Tekamah-Herman goes 0-2 at own Invite; beats Madison
2020-09-26T01:15

 



The Tekamah-Herman Volleyball Team lost 2-1 to BRLD and 2-0 Omaha Roncalli at their own Invite on Saturday before sweeping Madison 3-0 on the road Tuesday night.

The Tigers took set one from the Wolverines 25-20 before losing set two 25-18 and set three 25-13.

The Crimson Pride defeated Tekamah-Herman 25-18 in set one and 25-20 in set two.

The Tigers downed the Dragons 25-14 in set one, and 25-16 in sets two and three.

I thought Tekamah-Herman competed very well in all three matches.

The Tigers (4-11) take on Stanton (4-13) and Oakland-Craig (10-3) at their home Triangular Tuesday night.

The Mustangs lost 2-0 to Wisner-Pilger and 2-1 to Pender at their Home Triangular this past Tuesday night.

The Knights won 3-2 at GACC Thursday night.

I fully expect Tekamah-Herman to come out ready to go Tuesday night.

I think the Tigers can beat Stanton and compete well against Oakland-Craig.

The Knights are an exceptionally talented team, and will be tough to beat, but Tekamah-Herman can't back down from them or the Mustangs for that matter.

The Tigers are improving and getting better, and have to go out there and slug with both teams Tuesday night.

Tekamah-Herman has to play with a chip on their shoulder as well.

The Tigers have to continue to be scrappy and gritty, and must go out there and fight and claw and earn their points.

This is a big opportunity for Tekamah-Herman so the Tigers have to go out there and do well and not let the opportunity go by the wayside.

Tekamah-Herman has to look at this Triangular as an opportunity to succeed, improve, do well, and get better.

Stanton goes 1-2 at own Tournament; goes 0-2 in Home Triangular
2020-09-26T12:52

 



The Stanton Volleyball Team lost 2-0 to Crofton and Clarkson/Leigh, but beat Arlington 2-1 at their own Tournament on Saturday before falling 2-0 to Wisner-Pilger and 2-1 to Pender at their home Triangular Tuesday night.

The Mustangs lost set one 25-18 and set two 25-20 to the Patriots.

Bridgett Jensen had 9 assists.

The Eagles took set one 25-19 before Stanton won set two 25-18 and set three 25-21.

Sylvia Cunningham and Ellie Locke each had 11 kills while Kinley Pohlman had 9 digs. Cunningham chipped in 8 digs while Jensen and Olivia Cunningham totaled 18 and 10 assists, respectively.

The Mustangs beat the Warriors 25-20 in set one and 25-18 in set two.

Stanton lost set one 25-19 and set two 25-17 to the Gators.

The Pendragons won set one 25-17 and set three 25-21 after losing set two 25-22.

I thought the Mustangs competed well in every match.

Stanton (4-13) takes on Tekamah-Herman (4-11) and Oakland-Craig (10-3) at the Tekamah-Herman Triangular Tuesday night.

The Tigers won 3-0 at Madison Tuesday night while the Knights won 3-2 at GACC Thursday night.

O-C is the clear cut favorite to win this Triangular, but the match between the Mustangs and Tekamah-Herman looks to be pretty evenly matched.

You might give the Tigers the advantage since they're at home, but anything can happen.

Stanton has to go in there ready to compete and play hard and well.

The Mustangs have to be confident, and have to go out there and give it their all.

Stanton has to be tenacious with their attack, and must make both teams earn their points.

The Mustangs can't back down from either team, and have to get pumped up come Tuesday night.

Stanton has to play with lots of pride and toughness and grit and go out there and play good Volleyball the entire night.

Clarkson/Leigh wins home Triangular; goes 2-1 at Stanton Tournament
2020-09-26T12:31

 




The Clarkson/Leigh Volleyball Team won their home Triangular over High Plains and Humphrey/Lindsay Holy Family last Thursday night, defeating both teams 2-0. The Patriots then beat Hartington Cedar Catholic and Stanton 2-0, but lost 2-0 to Battle Creek at the Stanton Tournament on Saturday.

The Patriots defeated the Storm 25-13 in set one and 25-11 in set two.

The Bravettes took set one 25-21 and set two 25-20.

Kayden Schumacher had 8 digs while Lemburg posted 7. Held recorded 14 assists.

