David Beans/Specialto the Times-Review
If there’s one thing the Al-varado Lady Indians can takefrom last season’s 12-21 finishand 1-9 District 8-3A campaign,it’s that it’s not how you start, buthow you finish.That adage is used a lot to de-scribe a turnaround season. Thesame is true for Alvarado, justnot in a good sense.“I was flabbergasted, to tellyou the truth,” head coach JillBarkey said. “Before districtplay, we had a winning record fora time. That hadn’t happenedsince I’d been there.“But when district started, we just lost our consistency andstarted missing hits. We’d neverexperienced that kind of suc-cess.”Barkey returns several playersfrom that team to try again.Barkey said her biggest retun-ing threat is junior Amber Cha-tham, who she calls a “power hit-ter.”Along with Chatham, theLady Indians will return fourother starters from last year’steam.Seniors Kristen Mann, TaraSloan and Amanda Thomas areback, along with junior BriannaPenner.Barkey said one of the moreexciting aspects of this year’steam will be the infusion of a tal-ented core of younger playersfeaturing sophomore Shelby Fra-zier.“We’ll have quite a few new-comers this year, so it’ll be inter-esting to see how it goes,” shesaid. “This little sophomoregroup is pretty talented.”Barkey said her team has a lotto be excited about, and mentionedshe has continued to see increasinginterest during the summer in thevolleyball program.“With the exception of Shelby,” she said. “All haveplayed together for three years,so there’s this good team dy-namic already.“They’ve done a lot of stuff already which involves playingcamp and summer league.”The last few years have seen aresurgence in the Alvarado boys’athletic departments with thefootball team soaring to the stateplayoffs last year and the basket-ball team making the postseasonfor the first time in nine years.The Lady Indians’ programs;however, have continued tostruggle.Barkey said she wants volley-ball to change that.“With the work we did in theoffseason, and with the strategieswe’ve implemented, that’s goingto play a huge role when we playsome of these tougher teams,”she said. “That Robinson tourna-ment is going to be tough but I’mexcited to see that put into effect.Alvarado is in the same dis-trict as perennial power Kenne-dale and Barkey said it’s up tothe Lady Indians to make theirmark.“This year, we’re preparedbetter,” she said. “When we firststarted in this district, it felt likewe could always count on beat-ing Hillsboro and Venus.“When that didn’t happen lastyear, we would kind of freak out.We need to learn to not do that inthat situation.“With all these newcomers onvarsity, I’m interested to see howthey handle it.”
