Knights coach Arthur says: "The strength of the team is definitely at the net. We have girls who can terminate the ball. We have a lot of depth there, a lot of options. We’re looking to speed our offense up. Lommen is a good setter. We’re inexperienced in the back row. The girls will have to adjust to the fast pace of the varsity game.’’

That gives us some options. I think we'll have better defense at the net, better blocking, than we had the last two seasons. Demott will anchor our back-row defense.''.
