Coming into last night’s showdown between Scottsbluff and Gering the teams had only played a total of 11 matches combined.
With Scottsbluff High School serving as the backdrop it was the off-quarantine Bearcats rolling to a three set sweep over their rivals by the scores of 25-21, 25-20, and 25-20.
It had been nearly three weeks since their last match back on September 3rd after the Bearcats had to pause things to get Covid taken care of.
Meanwhile for Gering, they’d been off since the 10th of this month due to simply not having any matches scheduled.
Emma Foote was named the Taco John’s Player of the Game for Scottsbluff with double digit kills and a well rounded game. Great to see because Foote has dealt with so many injuries over her high school career, so hoping she’s got a healthy senior year in store for herself and her teammates in all her sports.
Carleigh Pszanka took home the player of the game honors for Gering last night.
