendall, Skylar Hartford, Anna Landon; and sophomores Gracie Vohs, Gracelyn Myhre, Bailey Robertson, and Mia Monaghan.

“Our seniors will be surrounded by a group of athletic and competitive volleyball players,” said Rush. “They will add depth to our roster and we look forward to seeing great things from them this season.”

Rush added, “We are excited to get started and we are looking to fight for a league title once again this season.”
