Reynolds Raiders
Coach (season, record): Carla Hughes (5th season, 27-41)
2011 overall record: 5-13
2011 region record (place): 3-11 (seventh)
2011 playoff results: Did not qualify for the District 10 Class A playoffs.
Top players lost: Staci Sommerfeld, Caitlin Zoccola, Mikee McGarvey, Kelsey Connolly, Kayla Gregg
Top returning players: Kelly Asinger, Kayla Hughes, Autumn Babcock, Trish Liszka
Assistant coach: Aaron Hughes
Outlook: Reynolds will need to reload this season after graduating nine seniors. The Raiders will be young and need to replace Staci Sommerfeld, Caitlin Zoccola, Mikee McGarvey, Kelsey Connolly and Kayla Gregg. Each graduate contributed last season, including Sommerfeld, an all-region first-team selection at middle hitter. Reynolds has some experience back in Kelly Asinger, Kayla Hughes, Autumn Babcock and Trish Liszka. Ansinger is a solid setter, while Hughes and Liszka are hitters. Babcock will anchor the defense as a libero. The Raiders struggled to get some momentum going last fall and have the chance to start over this year. Reynolds is in a tough region with several Class A powerhouses and will need its younger players to step up to stay competitive.

Reynolds Raiders
Coach (season, record): Carla Hughes (4th season, 22-28)
2010 overall record: 13-8
2010 region record (place): 10-4 (second)
2010 playoff results: Lost in District 10 Class A pool play.
Top players lost: Kristen McDonald, Rachel Carpec
Top returning players: Staci Sommerfeld, Kaitlin Zoccola, Mikee McGarvey
Assistant coach: Julie Mowry
Outlook: Reynolds qualified for the playoffs in 2010 but couldn’t get out of pool play. The Raiders will look to take the next step this fall with nine returning seniors. Middle hitter Staci Sommerfeld, a first-team all-region selection, is back along with second-team libero Kaitlin Zoccola and setter Mikee McGarvey. Reynolds will have to replace two standouts in Kristen McDonald and Rachel Carpec. Coach Carla Hughes is looking for girls who are stepping into new roles to adjust and for the Raiders to improve their blocking and serving in camp. Reynolds is in a tough region with powerhouses like Sharpsville, but if Reynolds stays healthy, they will be back in the postseason.
