The Kent-based Kent Juniors’ volleyball club’s 12’s “Baden” girls’ volleyball team this past weekend won a berth to the upcoming USA Volleyball national tournament in Detroit. The team is coached by Bonnie Foote, Mount Si High School’s head volleyball coach.

Another piece of news from volleyball. Mount Si High School’s head volleyball coach Bonnie Foote, for the first time in over 10 years, will be taking a club team back to the nationals as well.

Her team, the Kent-based Kent Juniors’ 12’s, earned an American division bid in the U-12 age group this past weekend at their Puget Sound Region bid tournament, and this trip to nationals for Foote is the first since she retired from full-time coaching with KJ back in 2007. The team she is coaching this spring includes her daughter Isabelle, who has been a fixture at Mount Si matches, and several of her friends. The full roster includes players Rachel Senger, Hailey Judd, Kinsey Weiss, Samantha Humphrey, Hannah Peschel, Keira Lum-Long, Kirsten Larsen, Alyse Skagen, Ainsley Weatherford and Annika Wright. The girls are all fourth through sixth graders and most attend schools within both the Kent and Tahoma School Districts, with a couple exceptions – one attends a school in the Auburn School District and a second is a private school student.

RidgeValley, Foote’s organization based in Snoqualmie, as you know has a U-12 entry this spring but they did not enter this tournament. That team is coached by Foote’s longtime Mount Si assistants Dave Bachman and Cristin Stahlberg.  READ ARTICLE HERE