Continued great play from Clarkson/Leigh. Two close set losses to Battle Creek, and while you never want to lose, I feel there are many positives to take away from a loss like that, especially with it being the first loss of the season for the Patriots.

Clarkson/Leigh (9-1) takes part in the Hampton Invite on Saturday.

The Patriots play Silver Lake at 10:00 a.m., and Mead at 12:30 p.m.

Clarkson/Leigh will have one more game after that at either 1:45 or 3:00 p.m.

I think the Patriots have a chance to do really well in and win this Tournament.

Both the Mustangs and Raiders are good, quality tough teams, but I don't feel either one of them plays the caliber of competition that Clarkson/Leigh does.

The Patriots have to go out there and be ready to play and really want it come Saturday.

Clarkson/Leigh can definitely win this Tournament as they can do anything they put their mind to.

The Patriots have to get a good night's rest and be energetic and excited and full of energy come Saturday morning.

Clarkson/Leigh has to continue to play the type of great Volleyball they have all season long.

The Patriots have to remain calm when things get tough, and be the tougher team.

Clarkson/Leigh has to be physically and mentally tougher than the rest of the field.

The Patriots have to go out there and get it on Saturday, and play superb Volleyball.

Go get em Clarkson/Leigh!

North Bend Central loses to Wisner-Pilger and West Point-Beemer
2020-09-26T12:04

 


The North Bend Central Volleyball Team fell 3-0 at Wisner-Pilger last Thursday night before losing 3-0 at West Point-Beemer this past Thursday night.

The Tigers lost set one 25-15, set two 25-21, and set three 25-22 to the Gators.

NBC fell 25-17, 25-23, and 25-19 to the Cadets.

The Tigers definitely struggled in both matches.

North Bend Central (8-6) takes part in the David City Invite on Saturday.

The Tigers play Shelby-Rising City, David City, David City Aquinas, and Central City. 

Sounds like wins and success to me.

I wouldn't be surprised in NBC went 4-0 in and won this Tournament.

The Tigers have stumbled a little bit lately, but I feel this is the tournament for North Bend Central to get back on track with.

The Tigers want to be playing their best Volleyball come Thursday's road match at Malcolm.

That's a huge game, and North Bend Central has to play well on Saturday and on Tuesday against Twin River if that match is played in order to get ready for the Clippers.

I feel like the Tigers will play and do well and find and have success come Saturday.

West Point-Beemer 4-0 in last four matches
2020-09-25T11:50

 


The West Point-Beemer Volleyball Team swept Madison 3-0 at home last Thursday night before beating Logan View/Scribner-Snyder 2-0 and Humphrey/Lindsay Holy Family 2-1 at the Humphrey/Lindsay Holy Family Triangular Tuesday night. The Cadets then swept North Bend Central 3-0 at home this past Thursday night.

The Cadets downed the Dragons 25-5, 25-11, and 25-13.

Jadyn Meiergerd and Katie Rainforth each had 8 kills while Reece Snodgrass posted 22 assists.

West Point-Beemer defeated the Raiders 25-17 in set one and 25-20 in set two.

Rachel Groth had 11 kills while Meiergerd totaled 7. Brooklyn Weddle added 12 digs while Snodgrass compiled 22 assists.

The Cadets knocked off the Bulldogs 25-18 in set one and 25-20 in set three after losing set two 25-20.

Sidney Swanson had 13 kills and 8 digs while Groth notched 9 kills. Meiergerd contributed 7 kills and 7 digs with Weddle amassing 15 digs. Snodgrass chipped in 11 digs and dished out 25 assists while Rainforth registered 11 digs.

West Point-Beemer won set one 25-17, set two 25-23, and set three 25-19 over the Tigers.

Swanson led the way with 15 kills and 9 digs while Meiergerd had 11 kills. Groth added 7 kills while Weddle chipped in 16 digs. Snodgrass registered 33 assists.

The Cadets continue to have a season to remember.

West Point-Beemer (13-3) takes part in the Elkhorn Valley Tournament in Tilden on Saturday.

The Cadets will face Battle Creek at 9:00 a.m., Fremont Bergan at noon, Osmond at 1:00 p.m., and have a crossover game at either 3:00 or 4:00 p.m.

The Bravettes come in at 14-1 on the season, and that should be a heck of a match right off the bat.

The Knights are very good too, and so this tournament will really challenge West Point-Beemer I feel.

Battle Creek being so close to Tilden is an advantage for the Bravettes I feel.

