Lady Hawks Volleyball News

The Hay Springs Lady Hawks volleyball team hit the floor running on August 10th. After months apart, the team was excited to be back together practicing. This year’s team is 20 members strong and includes 9 returning letter-winners with a lot of experience and a fantastic group of underclassmen that will be asked to contribute to the team’s overall success.

The team is patiently awaiting their first competition when they will travel to Garden County to take on the Lady Eagles and the Hyannis Lady Longhorns on Tuesday, September 1st. The team also welcomes new assistant coach and teacher Mrs. Sarah Badje.

“I have high expectations for this team this year. This is our second year together and they all understand what I expect in practices and games. The sky’s the limit if they continue to work hard and play as a team.”

Come out and support your Lady Hawks!
Coach Merritt

Junior High Volleyball Wrap-up

Although our season didn’t wrap up with as many wins as the girls hoped we had a lot of wins in other ways! And a lot of the losses in the score book were some really close games that could have gone either way!

Coach Scherbarth and I had a fairly young team this year with a few girls brand new to the sport or this level of play. We spent a lot of time focusing on fundamentals and are so proud of each and every girl and the improvements that she made!

This season saw quite a few girls figure out their overhand serves, and get quite good at them! When looking beginning of the season to end we got easily double the number of set ups and hits per game. Although some didn’t result in the points going our way it was amazing to see the girls using all their skills. There were also a lot of plays where we were able to rally back and forth and keep the ball alive. We also had girls who moved into different roles from the year or years before, or even games before.

As always I will be sad to see the girls move on to the next level, but am so excited to see what they will do and am so proud of what they have accomplished! I can’t wait for Midnight Madness to get one last opportunity to coach the 8th graders.

Our team this year consisted of 8th graders; Gabby, Alexa, and Abby Nelson, 7th graders; Darian, Lilly, Kaylee, Jacey, Zahaven, Jaelyn, and 6th graders; Bo, Julia, and Mya.

Lady Hawks Volleyball News

Volleyball practice is off to a fast start. The Lady Hawks have made the most of their pre-season practices with great progress. On August 20th, the team participated in the Volleyball Jamboree in Scottsbluff. The Lady Hawks played two games against Alliance and Bayard. The format was two sets to 25 and the Lady Hawks lost both sets to Alliance and split sets with Bayard. It was a great way for the girls and coaches to get a gauge of what we need to concentrate on before our first game against Potter-Dix on Friday, August 30th. There are 15 girls on the volleyball team. Come out on Homecoming Friday and support the Lady Hawks!
