The Station Camp Lady Bison continued their preseason action last Saturday, participating in the annual Lady Panthers volleyball play day.
The six-hour day included teams from Sumner, Robertson and Macon County.
Station Camp is coming off an impressive 25-8 season, including an 11-3 record in District 9AAA. The Lady Bison ended their season in Mt. Juliet against eventual district champion Portland in the second round.
During the day, Station Camp played Greenbrier, Macon County, Portland and East Robertson ending their day at 4-0.
"We like seeing all these different level of teams," Station Camp coach Molly Yarborough said on why she keeps bringing her team back to the Portland play day. "During the season, you will see good teams and developing teams, for us to get them all together is great because you want your team playing the same no matter what."
The Lady Bison have kept busy this offseason with practice and multiple play days. One thing is certain for Yarborough, she has liked what her team has shown so far.
"This is kind of a new team," she said. "We have three returning varsity starters. We have really high expectations this year. As long as we play together, play some defense, we have some height. Front row hitting we have that, we just need to make sure we have good passes to go along with it."
Varsity returning starters include, McKenna Killeen, Aria DeJonge and Maddie Lyons.
Station Camp will join a new district this season following TSSAA reclassification - District 10AAA, where they will have three common opponents in Hendersonville, Gallatin, and Beech HS. The Lady Bison will add Hunters Lane and McGavock to their district schedule.
"We are expecting each team to be good this year," Yarborough said. "We're familiar with some of the teams and hopefully that will help us this season."
The Lady Bison will compete in one more play day om Aug. 12 in Brentwood at the Brentwood Blast Off. Station Camp will open its 2017 season at home against Friendship Christian on Aug. 14.