The Cadets have won 8 in a row and are rolling right now though.

West Point-Beemer is definitely going to be challenged in this Tournament, but I feel the Cadets will be up to and ready for the challenge.

It will be interesting to see what happens on Saturday.

It should be a great tournament.

St. Paul is in the other pool and they are undefeated so it will be interesting to see if they make the Championship and/or if West Point-Beemer plays them.

Tri County Northeast drops home match to Laurel-Concord-Coleridge
2020-09-23T07:57

 



The Tri County Northeast Volleyball Team fell 3-1 at home to Laurel-Concord-Coleridge last Tuesday night.

The Bears won set one 25-21 and set two 25-22 before the Wolfpack took set three 25-22. Laurel-Concord-Coleridge closed out the match with a 25-22 set four win.

Alli Jackson had 17 kills and 11 digs while Jordyn Carr totaled 15 kills and 12 digs. Getsemane Ferrusca totaled 16 digs while Carly Dickens recorded 34 assists.

Solid effort from Tri County Northeast Tuesday night, it just wasn't enough.

The Wolfpack (2-6) takes on BRLD (12-6) Thursday night.

The Wolverines beat Ponca 3-1 at home Tuesday night.

Tri County Northeast only fell 2-1 to the Indians so we'll see what the Wolfpack does come Thursday night.

I feel like Tri County Northeast started the season off strong, but has struggled ever since.

The Wolfpack needs to raise their level of play and get things back on track.

Tri County Northeast is getting big contributions across the board from everyone, but it just hasn't yielded many wins as of late.

I know COVID-19 has really complicated things, but the Wolfpack has to continue to fight and battle and get better.

I feel like Tri County Northeast is a good, solid team too, they just need something to spark a run.

The schedule has its challenges the rest of the way, but the Wolfpack can still win some matches and do some damage this season yet.

Winnebago has cancelled all of their matches through October 1st due to the coronavirus pandemic, which is too bad for Tri County Northeast because that could of been another win for the Wolfpack on Thursday.

Instead the Indians will not be taking part in the Triangular and it will just be BRLD.

The Wolfpack has to make the most of it, and must go out there and give things their best shot Thursday night.

BRLD goes 2-0 at Tekamah-Herman Invite, beats Ponca
2020-09-23T07:44

 



The BRLD Volleyball Team won 2-1 over Tekamah-Herman and swept Omaha Roncalli 2-0 at the Tekamah-Herman Invite on Saturday before winning 3-1 at home over Ponca Tuesday night.

The Tigers won set one against the Wolverines 25-20 before BRLD won set two 25-18 and set three 25-13.

Nottleman had 7 kills while Tietz and Grace Johnson chipped in 10 and 8 blocks, respectively. Bella Bonneau and Berg each had 7 digs while Bacon registered 10 assists.


The Wolverines defeated the Indians 25-22 in set one and 25-20 in set two before winning set four 25-22 after losing set three 26-24.


Great play from BRLD in their last three matches.


The Wolverines (12-6) take on Tri County Northeast (2-6) Thursday night.


The Wolfpack fell 3-1 at home to Laurel-Concord-Coleridge last Tuesday night.


This was supposed to be a Triangular with Winnebago, but the Indians cancelled all their matches through October 1st due to the Coronavirus Pandemic.


This should be a sweep for BRLD.


The Wolverines are playing really good Volleyball right now, and I look for BRLD to dominate once again Thursday night.


The Wolverines have some tough matches on the horizon so BRLD has caught fire at the right time.


The Wolverines have to keep things going and keep the ball rolling against Tri County Northeast Thursday night and Omaha Nation Monday night before matches with Wisner-Pilger and Howells-Dodge Tuesday night, and Oakland-Craig next Thursday night.

Howells-Dodge swept at home by Lutheran High Northeast
2020-09-23T07:28

 


The Howells-Dodge Volleyball Team fell 3-0 at home to undefeated Lutheran High Northeast Tuesday night.

The Eagles took set one 25-21, set two 25-17, and set three 25-11.

Grace Baumert had 7 kills and 7 digs while Ellie Baumert notched 7 digs and 16 assists.

LHNE is simply a great team.

The Jaguars (8-3) take on Pender (5-7) and Cedar Bluffs (8-2) at the Pender Triangular Thursday night.

The Pendragons lost 2-0 to Wisner-Pilger, but beat Stanton 2-1 at the Stanton Triangular Tuesday night.

