    The Nemaha Central Thunder volleyball team played four matches against the Silver Lake Eagles on Thursday, September 29. The seventh grade A-team and the eighth grade B-team played the first games against the SLMS volleyball team that night.

     The seventh grade A-team started off with a great serve by Ellie Mady. Silver Lake played the volleyball straight back over and SLMS got the point. The bench did a great job of cheering on their teammates as they tried hard for every point. The NCMS volleyball team had some great passes, sets, and hits throughout the game, but it wasn't enough. The seventh grade A-team ended up losing both sets with a score of 25-5. 

    While the seventh grade A-team was playing, the eighth grade B-team was also playing. The first set of the eighth grade B-team game was a close one. The NCMS volleyball team played well in the first set to get the win with a score of 25-21. The second set wasn't as close as the Thunder was defeated with a score of 10-25. As the third set got started, both teams were anxious to see how the match would turn out. The Thunder ended up losing the third set with a score of 8-15. The NCMS eighth grade B-team lost the match against Silver Lake.

    "We worked hard and played good and that's all that matters,"  said eighth grade B-team player, Desiree Garner.

    The seventh grade  A-team finished their game first, so that meant that the seventh grade  B-team would start their match next. The team played well but the first set did not end in favor of the Thunder as they lost the first set with a score of 20-25. The Thunder fought harder in the second set to try to play a third set. The NC team succeeded with the second set ending with a score of 25-13. The third set was very exciting and the NC bench was cheering on their teammates as loud as they could so that they could get the win. The set ended and the NC team lost a close set with a score of 13-15. 

     After the seventh grade B-team game was over, there was still part of the eighth grade  A-team match going on. The match was very intense throughout all of the sets. The first set wasn't what the Thunder had in mind as they lost with a score of 15-25.  The Thunder did not give up and went into the second set with the mentality of winning and did just that with a score of 25-23.  The NC volleyball team made it to a third set and it was a very exciting last set. The score was very close throughout the set, but NC couldn't quite get the win.  The third set ended with a score of 11-15.

    "Even though we didn't win, we played hard, and it made us better," said Nyah Heinen, eighth grade A-team player.
