For the majority of the first game against Serena, Mooseheart’s girls volleyball team not only had the lead but was in position to challenge the favored Huskers, before the hosts rallied for a 25-17 victory. Serena opened the second game in much more control and finished a 25-17, 25-13 victory in the title match of the Class 1A Serena Regional.
The Ramblers jumped to leads of 5-1 and 10-3 before Serena got its offense moving thanks to some solid serving from Suriah Randolph, a strong defense and just enough hitting to keep the Huskers scrambling.
“It’s always good to start the way we did,” Mooseheart assistant volleyball coach Lindsay Burcham said. “We had some difficult times, but then we got back into it and the girls brought it back.”
The second game was entirely different to the first. The Huskers worked the ball to their heavy hitters, who pounded the ball toward Mooseheart’s defense. From an early 10-4 lead, Serena pushed its advantage to close the match with a two-game sweep.
“Any time you have multiple people hitting at you, it gets difficult,” Burcham said. “The girls stuck with it and tried their hardest and gave it their best.”
Four seniors graduate from Mooseheart’s program: Jordan Plummer, Omoyi Omana, Kumba Mahoney and Tatiana Rodriguez. The majority of the squad and starting lineup returns, however. In fact, the bulk of this year’s team were freshmen and sophomores.
“We are going to say ‘good-bye’ to a few, but we have a lot coming back. I told the girls that as long as they put in the hard work and make the effort, they can do it,” Burcham said.
