Linesville Lions
Coach (season, record): Tim Schleicher (6th season, 38-47)
2010 overall record: 18-3
2010 region record (place): 13-1 (co-champion)
2010 playoff results: Lost in the District 10 Class A semifinals.
Top players lost: Jessica Uzarski, Amanda Sharpless
Top returning players: Amber Litwiler, Marissa Johnson, Carly Bone, Challen Litwiler, Kimberly Litwin
Assistant coaches: Debbie Johnson, Dale Flickenger
Outlook: Linesville made school history in 2010 with the program’s first league title by sharing the Region 2 championship with Maplewood. The Lions lost a few standouts to graduation in Jessica Uzarski and Amanda Sharpless and will be a young team this fall. Amber Litwiler is back after a terrific junior year, which she was named to the all-district team, the all-region first team and the Region 2 co-Player of the Year. She was also voted to the all-state team by the Pennsylvania Volleyball Coaches Association. Also returning for Linesville are all-region selections Marissa Johnson (senior), Challen Litwiler (sophomore) and Kimberly Litwin (sophomore). Senior Carly Bone contributed last year and could play a big role on this year’s team as well. Region 2 is a brutal region with all four teams in the District 10 Class A semifinals from Region 2. Linesville will need some underclassmen to fill in the varsity rotation this fall and could be a contender for the D-10 title once again.
