Warrior setter optimistic

Kendra Ray

REMUS — Chippewa Hills has a young volleyball squad this season with players like Kendra Ray being heavily depended upon to give the team unique skills and leadership.

“Kendra, as setter, also needs to be a team leader more so on the court,” Warrior coach Hali Williams said.

“I expect her to take complete charge of the team during play and have a game plan ready with the players around her.”

It’s the second varsity season for Ray, a sophomore.

As a freshman, “it was a good season,” Ray said. “Everyone happens at such a faster pace compared to middle school. From middle school to varsity volleyball, it’s so much faster.”

Chippewa Hills played over the weekend in the Big Rapids Cardinal Invitational.

“We’re getting there,” Ray said.

“We have a lot of improvement to make. We have the talent to do it. With more practice and playing, we’ll be pretty good by the end of season.”

She’s been a setter since the eighth grade.
