CL Volleyball: A Work in Progress

The CL Hawks started their new season with a new coach and a lot of new players as they suffered two losses in the three team round robin to Clemens and Liberty Hill.

“It is all about coming to the game prepared and we have a lot of things to work on,” Head Coach Kimberley Paisley stated. “We are only as strong as our weakest link.”

Coach Paisley could be seen exhorting throughout each game as the Hawks had way too many unforced errors causing both losses.

“We had too many missed serves and we killed ourselves in both games,” Coach Paisley continued. “Our offense needs to be cleaned up.”

“There are some things we need to work through and we are not perfect….I’m looking for a solid eight players and I just don’t know who that core group is yet.”

This will certainly be a learning experience as this season commences.

Canyon Lake at one time during the Liberty Hill game had a Freshman, three Sophomores, and two Juniors playing.

“We were too quiet and not communicating is killing us…we just need to talk it up,” Coach Paisley finished. “The more you talk the faster your feet move…we need to find a fluid eight players.”

“There is a lot of stuff we need to do.”

Coach Paisley will be going into this time of year searching for that winning combination before district starts up.

“We did a better job of executing in the second game and we will be working on a lot of our game before the Wimberley Tournament…not to punish them, but to get them better.”

This will certainly be an interesting season as Canyon Lake will start concentrating on improving their game….Coach Paisley will make sure of that.
