EVART \u2014 Kirsten Parsons expects to play a key role in her senior season for the Evart volleyball team. The Wildcats have started their season under new coach Krissy Weidenfeller. It\u2019s the third season on the varsity for the 6-foot Parsons, who will continue to be a hitter. Weidenfeller was an assistant last season. \u201cShe knows us,\u201d Parsons said. \u201cShe had a little experience with us last year. I\u2019m confident she\u2019ll be able to play us and figure us out and put us in the right positions.\u201d Most of the players are back from last season. \u201cOur team has been pretty together,\u201d Parsons said. \u201cWe\u2019ve been friends for a long time.\u201d Compared to last season \u201cmy role will be pretty much the same,\u201d she added. \u201cThe seniors last year were in control so I\u2019ll have to step up.\u201d Parsons is looking to be strong at hitting while improving her blocking. \u201cI\u2019ll work on my jumping and timing, it will be great,\u201d she said. Serving has been a challenge for the team in the past but Parsons noted that improving in that area has been an emphasis. Playing well and getting the team\u2019s confidence up will be critical, she indicated.