The Wildcats on the other hand swept St. Edward 3-0 at home Thursday night.

Howells-Dodge swept Pender 2-0 in another triangular in Pender a couple of weeks back.

The Pendragons are playing better Volleyball now then they were then though so Pender figures to be tough.

Cedar Bluffs has had a favorable schedule, and I look for the Jaguars to be able to beat them.

I think Howells-Dodge will win this Triangular.

The Baumert transfers stand out for this Jaguar squad.

Pender and Cedar Bluffs are having nice seasons, but I think Howells-Dodge is a few steps ahead of them.

And you know the Jaguars will want to respond well following the loss to the Eagles.

Howells-Dodge simply has to go out there and play their game come Thursday night.

Play together as one, and be tough as nails.

Pender 2-1 in last three matches
2020-09-23T07:18

 




The Pender Volleyball Team won 3-1 at Wakefield Thursday night before losing 2-0 to Wisner-Pilger, but beating Stanton 2-1 at the Stanton Triangular Tuesday night.

The Pendragons took set one from the Gators 25-13 before losing set two 25-15. Pender won set three 25-23 and set four 25-13.

Ashley Ostrand had 13 kills and 29 digs while Olyvia Nelson posted 9 kills and 19 digs. Alyssa Geisert totaled 7 kills while Zoey Lehmkuhl registered 7 kills, 14 digs, and 29 assists. Caitlyn Heise and Kirsten Frey notched 11 digs apiece while Brieann Bruns chipped in 10.

The Gators downed the Pendragons 25-10 in set one and 25-17 in set two.

Pender beat the Mustangs 25-17 in set one, and 25-21 in set three after losing set two 25-22.

Good play from Pender over their last three matches. The Pendragons are playing good Volleyball as of late.

Pender (5-7) hosts Cedar Bluffs (8-2) and Howells-Dodge (8-3) in a Triangular Thursday night.

The Wildcats won 3-0 at home over St. Edward last week while the Jaguars fell 3-0 at home to Lutheran High Northeast Tuesday night.

Cedar Bluffs may be 8-2, but the Wildcats haven't played nearly the caliber of teams and schedule that Pender has.

The Jaguars are legit, but I feel like the Pendragons have a good chance to get Cedar Bluffs.

You never want to settle for a split in a Triangular, but if that's what Pender gets in this Triangular I think they will take it.

Lots of opportunities for wins coming up for the Pendragons so Pender has to keep the ball rolling and playing well.

Ostrand needs to continue to play great and lead this team, and so does Lehmkuhl.

They are the two most experienced players on this team, and it feels like they have been around forever.

I think the Pendragons are playing their best Volleyball of the season right now, and are a team that no one wants to face.

It seems like Pender has stepped up their game since losing to Clarkson/Leigh.

We'll see if the Pendragons can continue their winning ways Thursday night.

Wisner-Pilger sweeps North Bend Central, Stanton Triangular
2020-09-23T07:04

 


The Wisner-Pilger Volleyball Team has gotten their season on track, sweeping North Bend Central 3-0 at home Thursday night before winning 2-0 over Stanton and Pender at the Stanton Triangular Tuesday night.

The Gators beat the Tigers 25-15, 25-21, and 25-22.

Emily Buhrman had 11 kills and 7 digs while Lindsey Kneifl totaled 9 kills and 8 digs. Reagan Scholting and Lily Otten registered 8 and 7 kills, respectively. Adi Meyer had 24 assists while Cameryn Bellar totaled 17.

Wisner-Pilger topped the Mustangs 25-19 in set one and 25-17 in set two.

Kneifl had 7 digs while Bellar and Meyer recorded 15 and 11 assists, respectively.

The Gators beat the Pendragons 25-10 in set one and 25-17 in set two.

Buhrman and Otten each had 7 kills while Joslyn Jacobs posted 10 digs. Scholting added 7 digs while Meyer compiled 18 assists.

Very impressive play from Wisner-Pilger as of late.

The Gators (6-5) take on Battle Creek (12-1) and Crofton (7-7) at the Crofton Triangular Thursday night.

The Bravettes beat Neligh-Oakdale 3-0 Tuesday night while the Warriors beat Laurel-Concord-Coleridge 3-1 at home Tuesday night.

Both teams are solid, and Wisner-Pilger is going to need to be able to play very well in order to be successful.

