Scouting report: With a new coach and no returning starters from last year's team, which featured eight seniors, Atholton is turning over a new leaf in 2013. Luckily, Moy has 20 years of coaching experience, and a talented senior class. Mandl (95.5 percent, 11 aces) is an excellent server, while Cheng saw varsity experience at the setter position last season. Two freshmen — Hope Kelly and Samantha Miller — were talented and club experienced enough to crack the varsity roster.
"We are rebuilding for a very bright present and future," Moy said.
