    The anxious Nemaha Central Middle School volleyball team had a game on Thursday, September 20 at Nemaha Central.  The Thunder 8th grade teams are undefeated on the season and the 7th grade teams have lost one match. The Thunder team was excited about playing because this was their second to last regular season game until the Big 7 League Tournaments.

    The NC eighth grade A team was ready for another win. Although they were undefeated, the Thunder had previously struggled on some of the basics of serving and serve receive. The girls wanted to get back to their old ways of having amazing games and that’s just what they did. The Thunder team started off the first set very strong with some serving aces and quite a few pass, set, and hit plays giving them a win in the first set 25-8. The Thunder wanted to continue their old routine of being a very strong offensive team and decided to set the ball up for some more kills against the Bluejays. The Thunder’s serving was great, which led them to a victory in the second set, 25-14. In the third set, the Thunder’s A team stayed on a roll winning 15-6.

    Ella Larkin said, “ We played amazing against Sabetha. Our team wasn’t really playing well before that and so it’s nice to have our “old” team back.”

    Next up was the eighth grade B team, who were wanting a victory just like the A team. The Thunder girls started off very shaky and barely managed to get the ball over the net. The serving wasn’t that great which caused the first set to be close. The Thunder girls managed to hold on to win the close set, 25-23. The Thunder learned from their mistakes and was able to get a few pass, set, and hit plays as well as some great serving aces to get a big win over the Bluejays 25-8. The Thunder team won the third set but had to go an extra point for the victory, 16-14.

    Going on at the same time as eighth grade A team, the seventh grade A team was playing their match of volleyball. The seventh graders started off the set with an advantage since the Bluejays were not able to handle the Thunder offense very well. The first set finished with the Thunder team victorious, 25-16. In the second set, the Thunder team was pumped and ready to show Sabetha what they were really made of. The Thunder offense was just as good as the first set, and the passing was right on which gave the Thunder the win in the second set, 25-10. The next set went a little downhill, but NC managed to pull through. A Thunder player even blocked a ball to add to the excitement of the game. Sabetha couldn’t handle the Thunder hits which gave the seventh grade A team another win for the night. The score for the third set was 16-14, Thunder.

    “We did really good against Sabetha, and it was a fun experience playing the high school’s rivals too,” said Alyssa Frye.

    After the seventh grade A team was the seventh grade B team match. The Thunder started off strong with serves that were unbelievably good. They worked very hard as a team, which helped them out in the first set. Sabetha was not able to keep up with the Thunder. The first set score was 25-11 with the Thunder team winning. The second set was just as good as the first one. The Thunder had amazing tips that the Bluejays couldn’t cover. The Thunder girls also passed the ball well, which led them to win the second set, 25-11 also. The third set was not off to a good start for the Thunder, but the Thunder girls managed to get a hold of things and regain the lead. NC tried their hardest and wanted to win the third set and that’s what they did. The Thunder team ended up winning the third set with a score of 15-12. The NC Thunder volleyball teams had an amazing night and season so far and they hope to keep it up the rest of the season.
