Jump Serve: Farrell

Farrell Steelers
Coach (season): Tina Slater (4th season)
2010 overall record: 10-8
2010 region record (place): 7-7 (fourth)
2010 playoff results: Lost to Cochranton in a District 10 play-in match.
Top players lost: None
Top returning players: Tyra Robinson, Lashelle Platteborze, Johntae Scott
Assistant coach: Marsha Fields
Outlook: Farrrell finished above .500 last fall and earned a play-in match against Cochranton. The Steelers are looking to take things a step further this season with no seniors gone from last year’s team. Johntae Scott (libero) and Tyra Robinson (outside hitter) are back after being named to the all-region first team to lead the way. Farrell plays in a tough region, including Sharpsville and getting to the playoffs won’t be easy. The key will be replacing a few transfers and developing some of the younger players as well.
