The Coronavirus Pandemic has forced student athletes across the Tri-state area to adapt to new health and safety guidelines and for the Castle volleyball team, that experience has been no different.

"It's not an outside sport so, everyone's kind of closer, so we're taking measures to stay 6 feet apart,always wearing our mask, keeping everyone safe around us and ourselves," said Castle Sophomore Setter Breanna Lane.

"Volleyball is just a huge life lesson about resiliency and what you can do to get over and around obstacles and think whether it's Covid or not Covid, we're just working to make the season work and learn from all of these trial and we have to go through it and do the very best that we can," said Castle Head Volleyball Coach Daniel Watson

The Knights are currently 12-0 and refused to let the pandemic stop them from getting off to a fast start.

"Kind of trying to pick up where we left off. Obviously every year is different but we got the time we had to prepare and we made the most of it," said Castle Junior Libero Kiera Moore

"It's not about how many times we get together it's the quality of each contact, the quality of every drill, the quality of everyday and if we're improving and getting better, we don't need as much time because the time that we did spend was really rich and really got us to where we want to be," said Watson.

Castle has currently won 26 sectional titles in a row, but not claimed a regional crown since 1995. Something this unbeaten group believes it can change.

"We have a lot of people stepping up to be leaders this year and we have a strong core this year so I think that's really awesome and we all have a really good connection," said Moore.

"We just hope that we keep on getting better through the year and that we can succeed to get to regional," said Lane.

The Tri-State is about to witness a metric ton of change over the next 36 hours or so, but before we get to the meat of the forecast let's focus on the hearer and the now - after seeing an absolutely gorgeous start to the work week with afternoon highs nearing the 70° mark and little to no cloud cover, clear skies will linger through the evening ahead and into tomorrow morning as temperature gradually dwindle into the upper 30s and low 40s area-wide. We'll fall to 42° in Evansville setting the stage for yet another mild, albeit far less quiet Tuesday ahead.
