BOONE GROVE| Nicole Malouhos and Linda Eleftheri are cut from the same cloth.

Each bring the same cheerful demeanor to volleyball practice every day, both share the same goals and they’ve even taken to finishing each others’ sentences.

When Eleftheri, the volleyball coach, was also named the girls basketball coach over the summer, that meant her and Malouhous would be spending a lot of time together.

“I’m not really sure what things will be like for basketball, but volleyball is great,” Malouhous said. “It’s a completely different sport, but I’m sure we’ll be fine.”

Malouhos entered the season as one of the few returning starters on the volleyball team and she’s one of a handful of volleyball players that will be playing for Eleftheri on the basketball court this winter.

“Nicole has more experience than anyone else on the team and that has helped this season,” Eleftheri said.

As much as Eleftheri is preparing for the start of basketball season, the fact that Malouhos and some of her teammates are currently going through conditioning in volleyball will help ease the burden when practice begins later this month.

Though the sports are different, Eleftheri doesn’t expect to suddenly become a different coach when the nets get changed on the court. That kind of familiarity will only help Malouhos and her teammates.

“I’m still going to coach the same way,” Eleftheri said. “There really isn’t that big of a difference between volleyball and basketball.”

Malouhos, who verbally committed to play volleyball at Ferris State last spring, isn’t thinking about basketball season just yet. The Wolves, with a record of 13-6, are still aiming big for the rest of volleyball season.

“I want to win the PCC and I want to win a sectional,” Malouhos said. “I’ve won a sectional in basketball and I know how that feels. I want that feeling for volleyball now. The sectional is (at Boone Grove) and that would make winning 10 times sweeter.”
