The Bobcats are looking forward to their first ever competitive spring season—a change due to COVID-related activity. “The change in competitive season has given us the opportunity to concentrate on preparation and training through the entire fall semester,” said Deann Newton, Head Coach. “Our top returning hitters are Brooke Sereda (Outside Hitter) and Seytia Hill (Middle Blocker), both from Weeki Wachee High School,” said Newton. The 2021 Bobcat team includes a large freshman class of nine players who have added major strength and power to our team.
