The Big Sandy Pioneers return three seniors to the roster this 1999-2000 season.
Jessica Curl, Tamara Davis, and Bridgette Quinn are veterans on this year's team. Curl is the setter on the team.
Eryn Darlington, a tough middle blocker, is the lone junior on the team.
The sophomores dominate. Heather Paul is a hitter, Kate Bitz is an outside hitter, Ashley Moes is tough at the middle block, and Amanda Pokorny, and Laceen Ophus are the second-year girls who round out the roster.
Hayley Grubb, at outside hitter, is the only frosh on the squad.
