The College of the Rockies girls are back on home court to host an exhibition tournament this weekend.
The Avs will split into two teams and take on the Ambrose University Lions, Lethbridge College Kodiaks and Olds College Broncos.
Head Coach John Swanson says only four players are returning from last year with eleven new faces joining the roster.
“The four returning players have been fantastic in showing the ladies the ropes with school, the community and the volleyball court.”
Swanson says this is the largest turnover of players he has seen in his time at COTR.
“There’s challenges because they’re not sure what our coaching staff expectations are.” says Swanson. “They’re not used to our gym, it’s still a new gym for them coming in.”
The COTR ladies finished last season in fourth place with 10 wins and 14 losses.
Both split-squad teams will start their weekend against the Lions on Friday.
The regular season kicks off October 20th against the Camosun Chargers.
