Coming off of a ninth place finish last year at nationals, the 2013 Kirkwood Community College volleyball team started a fresh season on Aug. 23 as the  eight ranked team in the nation.

Since then the team has been red hot with a 10-4 starting record and are undefeated in conference play.

Entering her 12th season as a head coach and her ninth season as  head coach at Kirkwood, Jill Williams is trying for her third   National Junior College Athletic Association National Tournament appearance.

Eight of the thirteen players on the volleyball team are freshmen this year. Alicen Wintermote, second year student and returning team member, stressed the importance of communication with the new team.  

"We train very hard all off-season and pre season to maintain our body and stay in shape in hope of success in the upcoming season," said second year student Cali Beyer.

"I am very impressed with all the incoming freshmen this year," said Wintermote. She added, "It makes the transition into a fresh season just that much easier having smart and mature players coming and joining our team."

    Already halfway into their season the team has nearly a month and a half left to play. There are six home matches before the close of regular season play.