I think the Gators have a chance to win both matches and win this Triangular given the way they are playing right now.

I feel like Battle Creek will be the tougher of the two matches though.

Wisner-Pilger has to go up there ready to compete and play well.

I think the Gators will do just that, and go on to have a fine and fantastic Triangular.

I feel like balanced offensive production has made all the difference for Wisner-Pilger as of late.

The Gators have to continue to get that and have to keep playing and performing well.

I look for Wisner-Pilger to continue to get that too, and for the Gators to keep playing at a very high level.

Anything can happen in this Triangular, and if I'm the Bravettes and Warriors I'm not so sure I want to see Wisner-Pilger right now.

Oakland-Craig falls at home to Wahoo
2020-09-23T06:49

 




Wahoo remained undefeated on the season when they swept Oakland-Craig in three sets in high school volleyball from Oakland aired on 107.9 The Bull Thursday night, Sept. 17.

The Warriors won the match 25-16, 25-23, 25-23.


Bailey Helzer had 20 kills and 7 digs while Laryn Johnson notched 9 digs. Josie Richards added 28 assists.


Great effort from the Knights, they just came up a little short.


Oakland-Craig (9-3) travels to GACC to take on the Bluejays (7-5) Thursday night.


The Bluejays swept Homer 3-0 at home Tuesday night.


GACC figures to be a very tough and formidable foe as the Bluejays are 4-1 in their last five matches.


GACC has really come on as of late, and is doing great, extraordinary, and outstanding things.


I look for this match to be really good, and perhaps even go five sets.


But the Knights have a player in Helzer, who is a very special Volleyball player.


She had a great match against the Warriors, and I look for her to play very well again against the Bluejays.


She is the leader for Oakland-Craig and really makes the Knights go.


You can bet GACC will throw everything they can at her to stop her, so she will have to be ready to roll for sure.


Helzer can definitely have another big match though, and I feel like if she does that may carry the Knights past the Bluejays in say five sets.


Should be a great match for sure come Thursday night.

GACC beats O'Neill and Homer
2020-09-23T06:41

 




The Guardian Angels Central Catholic Volleyball Team won 3-1 at home over O'Neill Thursday night before sweeping Homer 3-0 at home Tuesday night.

The Bluejays took set one from the Eagles 25-20. O'Neill won set two 25-21 before GACC won set three 25-19 and set four 25-16.

Sophia Hass had 21 kills and 16 digs while Taylor Timmerman and Andie Guenther added 10 and 8 kills, respectively. Isabel Hass totaled 26 digs while Megan Plagge registered 17 digs and 37 assists. Erica Engelmeyer tallied 13 digs while Kelsy Steffen notched 9.

The Bluejays downed the Knights 25-10 in set one, 25-13 in set two, and 25-21 in set three.

Sophia Hass totaled 14 kills and 9 digs while Greta Wooldrik and Timmerman registered 9 and 7 kills, respectively. Isabel Hass chipped in 14 digs while Steffen posted 11. Engelmeyer totaled 7 while Plagge recorded 32 assists.

Two really nice wins for GACC.

The Bluejays (7-5) host Oakland-Craig (9-3) Thursday night.

The Knights lost 3-0 at home to Wahoo on Thursday of last week.

Oakland-Craig is a very good team that competed well against the Warriors I thought.

GACC is a really good team in their own right though, and something has to give in this match.

The Bluejays have been playing their best Volleyball in the last two weeks so this should be a highly entertaining and interesting match.

I feel this match will be a great one, and could perhaps even go five sets.

GACC has to try and contain and stop and slow down Bailey Helzer.

The Animal of the Week really makes the Knights go, and she is definitely the leader for Oakland-Craig.

The Bluejays get the Knights at their house though, and so this should be a great match for sure.

I feel things could go either way given the way GACC is playing right now, but Oakland-Craig is going to be very tough there's no doubt about that.

These are the kind of matches the Bluejays want to play though.

Logan View/Scribner-Snyder goes 1-2 at own Tournament
2020-09-22T01:26

 


The Logan View/Scribner-Snyder Volleyball Team beat Schuyler 2-0 at their own Tournament on Saturday, but fell 2-0 to Yutan and 2-1 to Homer.

The Chieftains won set one 25-18 and set two 25-19.

Dream Daugherty had 9 digs while Leah Keithley totaled 8. Miranda Batenhorst added 9.

The Knights won set one 26-24, and won set three 25-14 after losing set two 25-12.

