“She’s in­ex­pe­ri­enced on the var­sity level, but she’s very ath­letic and hope­fully will bring us some power once we work with her this month,” Bates said of Chesnut.

Like Chesnut, sopho­more Vic­to­ria Col­lum might play more than one role for the Lady Wild­cats.

“She’s a solid player,” Bates said. “This year is go­ing to be about get­ting her ex­pe­ri­ence to re­ally make a dif­fer­ence for next year. I may throw her in to set. I may throw her in to hit. I may throw her in the mid­dle. She’s just got to be ver­sa­tile for me this year.”

Round­ing out the Lady Wild­cat ros­ter is Cedar Bluff trans­fer Colbi Whit­lock. Bates said Whit­lock will fill the roles Au­drey Richard­son had last year.

“She’s (Whit­lock) come in and fit well with us,” Bates said. “She’s play­ing some right side and out­side.”

Sand Rock com­petes in Class 2A, Area 12 with Collinsville and Gas­ton. The Lady Wild­cats open the 2017 sea­son Sept. 2 in a tour­na­ment at Lin­coln.

“Right now, we don’t have any­thing that is go­ing to make you say ‘wow’ when you watch us, but we’re scrappy and we’re solid,” Bates said. “We’re go­ing to get the ball back to the other team, but we want to bring it back with more power. We’re go­ing to be work­ing on that this month.”
