Warriors’ Kurstyn Fate giving team leadership at libero

Kurstyn Fate

REMUS — Chippewa Hills volleyball coach has a new coach with Hali Williams this season but has some familiar faces with players like senior Kurstyn Fate.

It’s her fourth year of volleyball, and second on the variety.

“Last year was kind of rough,” Fate recalled. “We were all trying to find playing time.”

She’s a libero this season as she was last year.

“I’m there to pass the ball and be the best passer,” Fate said. “We’re doing really good. It’s better than some of us had thought. Compared to last year, we’re impressed with how the season has gone so far.”

She will also be a server.

“You have to find out what kind of serve you like to do and perfect that one,” Fate said. “It’s been good. I have a good float serve.”

Fate is also in softball and cheerleading.

The Warriors will be at the St. Louis Invitational on Saturday and at Reed City on Tuesday in Central State Activities Association Gold Division action.

“I think we’re going to do good this year,” Fate said. “We’ll have a good run.”
