(AUDIO) Tekamah-Herman Volleyball looking to be improved from last year despite low numbers

Team: Tekamah-Herman

Mascot: Tigers

Colors: Purple and Vegas Gold

Class: C-1

Head Coach: Becky Rennerfeldt

2018 record: 4-27

Returning Starters: N/A

The Tekamah-Herman Volleyball Team is low on numbers this year as the Tigers only have 9 girls out for the team. Head Coach Becky Rennerfeldt says that has made for creative practices.

“So we don’t necessarily have a full 12 to scrimmage so my assistant coaches and I are getting our Volleyball skills all better. We’re playing with the girls everyday so we can run some 6 on 6 drills.”

Rennerfeldt says the gym atmosphere has been better this year than it was the past couple of years.

The Tigers graduated seniors Maleah Sheets, Anjoleena Hampton, Jordan Wetzel, and Sydnee Brummond last year.

Tekamah-Herman opens up the season on Thursday at home against BRLD. Rennerfeldt says it’s hard to know what to expect from the Wolverines.

“Honestly I feel like they’re a mystery to me this year because they have a new coach. And I just think that that makes a big difference on a team’s demeanor. BRLD for us has always been known as a scrappy, scrappy defensive team. But I don’t know if that stays the same with a new coach or what is really they’re going to be like.”

The Tigers fell twice to BRLD last year.

Tekamah-Herman went 4-27 last year, but was 3-3 in its last 6 matches.

Rennerfeldt adds the team was super young last year, and is young again this year.
