Colors: Purple and Vegas Gold
Head Coach: Becky Rennerfeldt (8th Season)
2017 record: 18-14
Returning Starters: 5
The Tekamah-Herman Volleyball Team brings back 5 starters from last year’s 18-14 team.
They include Anna Wakehouse (5’8, JR S/OH), Sydney Brummond (5’6, SR L), Maleah Sheets (5’10, SR MH), Anjolena Hampton (5’5, SR DS), and Jordan Wetzel (5’8, SR MH).
Head Coach Becky Rennerfeldt says there are only 13 girls out for the team this year, and 6 of them are freshmen.
Big losses from last year include setter Caty Gross and middle hitter Marin Jetensky. Rennerfeldt says there are some holes to fill this year. “Lost our starting setter from the last 4 seasons so trying to find someone to take that spot. We also lost our Kill leaders from last year so need someone else to fill her shoes. Although it looks like we have five girls with experience, four of them only fill up two positions so will need younger girls to step up.”
Rennerfeldt says the team played in the Bergan League in June, and went to the Wayne State and Omaha Team Camps this summer.
Rennerfeldt feels the team feels great about last year, saying the team probably outplayed what people expected them to do. She adds defense will be the strength of the team this year.
Tekamah-Herman opens up the season with Wisner-Pilger and Lutheran High Northeast in the Northeast Nebraska Volleyball Classic at Wisner-Pilger on Thursday.
Rennerfeldt hopes the team can find their way this season. “I expect Stanton to be probably one of the top teams that we play this year, but hopefully there’s enough teams on that schedule that we can kind of compete with that our girls can feel good about where we’re at.”
The Tigers are in Sub-District C1-6 with North Bend Central, Logan View/Scribner-Snyder, West Point-Beemer, and Arlington.
Rennerfeldt feels the sub-district is wide open.
