Jump Serve: Union City

Union City Bears
Coach (season): Sherri Miller (6th season)
2010 overall record: 4-10
2010 region record (place): 4-10 (tied for sixth)
2010 playoff results: Did not qualify for the District 10 playoffs.
Top player lost: MacKenzie Gilson
Top returning players: Halle Hinkle, Amber Bacon
Assistant coach: Nancy Zielinski
Outlook: Union City’s biggest concern in camp will be developing a new libero with the graduation of all-region selection MacKenzie Gilson. The Bears play in one of the top Class A regions in the state and it won’t be easy to rebuild in. Setter Halle Hinkle and middle hitter Amber Bacon are back to lead the way, while Nikki Adams and Julia Davis are up-and-coming underclassmen that could have an impact on the varsity level this fall. Union City will need to develop its defense with a new libero this fall and play consistently on offense in order to hang with powerhouses Maplewood, Cochranton, Linesville and Saegertown.
