Heritage Hall volleyball team rolling without coach

While Bill Hamiter is in London with the United States sitting volleyball team at the Paralympic Games, Chargers have started high school season strong.

In addition to upsetting then-No. 1 Cascia Hall in the finals of the Commandos' own tournament, the Chargers have wins over Christian Heritage, Bishop McGuinness, Westmoore and Mount St. Mary. They were scheduled to face Class 5A's No. 2 team, Tulsa Washington, on the road Tuesday night.

Hamiter guided the Chargers to three state titles before stepping down to focus on the national program, which he has been a part of since 2001. He returned to Heritage Hall last season.

“He definitely has a history at Heritage Hall,” Cloud said. “He brings a very comfortable aspect to the floor, and that's been very helpful with the younger players.”

And Dobson has worked hard to keep the team's focus positive during Hamiter's absence. He'll return in mid-September as the team is gearing up for the postseason.

“We've encouraged the players to see it as a benefit,” said Dobson, who is in her fourth year with the team. “We have different coaching styles, but the girls are still working just as hard, and they're staying positive.”
