MARY GROSJEAN CAN RELATE. THE FORMER LEE VOLLEYBALL STAR (2008-11) ENTERS YEAR TWO AS THE HEAD COACH AND WAS A MEMBER OF THE LAST GANDER SQUAD TO MAKE THE POSTSEASON NINE YEARS AGO.
"What I've tried to implement the last year is a mindset," she said. "We are learning to believe in ourselves and that we are capable of winning. It's a matter of getting our heads right." Prior to being named the head coach, there had been some tremendous turnover inside the Lee program. That seems to be over with Grosjean leading the huddle.
"There just wasn't any consistency," she said. "I've let our players know that I'm not going anywhere and I'm here for them. We are a group of people working together. I'm going to coach them, and they are going to give great effort. We have become so much tighter over the past year through relationship building and developing positive mental strategies."