Daugherty notched 11 kills and 21 digs while Karlie Hansen posted 11 digs. Keithley and Batenhorst tallied 11 assists each.

Daugherty had 11 kills and 7 digs against the Warriors while Keithley compiled 13 assists.

Good for LVSS to pick up one win on Saturday at least.

The Raiders (5-11) take on West Point-Beemer (10-3) and Humphrey/Lindsay Holy Family (5-7) at the H/LHF Triangular Tuesday night.

The Cadets, who swept Madison 3-0 at home Thursday night, have won five straight.

The Bulldogs went 2-1 at the CWC Tournament on Saturday, beating Neligh-Oakdale and Twin Loup 2-1, but losing 2-0 to the host Renegades.

This will be a pretty tough Triangular for LVSS I think.

Both teams are very talented, especially the Cadets.

The Raiders have to go into this ready to compete and challenge both teams though.

Daugherty has to have two big matches for Logan View/Scribner-Snyder, and the Raiders need to play great throughout to have a chance.

I feel like LVSS has the potential to do well and compete in this tournament, but the competition is stout.

I will say I think the Raiders have a better chance against the Bulldogs than they do the Cadets.

All Logan View/Scribner-Snyder can do is go out there and give things their best shot so we'll see what happens.

Winnebago sweeps Walthill Triangular; loses at home to Ponca

Winnebago fell 25-16, 25-11, and 25-22 to Ponca.

Good wins and a good, strong effort against Ponca on Tuesday.

Bago (2-5) was scheduled to host the Winnebago Invite on Saturday with Santee, Omaha Nation, and Walthill, but the tournament has been cancelled due to the Coronavirus Pandemic.

Tekamah-Herman goes 1-2 at Boone Central Invite; falls to West Point-Beemer
2020-09-18T01:24

 


The Tekamah-Herman Volleyball Team lost 2-0 to Ord and Boone Central at the Boone Central Invite on Saturday before defeating Central City 2-0. The Tigers then fell 3-0 at home to West Point-Beemer Tuesday night.

Good win for Tekamah-Herman over Central City.

The Tigers (3-9) host their own Invite on Saturday.

Tekamah-Herman's first opponent is BRLD (9-6) at 9:00 a.m.

The Wolverines lost 3-0 at home to Fremont Bergan Tuesday night.

The Tigers get BRLD at home early in the morning, and that could mean upset time perhaps.

The Wolverines did sweep Tekamah-Herman 3-0 at home in the season opener on August 27th though so upsetting BRLD doesn't figure to be easy.

The Tigers also have matches with Omaha Roncalli and Fort Calhoun.


Figures to be another day of opportunity for Tekamah-Herman.


That is of course if this tournament gets played and doesn't get cancelled or postponed because of the coronavirus pandemic.


Let's hope that this tournament gets played and that everyone remains healthy.

BRLD goes 2-2 on Day Two of Wakefield Invite; swept at home by Fremont Bergan

BRLD is now 9-6 on the season and will participate in the Tekamah-Herman Invite on Saturday.

The Wolverines' first match of the day is against the host Tigers (3-9) at 9:00 a.m.


Tekamah-Herman fell 3-0 at home to West Point-Beemer Tuesday night.


BRLD beat the Tigers 3-0 at home in the season opener.


The Wolverines also have matches with Fort Calhoun and Omaha Roncalli.


Both those teams are at about .500, and I think BRLD definitely beats the Pioneers, and perhaps even knocks off the Crimson Pride.


Roncalli has played a tough schedule though so they will be difficult to contend with for sure.


It's the last match of the day though, and if the Wolverines take care of business in their first two matches they may end up winning the entire thing.


That's of course if things don't get postponed or cancelled due to the coronavirus pandemic.


We've seen some postponements and cancellations in the area this week already, so hopefully this doesn't get added to the list.

2020-09-17T04:43

 



The Oakland-Craig Volleyball Team went 2-1 at Saturday's Boone Central Invite, beating the host Cardinals 2-1 in their first match of the day before defeating Ord 2-0 in the Semifinals, and losing 2-0 to Columbus Lakeview in the Championship. The Knights then won 3-2 at Humphrey/Lindsay Holy Family Tuesday night.

Oakland-Craig (9-2) hosts undefeated and top-ranked Wahoo (8-0) Thursday night in action that can be heard on 107.9 the Bull.

