The Knoxville Volleyball program is looking for more improvement after last season’s turnaround 17-20 year. Coach Eric Fee has had to fast track a lot of the offensive and defensive sets because of an early season tournament that was added to the schedule. The Panthers will go to the Newton Invitational on Tuesday and that says Fee has made it difficult on the newer players to get the system down. Fee says Seniors Chambray Daugherty and Brooke Chrisman are helping the younger players and three other seniors who will be called upon to help out the varsity program, Jamie Rinehart, Emily Belloma, and Tyra Washington. Also, Junior Erica Fee and Sophomore Meredith Cunningham have varsity experience. The Panthers hope to pick up where they left off at last season, ending 2011 winning eight of their final 12 games.
