With six seniors returning, Chewelah looks to once again mix up the NE 2B League…
Chewelah’s Lady Cougars will begin their 2019 volleyball campaign with a veteran team and a new coach. The Cougars return six seasoned seniors to a team that is determined to improve on last year’s 13-win season with Coach Kaya Landers taking the helm.
When Coach Shirley Baker became Chewelah athletic director, the head volleyball coach position came open and Landers applied for the job.
“This was a late summer decision,” explained Landers. “My life has lots of moving parts, and I had to put them all in order before I could make the decision to apply for the position. Life is still going to be challenging for me. For example, I had classes at The Shed in the morning at 5, 6, 7 and 9 this week before I went to 10:30 a.m. practice.
