Cambridge Springs
Coach: John Turner (2nd season, 15-4)
2013 overall record: 15-4
2013 region record: 11-3 (second)
2013 playoff results: Defeated Lakeview in the District 10 Class A quarterfinals and West Middlesex in the semifinals. Cambridge Springs then lost to Cochranton in the D-10 championship.
Top players lost: Paige Wolfrom, Mackenzie Turner, Jennae Shinsky, Karissa Welker
Top returning players: MacKayla Kurt, Amanda White
Outlook: Cambridge Springs put together an impressive run under first-year coach John Turner last season. The Blue Devils battled their way to the District 10 Class A championship match before falling to eventual state runner-up Cochranton. Cambridge Springs will have some rebuilding to do after losing Paige Wolfrom, Mackenzie Turner, Jennae Shinsky and Karissa Welker to graduation. Wolfrom and Welker were powerful outside hitters and Shinsky was a middle=hitter. Turner is another big loss as a setter and leader of the team. Wolfrom, Turner and Shinksky were voted to the all-region first team. Cambridge Springs returns junior MacKayla Kurt, who had a breakout sophomore season, as well as all-region second-team libero Amanda White. The Blue Devils finished in the top 10 at the Fort LeBoeuf team camp recently and they seem to have rebounded from big graduation losses. Cambridge Springs is in a brutal region, once again, with Cochranton and Maplewood, but the loaded schedule could help the Blue Devils get ready for the playoffs. If Cambridge Springs can get help from new players and fill in its gaps left by graduation, the Blue Devils could be a dangerous team this season.
