As far as volleyball goes, Littleton is expected to be stronger
than it has been in years.
Last year, Littleton finished its season with a third-place
finish in its district playoffs.
Margaret Whalen returns as head coach in her 14th year with the
Lions. With her return seven players to her varsity roster,
including Laura Whalen.
Whalen is a senior this season and returns to the outside hitter
position. She was an all-conference selection her sophomore and
junior seasons. In addition, Whalen has verbally committed to
playing the libero position at Texas State next year.
Back as the Lions’ starting libero is senior Colleen McAnallan.
Senior Sarah Henning is back as a defensive specialist. The middle
gets to benefit from juniors Sydney Fitchett and Marilyn Drennan
returning to hit. Senior Sydney Kramcha is back to add power to the
right side, while outside hitter and defensive specialist Erin Cox
is back for her junior year.
Coach Whalen said a handful of newcomers could also have a say
on the season, including sophomores Annika Hacker and Danielle
Duni, both at setter, as well as freshman outside hitter Natasha
Habert. The entire group is playing a cohesive style thusfar and is
expected to compete with the Continental League’s strong teams,
“The team brings experience and youth as a good mix to this
year’s roster,” Whalen said. “We will be very competitive in the
league this year with one of the strongest [Littleton] teams in
four or five years.”
The coach expects Ponderosa and Highlands Ranch to provide some
top competition in the league this season.