The Warriors won 3-0 at home over Beatrice Tuesday night.

This is a rare and big-time opponent coming into Oakland.

Wahoo is the type of team you want to face in preparing yourselves for an end of season run.

The Warriors are the kind of team that helps prepare you for the postseason, including state, and bolsters and strengthens your team.

I look for the Knights to compete really well in this match and play great. 

I also look for Helzer to have a great match individually.

If it's anything like the other night then it should be a thriller.

I think Oakland-Craig on Tuesday was perhaps looking ahead to the match with Wahoo on Thursday.

Not to take anything away from the Bulldogs, but the Knights could have easily won that match in 3 or 4 sets.

What's important though is that Oakland-Craig escaped Humphrey with a win.

And now the stage is set for the Knights Thursday night.

Oakland-Craig has to simply go out there and get it. 

First serve is scheduled for 7:00 p.m. on the Bull.

The Baumert and Baumert connection led Howells-Dodge to victory over the weekend and on Tuesday.

West Point-Beemer sweeps Schuyler Triangular and Tekamah-Herman
2020-09-17T05:30

West Point-Beemer (9-3) plays host to Madison (1-7) Thursday night.

The Dragons lost 3-0 at home to Bloomfield Monday night.

The last three matches, including one that night that was supposed to be played against Elkhorn Valley as part of a Triangular, was postponed. Same with matches last Thursday.

So Madison is struggling and has only played 1 match in the last week plus so the Cadets have that going for them and on their side.

Not that West Point-Beemer needs that to beat the Dragons, but it's an added bonus for the Cadets for sure.

I look for West Point-Beemer to go out there and win big Thursday night.

The Cadets are having a dream season for sure, and you can't help but think that this team has a shot to make state.

A long ways to go yet, but West Point-Beemer has to keep achieving a lot and must keep dreaming big.

I've been really impressed with the Cadets' play so far this year, and I look for West Point-Beemer to continue their stellar play Thursday night against Madison. 

GACC wins at Boone Central; loses to Wayne
2020-09-17T05:30

 



The Guardian Angels Central Catholic Volleyball Team swept Boone Central 3-0 on the road Thursday night before losing 3-0 at Wayne Tuesday night.

The Bluejays won 25-23, 25-16, and 25-12 over the Cardinals.

Good win and effort from the Bluejays against Boone Central, but a tough loss to Wayne.

GACC (5-5) hosts O'Neill (6-1) Thursday night.

O'Neill lost 3-0 at undefeated Lutheran High Northeast Tuesday night.

The Bluejays could definitely pull off the upset in this one if that's what you want to call it.

Sometimes a difficult loss has a carry over effect into the next game or match, and that's exactly what I think could happen in this one.

It's a long road trip for O'Neill too, and GACC is a tough place to play.

The Bluejays have to step up and go all out in this one.

GACC has to put together their best performance of the season, and try and find a way to come away with a win.

The Bluejays can definitely do it too they just have to believe.

GACC has to play hard, smart, and inspired.

The Bluejays have to take it to the Eagles the entire match, and make O'Neill earn their points and set wins if they get any. 

Clarkson/Leigh sweeps Pender
2020-09-17T05:29

 





The Clarkson/Leigh Volleyball Team continued their hot start to the season Thursday night, sweeping Pender 3-0 on the road in action aired on 107.9 the Bull.

The Patriots won set one 25-18, took set two 25-14, and won set three 25-20.

The theme of the match was Clarkson/Leigh getting out to a lead in each set and responding to any and all Pendragon runs throughout the match as anytime Pender would make things close, tie things up, or take the lead the Patriots had an answer.

Clarkson/Leigh Head Coach Becky Schneider.

"Yeah that's one thing we talked about in the locker room was that like the 3rd set we were up 7-2, and they came back and it was 9-9. And that's something that we've talked about is not letting teams come back. And props to Pender they made us struggle a little bit, we made some unforced errors that we just didn't do a good job of taking care of the ball at times. But yeah one thing our team does really well is hold composure. At any point in time we don't panic, and that's been the key to our success is that they're calm, cool, and collected the whole match. So that's huge for us." 

Pender's lone lead of the match came in the 2nd set when the Pendragons went up 11-10.

Cassidy Hoffman had 10 kills to pace the Patriots while Chloe Hanel chipped in 7 kills and 9 digs. Alissa Kasik had 22 digs while Kennedy Settje and Kayden Schumacher totaled 16 and 13, respectively. Makenna Held added 28 assists.

