It’s a tradition for New Holstein volleyball to hire within. It is this trend that has made the Huskies a formidable program and the torch is handed off to another veteran NH coach. Kim Olson makes the jump from JV-1 coach to head varsity coach after Ben Zoelle stepped down last fall. Once again, the Huskies should be among the contenders in the conference.
The 2019 Husky volleyball preview:


NEW HOLSTEIN HUSKIES VOLLEYBALL
Head Coach: Kim Olson (1st season)
2018 Record: 33-10 overall; 6-1 conference (2nd place); 2nd at conference tournament
State Tournament History: The 1987 Husky team is the lone New Holstein team to reach state. The state tournament took place at UW-Oshkosh. The Huskies, coached by Mary Langenfeld, had a 3-2 record in Class B.

Looking back at 2018:
A senior dominated team led by First Team All-Eastern Wisconsin Conference hitter Olivia Olson, daughter of coach Kim Olson. Olivia is now playing at Central Missouri State University. Middle hitter Lauren Hess was voted Second Team All-EWC while senior hitters Karli Schmitz and Olivia Fox joined libero player Shaelyn Feuerstein as honorable mention.

A look ahead at 2019: Feuerstein heads six returning letter winners for NH in what really is a rebuilding campaign for Kim Olson. Joining her are defensive specialist Lexi Danes, setter Olivia Hoephner, outside hitter Amelia Fox, middle hitter Olivia Ondrejka, outside hitter Alisha Schaefer and hitter Ashley Lisowe.
Rounding out the roster are seniors Hannah Graf and Rachel Turba and juniors Makenzie Schrage, Cami Guelig, Jessica Diedrich, Lauren Weber and Mya Conrad.
Defending EWC champ Chilton is also having a rebuilding season and may be vulnerable. The Huskies join Sheboygan Falls and Brillion as main threats.
