Team: North Bend Central
Colors: Orange and Black
Head Coach: Amy Sterup (13th season)
2017 record: 31-3 (Took 4th at State)
Returning Starters: 2
The North Bend Central Volleyball Team looks to retool and reload following last year’s spectacular season in which the Tigers made their second straight appearance at state, taking 4th place.
North Bend Central was hit hard by graduation as they return just two starters in Lauren Emanuel (6’1, MH) and Megan Ortmeier (5’8, OH).
Big losses include Kristin Lux and Brooke Fredrickson, who are both off playing college Volleyball now. Other big losses are Kaitlynn Bjorklund and Hailey Bang.
North Bend Central opens up the season on Thursday at the Northeast Nebraska Volleyball Classic at Wisner-Pilger against Oakland-Craig and Wakefield/Allen.
North Bend Central looks to continue their winning ways and tradition from years past.
13th year Head Coach Amy Sterup says the team can’t wait to show what they can do. “We are looking forward to a season where we can grow as a team. Girls have worked hard in the offseason and cannot wait to get started. It is a new year with a brand new team on the court.”
The Tigers are coming off arguably the best season in school history. Sterup says their approach remains the same. “We are taking it one game at a time, improving as the season progresses.”
The Tigers are in Sub-District C1-6 with West Point-Beemer, Tekamah-Herman, Logan View/Scribner-Snyder, and Arlington.
