Colors: Orange and White
Head Coach: Chelsey Boden
2018 record: 13-19
Returning Starters: N/A
The Oakland-Craig Volleyball Team returns quite a few players from last year’s team that went 13-19. Head Coach Chelsey Boden.
“We have Josie Richards and Bailey Helzer, Mya Guzinski, and we also have Makenna Pearson, Rheanna Paul, Ashten Rennerfeldt. And then we have Kennedy Benne coming back, who missed the year last year due to a knee injury. So we have quite a few returners this year so it should be exciting.”
Boden says the offseason was good as most of the girls were able to make most of their summer camps and leagues this summer.
Seniors lost to graduation last year include Dacey Nelson, Natalia McNeill, Jena Gardeman, and Aileen Quintero.
Oakland-Craig hopes to be one of the top teams in the East Husker Conference this season. Boden says the conference should be really good again this year.
“We’ve had a really rock solid conference these last few years. And I think that’s still going to be the same. A lot of challengers out there. And I really look forward to seeing how the conference falls this year.”
The Knights open up the season at Howells-Dodge on August 29th.
