Last year’s season ended with an Osage school season record for wins. With a 22-7-2 record for the 2017 season, our Lady Indians have set the bar high. Led by seniors Rose Colonius, Samantha Funderburk, Kenzi King and Maddie Henley, our Lady Indians battled to place 3rd in our conference and made it to the second round of districts with a win over Eldon before getting eliminated by the state champion team from Helias.
Returning for the 2018 season are seniors Carson Wood, Karli Kempf and Cecilia Verslues. Carson Wood has led the Lady Indians in kills for three straight years and will be looking for her 4th this season. Carson, along with returning sophomore, Sara Wolf, will both be stepping into new roles this year as setters. Karli Kempf will be retuning for her 4th varsity season as a right side hitter and co-captain and senior Cecilia Verslues will take on a new role as outside hitter. New players to the varsity team this year are Caitlyne Vaughn, Emily Steen, Carley Hambly, Emily Dulle, Grace Otto and Allison Weatherspoon. I am looking for another strong showing from the Indians this year as we battle our way through a tough conference and schedule.
