Volleyball Team Wins Conference Tournament
On Thursday, October 15, and Saturday, October 17, the Nebraska Christian Volleyball team competed in the Goldenrod Conference Tournament at Nebraska Christian and Heartland Lutheran. In the opening match, played in the NC gym, the Lady Eagles took on the Lady Tigers from Palmer. Nebraska Christian won the match in three sets, advancing to semi-final play at Heartland Lutheran. In the semi-finals, the Lady Eagles took the court against Fullerton. The Lady Eagles soared to another three-set victory, moving them on to the Goldenrod Conference Finals where they would battle Humphrey St. Francis for the title. Nebraska Christian would prevail in three sets, bringing home a second straight Goldenrod Conference Tournament Championship.
So far, the Nebraska Christian team has had a good season, and the team has been improving each game they play. The team’s current record is 21-4, and the regular season wraps up tonight with a triangular at Broken Bow.
Nebraska Christian has four teams in its sub-district, each with over 20 wins, so the sub-district should be very competitive. Sub-district play begins Monday, November 2. Head Coach Tonya Ostrand said, “I would love to see the team fully trust in their training, trust their teammates, and most importantly trust the Lord.” Hopefully, the team will be able to carry this momentum through sub-district and district play and on to the state tournament.
