If you count last season, the Warner volleyball team is on a remarkable 47 match win streak. 2012's crew went down as one of the best teams in history after refusing to lose a single set en route to a 34-0 record. So far, it looks like this year's group is ready to carry that torch.
"It's been a lot of fun. Just having good athletes and kids who want to play and they love to be in the gym. It's been a fun ride," Jung said.
Many know the Monarchs for their height. Their roster includes five girls 5'11" or taller. For junior setter Ashley Rozell, it's like being a kid in a candy store.
"It makes you feel pretty good, when they get a kill of your hit. That's for sure," Rozell said.
The tallest of the bunch is 6'2" Miranda Ristau, a Northern State basketball recruit. She says the team's towers can be intimidating to other schools.
"I know our height probably plays a big factor in that because we have four starters that are over six foot, which is crazy," Ristau said.
While Warner is used to claiming every set, they did finally drop one recently in a matchup with last year's runner up Arlington.
"It was different. Going up against Arlington that day we knew we had a tough matchup but we just went in knowing that we had to play our best. When we lost, we were just, that's ok, we'll go out and get the whole game then," Ristau said.
And that's the attitude moving forward. With several tough matches ahead, including a battle with O'Gorman, the team plans on gaining more experience that will help them reach this year's goals.
"Our hopes are very high this year. We're hoping to do the same thing we did last year and that's all we can ask for," Rozell said
