EVART – Ally Theunick ventures into her junior sports season at Evart, anxious to continue to have more team successes and continue to do well individually.

Theunick and her teammates are focusing on  having a strong volleyball season.

“Things went well but at the end, they got better than they were at the beginning of the season,” Theunick said of the 2021 campaign. “This season is looking promising. We have good team chemistry and that will be good for us.

Theunick is a middle hitter and also plays back row. Blocking is a strength.

“The key is timing,” she said. “I’m able to hit it in the right spot.”

Theunick is also a strong passer for the Wildcats.

“The key is to have the right platform on our forearms,” Theunick said.

Evart hopes to be a force in the Highland Conference.

“It’s looking pretty good,” Theunick said. “We have a lot of talent.”

Digging and setting are among the team strengths.

Theunick also plays basketball and softball. She was a catcher for the softball team which was state runners-up. She played a lot in travel softball during the summer and hopes it pays off when the Wildcats begin practices in March.

Theunick expects Lake City to be among the toughest opponents for Evart during the league season. Lake City was runner-up in the recent Reed City Invitational.

Evart will be at Roscommon on Thursday.
