What's next for Lady Trappers?

NWC looks for encore after regional title, national appearance

The Northwest College Trapper volleyball program produced a 27-10 record, a regional championship and a national tournament appearance last season. That's nice, but for head coach Flavia Siqueira, that's also part of the past.

“New team, new year,” Siqueira said, one week out from her team's first games. “This team isn't like the team we had last season, but they have the potential to do the same sorts of things. They'll need to improve throughout the season.

Four letterwinners return

Four letterwinners, including three who appeared on the Panthers' roster at last year's state tournament, will step back onto the links for Powell High School. The Panther golfers will be the first team out of the chute when they open the fall sports calendar today (Thursday) with their home golf invitational.

Four Pioneers earn all-state

Jameson, Geiser conclude careers as first-teamers

Four members of the Powell Pioneers American Legion baseball team that successfully defended its Class A state title and finished as runner-up at the Northwest Regional tournament earned all-state honors for their efforts this season.

Trapper women begin year ranked No. 25

Three other Region IX teams also ranked

The Northwest College women's volleyball team will begin the year ranked No. 25 nationally after the NJCAA released its pre-season Division I volleyball poll. The Trappers are coming off a 27-10 season a year ago that culminated in a Region IX North title and an appearance at the national championships.

Northwest College head coach Flavia Siqueira returns eight sophomores from her 2009 team that finished with a 1-2 record at the national tournament.

Despite Northwest's returning core of players and success in the 2009 season, the nation's pollsters predict a challenge in the Trappers' road to a title defense. Longtime Region IX North powerhouse Casper College (32-10 in ‘09) opens the year ranked No. 18. Laramie County (28-9) begins its fall calendar holding the No. 21 ranking in the nation.

Perennial national title contender Western Nebraska (42-4), which plays in the southern division of Region IX, is No. 5 to open the year.

The College of Southern Idaho (32-6) holds the No. 1 ranking to begin college volleyball season. They'll be followed by Missouri State-West Plains (27-9), Salt Lake (29-9), Miami-Dade (32-5) and Western Nebraska. Rounding out the top 10 are Iowa Western (42-6), Blinn (29-4), San Jacinto-Central (32-9), Hillsborough (30-10 and Temple (23-22).
Northwest's lone national tournament victory came against Temple last season.

The next 10 starts with North Idaho (28-5) at No. 11, followed by Frank Phillips (29-13), Eastern Arizona (21-2), Pratt (19-14) and Seminole State (26-15). Nos. 16-20 show Panola (28-9), Seward County (26-11), Casper, Wallace State-Hanceville (34-6) and Florida State-Jacksonville (32-6). The last five spots in the poll are held by Laramie County, Spartanburg Methodist (10-19), Midland (23-14), Yavapai (26-15) and Northwest.

Also receiving votes in the first poll of 2010 were Barton (22-12), Lee (17-13) and Palm Beach State (26-12).

The Northwest College Trappers open the 2010 volleyball season on a challenging note. Northwest College travels to Twin Falls, Idaho, on Aug. 27-28 to participate in the College of Southern Idaho tournament. Southern Idaho and Salt Lake are among the teams slated to appear in that tournament field.

Oh so close
