The Gardner Edgerton High School fall sports season begins Aug. 30 with the Lady Blazers volleyball team at the metro slam tournament at St. James Academy.
Second-year coach Erica Book has been busy preparing a young, but very talented team for the season opener.
“We are in a rebuilding process and will be real young this season,” said Book. “Summer workouts have gone well, and it prepared this team for a very tough Eastern Kansas League schedule.”
Leading the way will be juniors Allie Weber and Rachel Knorr and sophomore Jesse Heniss. Weber is the team’s only returning starter.
Freshman Maddy Lindon will also see plenty of varsity time.
