Team: Logan View/Scribner-Snyder
Colors: Blue and Gold
Head Coach: Brad Schlegel (3rd Season) (19-43 record)
2018 record: 14-17
Returning Starters: 4
There’s reason for optimism for the Logan View/Scribner-Snyder Volleyball Team this year as the Raiders saw vast improvement last year, going 14-17. Head Coach Brad Schlegel says the girls are changing the culture and buying into what they’re being taught.
“Something that I tell the girls, and having a good strong season puts us there that you have to play confident, and you can’t play being afraid to make mistakes. You have to play telling yourself that the best outcome is going to happen. And I think actually seeing that work a little bit last season has made a lot of the team buy into that mindset, that a lot of it is mind over matter. And it’s not just what’s happening physically, but it’s also what’s happening mentally.”
The Raiders return four starters from last year, including setter Reagan Klein (5’3, SR), outside hitter Emily Lewin (5’6, SR), Tyler Christanson (5’5, SR S/RS), and outside hitter Dream Daugherty (5’8 SO).
Elizabeth Hull (5’3, SR) is expected to start at Libero for the Raiders.
Others likely to contribute include Fairbury Transfer Adrian Kroeker (6’0, SR MH), Kristal Svehla (6’0, JR MH), Nia Meyer (5’5, JR OH/DS), Stormy Poast (5’2, JR L), and Leah Kiethley (5’3, SO S).
Logan View/Scribner Snyder lost Taylor Ruwe (5’6, SR OH) to an ACL tear in the offseason.
Schlegel says losing Ruwe is a big blow, but the team still has a lot of great players. “Our team returns a lot of experience this year. Losing Taylor this summer, hurts us a lot but we have a lot of upper classmen. We have a lot of solid players but will need everyone reaching their potential to reach our goals.”
Schlegel says to get some wins racked up last year and have some success and play in tight and competitive games served as a lot of growth for his team.
Logan View/Scribner-Snyder Volleyball begins the season on August 29th with a home Triangular against Boys Town and Omaha Brownell Talbot. Schlegel says both opponents present a different challenge.
“Boys Town you never know quite what to expect there, they have a lot of turnover in their roster from year-to-year… you never know what to expect from them. And Brownell Talbot has been on the upswing for the past couple of years as well. So we just want to come out with a good solid effort, and take care of the small things, and then know that success comes when you take care of those small things, and bigger, greater things will happen.”
As far as the East Husker Conference goes, Schlegel feels his team could finish in the top 4 of the Conference Tournament.
