Trzebiatowski succeeds former coach Jason Hill, who led the Dragons to a 10-12 record a year ago while advancing to the second round of the district playoffs.

Creek, however, lost a ton of talent during the off-season, graduating an astounding nine seniors. Forward Autumn Henry, guard Nicole Jewell, guard Ashley Ross, guard Haylee Zyber, forward Jenna Freeman, guard Morgan Kidder, forward Kayla Myott and guard Gabby Deering all graduated last spring, leaving several spots to be filled.

Although the majority of their roster moved on, the Dragons do return key players Allie Jo Brookman and Lauren Adas, both talented volleyball players. The Lady Dragons have also added several components including point guard Morgan Storer and post players Imani Taylor and Rachel Farrell, while Gabby Grantner and Victory Seitz will take over on the wing.

“I am anticipating a tough, physical season,” said Trzebiatowski. “We have a lot of young, raw talent. Our pressure is scary at times and creates a lot of our offense. I anticipate being a contender in the Metro and success in the post season.”
