High energy practices, staying consistent, individual work, and teamwork is how volleyball coach Michelle Blake would describe volleyball. The team has 38 kids out, with the varsity team having nine wins and six losses. “We started on a really high note, but now we’re kinda looking to get more consistent and continue to play at that high level all the time,” Blake said. “(The season is looking) Promising. We’re just getting started. We’re only a few dates in and we have a lot of volleyball still left to play so things are looking really promising for our girls.”
Over the summer, the team went to some summer leagues in Council Bluffs, played early in the morning, put a lot of skill work in, and worked on individual work. “You get stronger, you get better individually in the summertime because once your season starts it’s too late for individual work. It’s time for teamwork. They put a lot of individual work in over the summer and it’s really starting to connect about what we’re doing in the season,” Blake said.
The team played at home on September 14. “I look forward to opening on the 14th at home and having a really good crowd and just having them show everybody what we do as a team. Not just necessarily as just individuals because we’re a super dynamic group,” Blake said.
