A new era in Mustang volleyball took the court on Monday.

The Lady Broncos, led by former MHS volleyball player Taryn Steele, had to get used to a high-paced, intense practice to begin the fall season.

“I think it’s going to take a little bit to set a different mindset. That’s probably my biggest task right now,” Steele said. “They got a little bit of the style and how I’m going to be and realize that I’m here to win.”

Mustang finished 9-21 last season and fell in the opening round of the regional tournament to end the year earlier than they had planned. The Lady Broncos seemed to be putting in the work necessary to have a successful season.

“They’ve put in a lot of effort into it and gave me 100 percent so I was pleased with that,” Steele said.

The Mustang Lady Broncos’ practices were intense, quick and all out for the girls every second they were in a drill, just like Steele wants it to be.

“It’s 100 percent all of the time giving me all they have. Everybody’s giving me all they have,” Steele said.

Mustang will look towards getting better as a whole during preseason practices. The girls will begin scrimmaging and then looking towards the new season next week.

This is Steele’s first year at Mustang. Steele knows the passion and success of the volleyball program and wants to continue the tradition, even take it to new heights.

“I have already looked at our schedule and I evaluated the kind of talent that we have. I have a record in my mind and I don’t think I’ll be happy if we don’t achieve it,” Steele said. “I fully expect to have a winning season and get a good place in a regional and get a good bid and go win it. That’s my expectations.”
