CANFIELD OH- The tournament always brings a sense of urgency to locker rooms. That is especially true for Canfield. Their roster is full of seniors who simply don’t want to say goodbye to their season.  They’ve spent all year sharpening their skills against a brutal schedule. Canfield may have dropped down to division 2, but their schedule still reflects that of a division 1 school. That schedule has zero easy wins on it.  The Cardinals have brought an energetic drive to their practices leading up to tournament time.  They got their first round win over Ravenna and now look forward to a game against Perry.  That will be Thursday at Notre Dame Cathedral Latin.

Canfield head coach Krista Nesbitt took some time after practice to sit down with Anthony Hartwig to talk about the season, and their upcoming path to a district championship.  They also break down the great regular season the Cardinals have put together.  Check out Episode 2 of Coach’s Corner With Krista Nesbitt only on YSN!

CANFIELD OH- It’s the start of a new era in Canfield for their volleyball program. The Cardinals will face 2022 with a new coach at the helm. Krista Nesbitt enters the fold to lead the Cardinals. Last year, Nesbitt was the JV coach for the Cardinals, and so she was at every step of the journey.
