STOCKTON — The Weston Ranch volleyball program has yet to have a winning season, but last year’s effort yielded the most wins in school history and was within a game of breaking even at 13-14 overall, 4-10 in the Valley Oak League.
In this his third season at the helm, Cougars coach Eddie Menzel is looking to blend some new faces with returning seniors Senecia Patten, Adriana Martinez, Jennie Tern, Lauren Malihan and junior Natalia Flores to help fill the hole left by the loss of three-time All-VOL first-team selection Amaya Finley and Nayeli Moreno.
“We are excited about the upcoming season,” Menzel said. “We have a lot of new faces but they work hard and are looking forward to earning their stripes.
“We’re small, but we are a scrappy bunch that likes to compete and I look forward to watching us grow throughout the season.”
Weston Ranch begins its non-league schedule Friday, Aug. 17, on the road at Johansen in Modesto and return to Modesto to begin Valley Oak League play Tuesday, Sept. 4, at Central Catholic.
