The Boone Central/Newman Grove volleyball team saw its 2013 season come to an end Monday night at Neligh, dropping a 3-0 decision to Mid-State Conference rival Norfolk Catholic in the C1-8 Sub-District Tournament.
The Cardinals and Lady Knights battled back and forth throughout three close sets, rarely able to open large leads. Catholic did capture the crucial points in the stretch of each set, however, to take the 25-22, 25-17, 25-21 victory.
It was a frustrating night for Boone Central/Newman Grove, which had finished its regular season with a victory, then placed sixth in the rugged Mid-State Conference tournament last week with competitive play.
While the Cardinals never found consistent rhythm Monday night, Coach Susan Roberts said it wasn’t for lack of effort.
“We just couldn’t get ourselves in system consistently during this match. We made some great plays at times, then struggled to get our attacks over the net at others,” Roberts commented. “We played with good effort the entire match and this whole season. We made progress as a program, regardless of the win/loss record, and we are proud of the team effort given this season.”
