Scribner-Snyder and Oakland-Craig meet in High School Volleyball action on Thursday on 107.9 the Bull. Scribner-Snyder Head Coach Shelly Schulenberg says there were positives and negatives to take away from Tuesday’s losses to Cedar Bluffs and Howells-Dodge.
“Well I learned a little bit of the good and a little bit of the bad. The bad news is we didn’t pass the ball very well and so therefore we can’t run our offense very well. But when we did pass the ball I saw a lot of positive results with some good swings.”
The Trojans are 0-2 on the season while the Knights are 2-3.
Oakland-Craig Head Coach Chelsey Quigley says her team started out slow, but got things going in the Northeast Nebraska Classic over the weekend.
“Yeah I would say that we got off to a little bit slower start than we would have liked, but I feel like we made a lot of progress in those two days, and we kind of found a little bit of a groove. And some girls stepped up, which we needed, and so I’m hoping that that just keeps carrying on over and we just keep improving on the year with that.”
Quigley says it would be a big deal for her team to even up their record at 3-3.
“I think it would be a big confidence boost for us. And I think it’s very important for the girls to at least keep improving. And that’s the important thing. So wins and losses we would like to see more wins on that column so hopefully we can do that.”
Schulenberg says her team has hit well to come out on top.
“If we just play smart ball, and I just told the girls that it’s not all about power when you’re hitting the ball, it’s about placement. And they just need to really be smart when they’re hitting the ball so that they don’t make the easy mistakes and give away the easy point.”
First serve between the Knights and Trojans is set for 7:00 p.m. in Oakland.
