Panthers take the court
Fall sports teams began practice this week, and the Mt. Pleasant volleyball team was back in the gym last night for their second practice of the season with first-year coach Jeff Schulz.
“The first thing we’re focusing on is fundamentals,” Schulz said. “We are working on being very precise and not letting the ball hit the ground. Once we have that mastered, then we will be focusing on attacking.”
Schulz comes to Mt. Pleasant from Mediapolis, where he was volunteer assistant volleyball coach.
“These (Mt. Pleasant) girls have been excellent so far to work with — they want to learn,” Schulz said.