Schneider talks about her team's offensive weapons.

"Yeah we've got a lot of threats across the net. We've got some big hitters, strong hitters. Yeah Chloe coming in as a Freshman is huge for us. She does a nice job. She's got a quick arm swing, she elevates really well. And Cassidy Hoffman man she's a Senior and she's really stepped up into that leadership role...taking control, owning the net, like she wants it. And she wants to go out on a high note her Senior year and it shows. Same with Kayden Schumacher...I describe her as feisty...she's quick on the arm strong also, and she just gets up, and for her height she jumps really well."

Clarkson/Leigh returns (5-0) to action Thursday night, battling High Plains Community (6-3) and Humphrey/Lindsay Holy Family (2-5) at their home Triangular.

The Storm beat Palmer 2-0 and Riverside 2-0 at the Palmer Triangular Tuesday night while the Bulldogs fell 3-2 at home to Oakland-Craig Tuesday night.

I think the Patriots have a great chance to win both of these matches, but both will be challenging for sure.


The Bulldogs pushed Oakland-Craig to the brink and figure to be tough, and High Plains is tough too, but this Clarkson/Leigh team doesn't get rattled.


I'm very impressed with the Patriots' ability to let things go and move on to the next play.


Clarkson/Leigh is a resilient and very tough minded team.


The Patriots have to continue to be and play that way come Thursday night.


Clarkson/Leigh has to keep the ball rolling Thursday night, and play well.

Pender swept by Clarkson/Leigh

The Pender Volleyball Team was swept 3-0 by Clarkson/Leigh at home Thursday night in action aired on 107.9 the Bull.


The Patriots won set one 25-18, took set two 25-14, and won set three 25-20. 


Pender's lone lead of the match came in the 2nd set when the Pendragons went up 11-10.


The Pendragons were led by Ashley Ostrand, who had a match-high 11 kills. 


Pender is back in action on Thursday as the Pendragons (3-6) travel to Wakefield to take on the Trojans (3-11).


Wakefield lost 3-0 at Howells-Dodge Tuesday night.


The Trojans beat Pender 2-0 at the Northeast Nebraska Classic in Pender on Thursday, September 3rd.


I feel like the Pendragons can get payback this time around, but the match being on the road in Wakefield doesn't make things easy by any means.


Pender has to come out ready to rock and roll Thursday night.


The Pendragons have to play with a lot of fire, energy, spunk, tenacity, grit, toughness, passion, and pride.


Pender has to to play hard the entire time, and go out there and give it their all come Thursday night.


The Pendragons have to execute in all facets of the game and play good Volleyball.

The Knights won set one 25-21, set two 25-18, and set three 25-22.

Adi Meyer and Cameryn Bellar each had 9 kills to lead the Gators.

Good solid, strong effort from Wisner-Pilger, but it simply wasn't meant to be on this night.

The Gators (3-5) entertain North Bend Central (8-4) at home Thursday night.

The Tigers swept Logan View/Scribner-Snyder and Stanton 2-0 at the Stanton Triangular Tuesday night.

Wisner-Pilger has to come out and play a great match Thursday night, and play in Coach Groth's memory.

The Gators have to come out swinging and fighting, and must be amped, jacked, psyched, and fired up for this one.

Wisner-Pilger has to come out and put forth a great effort Thursday night, and play superb Volleyball.

I feel like the Gators have been competitive so far this season, but something is missing this year.

Wisner-Pilger has struggled, but there's a lot of season left.

The Gators have to rally around one another and play great Volleyball Thursday night.

Wisner-Pilger has to have unity and be United as one.

The Gators have to come out with some spunk and attitude Thursday night, and play like they mean it.

The Gators fell 3-0 at Oakland-Craig this past Thursday night.

Wisner-Pilger has struggled so far this year, but the Gators always play tough.

The Tigers have to be ready to play a good match, a lot like they did on Tuesday.

North Bend Central has to go into Wisner and take care of business come Thursday night.

I fully expect the Tigers to do just that too.

North Bend Central is a good, quality team year in and year out, much like the Gators.

It figures to be an emotional night for both teams with the loss of former Wisner-Pilger Head Coach Jean Groth and everything.

You can bet the Gators will be playing in her memory so the Tigers have to be ready.

North Bend Central has to go out there and have fun and execute as well.
