Others: Senior Kylie Ruffing (OH). Junior Caitlin Sauers (DS). Sophomores Paige Reichert (RH); Kayleen England (OH); Freshman Sydney Carr (DS).
Outlook: Chaffee is in her second season with the Tigers, and brings back a squad with some experience.
Five seniors populate Seneca East's roster, four of whom return from last year.
"I can tell that right now our senior leadership is strong and we're coming together more, like what I envisioned for my program," Chaffee said. "Basically we're just building on our skills and starting to come together."
Chaffee said Bauman and her middle hitters will be her "go-to girls." She also said she has a team that should be able to move around the court.
"I think we're very versatile," she said. "I have girls that can play in different places. They know the court well. They have a good mindset of the court."
Chaffee didn't make specific predictions on how the Tigers would do in the MAL, just saying she wants them to be competitive.
"I guess we just want to be strong competitors in everything we do and putting our best game forward," she said.
