Season outlook: Fresh off a state tournament berth in 2014, Nanticoke Area head coach Debbie Gavin returns a good portion of her starting lineup, including setter Eddie Lukowski. The expectations are pretty simple. “Last year, I think the state tournament was an eye-opening experience,” Gavin said. “This group, they are a good group of kids. They want to win because they are competitive kids. I just wish we would have a little more leadership. I thought our senior class last year were just great leaders.”
