Official practice began on Monday. Aug 1 for fall sports in Ohio and after two days of traditional practice, Coach Katrina Obenshain and her Peebles Lady Indians volleyball squad took a different, but very effective approach, for the remainder of the week.
Coach Obenshain called on two former Peebles volleyball standouts, sisters Annie and Katie McFarland, to put together three-day camp for her girls, running from 9 a.m.- noon each day.
The camp was a tough challenge for what will be a young Lady Indians team, with numerous drills and physical activities designed not only for conditioning but to improve the various fundamentals of volleyball.
“I like doing this camp because I see the great potential that Peebles volleyball has,” said Katie McFarland on the final day of the camp.  “There are some girls here that are extremely athletic and they have the chance to be a really good volleyball team.”
Fans of the Lady Indians can see their girls in action on Friday night at North Adams in the Southern Hills Athletic Conference Preview.  Peebles will open the evening’s action, battling Whiteoak in a 5 p.m. start.
