Head coach: Daisha Agho
2008 record: 26-3, 4A state tournament
Conference: 4A Northern Conference
Strength: Playoff experience
Weakness: Graduation of seniors Kelly Arnold, Kayla Schinke and Sarah Fiechtner
Team notes: Agho replaces Mil Santos, who stepped down as head coach back in February after leading Berthoud to within one game of the state semifinals last year. Agho graduated from Thompson Valley High School in 2000 and has a degree from Northern State University. … Berthoud, which won 26 matches a year ago en route to a Northern Conference, district and regional championship, must replace five seniors, including all-state outside hitter Kelly Arnold. Arnold is now playing at the University of Northern Colorado. … Top returners include Kyla Duncan, Morgan Woodruff and Kacey Fagler. … Berthoud is ranked sixth in the preseason Top 10 by “The Denver Post.” … One newcomer to keep an eye on is junior outside hitter Michelle Arnold, Kelly’s younger sister.
Quotable: “We’re in the toughest conference we have in the state. Any team in this conference is the team to beat,” Agho said.
