Despite having an 0-4 week that dropped Boone Central’s season record to 0-5, Coach Susan Roberts sees her young Cardinal volleyball team making noticeable improvement.
“We are on the brink of breaking through as a team,” Roberts stated. “We are coming out aggressively in each match and playing with more confidence.”
Boone Central began its week with a trip to West Point to face Mid-State foe Guardian Angels (formerly Central Catholic). The hosts scored a 25-19, 25-18, 27-25 victory in varsity competition.
We put up a tough, competitive fight against a state-ranked team,” said Roberts. “Once again, we had a great serving match, 91 percent with 10 aces.”
Boone Central hosted a big eight-team tournament Saturday and dropped three tough decisions. Crofton defeated the Cardinals 25-20, 25-18 in round once, Central City took a 25-23, 25-14 victory in consolation play and Tekamah-Herman won the 7th-place match 21-25, 25-18, 25-10.
“I felt we got our serve receive game going pretty well in all the matches, but we failed to execute on the attack at key moments when games were close,” noted Roberts. “We played all three teams tough and put ourselves in position to win numerous sets.
“We’re a young team and need to learn how to handle ourselves in close situations and make smart, aggressive plays.
“I have nothing but confidence in our team,” she added. “We are improving in every aspect of play, we just need to get it all to come together.”
