A preview of the area football teams for the 2018 season by Betsy Barnett and John Contreras.
Last week the Indy printed team profiles for the Eads Eagles and the Kit Carson Wildcats. This week, John Contreras introduces the rest of the Southeast Colorado teams!
Eads has nine golfers this year including a number of freshmen and sophomores. However, in the high school golf tournaments, only four can compete at the varsity level. The four golfers then compete for individual honors as well as team placement.
This year the Eads Lady Eagles could be a team to take seriously as they return a solid crop of seniors and have some excellent younger athletes in supporting roles. Second year head coach Chelsea Davis stated, “I am so excited about our group of 16 volleyball player who are out this season. We have a good combination of versatile athletes who are ready and willing to play whatever position assigned. This year, without a doubt, our leadership will come from our hard working and versatile seniors.”
Coach Penny Isenbart has become one of the most iconic coaches in 1A Volleyball as since 2007 she has led the Kit Carson Wildcats to superior volleyball accolades and success. Since 2007, the next year after winning the school’s first-ever state championship in 2006, Isenbart has only had one season that mathematically could be considered a losing season (2008, 12-13). Her overall record in the last decade is 204-73 since the 2006 championship including a state runner-up finish in 2016 and a second state championship in 2017.
