Longtime teammates friends hope to lead Canyon to state title By David Rupkalvis Sports Editor Brooke Engel and Tiffany Shedrock have spent most of their lives playing volleyball together They began as young children moved on to middle school and now take the court as seniors at Canyon High School Both have had successful careers have played in state tournaments and have won their playing days with the Cougarettes they have one mountain left to climb They want to win a state champi onship Engel is the main offensive threat for Canyon and leads the team in kills and blocks By leading the Cougarettes in kills in almost every game Engel has become one of the most feared volleyball players in the state Compared to her team mate Shedrock plays almost in obscurity but she is equal ly important to the Cou garettes In fact for every kill Engel accumulates the odds are that Shedrock passed her the ball The relationship between a setter and an outside hitter is probably the most important on a volleyball team It takes hours and hours of practice for the two cogs to become comfortable with each other Each hitter likes the pass in a different position and each setter has a unique style that must be adjusted to Ifs a combination of a lot of Engel said Practice helps so With Engel and Shedrock the connection needed for greatness was accomplished many years ago The two first became teammates when they were 7years old and since that time Shedrock has been setting up Engel To determine where to set the ball and who to set the ball to Shedrock must watch and listen at all times As soon as a ball is hit across the net her teammates pass it to her Shedrock then has to listen as teammates say what the opposing team is doing has to watch the defense set f Upland then lias to decide where to pass the ball That all happens in just seconds but Shedrock says its no big deal Ive been playing for a long Shedrock said After a while you just have to get Once the pass is made Engel has to then time her approach and leap perfectly so she can hit the ball in a way so that first its not blocked and then gets to the ground forakffl You have to have a lot of Engel said You have to really try to hit someone in the Watching a volleyball match from the stands is much dif ferent than on the court On the court the play ers are always talking flash ing signs and working togeth er to make a cohesive unit that can win The constant action is what makes both Engel and She drock love the game Its a lot of fun to Engel said Theres a whole lot going on around After startmg slowly this sea son the Cougarettes have gelled and clinched a berth in the state tournament last week That accomplished one team goal but there is still one more left CANYON Page 6A Senior Brooke
