A year ago at this time, the Ozark volleyball program was still in the process of preparing to play its inaugural season.
This off-season, second-year coach Kelsey Webb hasn't had to spend much time on basics. Instead, she has been working with the Lady Hillbillies on more match-specific situations.
"It's been completely different (this off-season)," Webb said. "Last year, we were still learning the game, learning skills, the very, very basics.
"This year, we're taking a step forward and we're kind of not necessarily perfecting those basic skills, but we're getting a lot better to where we can go over more specific things that can happen in a match or just other things that we don't have to work on the basic individual skills for the game, so that's been really, really exciting."
