Arcanum Volleyball 2021 Season Preview

ARCANUM – The Lady Trojans had a strong program last year and was in the title hunt all season long.

Arcanum is coached Macy O’Dell so you can expect to see a very disciplined and highly competitive team.

O’Dell believes her team strength is the ability to work together as a whole and the positive attitude they bring to the floor.

“Everyone loves everyone and works together well,  it’s our goal to work on our communication so we have complete team unity when we play,” O’Dell stated

Macy believes the WOAC is going to be very strong this year but stopped short of naming any front runner teams.

With 8 returning letter winners, 5 seniors and 6 juniors Look for Arcanum to be in the mix for the first ever Western Ohio Athletic Conference Volleyball Title.
