This year's volleyball squad has pulled together a team of 4 seniors and 5 returning letter winners. This year North Tama has had a change of coaching staff. Coach Stan Upah has taken over for ex-head coach Molly Clubb. Upah has brought in Holly Aldridge as his assistant coach. Together they put together a winning team, which has been proven so at their tournament this past Saturday.
