The Gering volleyball squad played a home triangular against the Gordon-Rushville Mustangs and the Chadron Cardinals last Thursday. Gering earned a 2-set win against Gordon-Rushville and 2 set to 1 set loss against Chadron. Gering traveled to Ogallala on Saturday and had a three- set loss against the Indians.

The Gering Lady Bulldogs posted a win in the match against Gordon-Rushville in two sets 25-18 and 25-10. Senior Leah Newman had 1 kill, 1 ace, 1 block, and 3 digs. Senior Brooklyn Perez had 1 kill, and 5 digs. Senior Mikayla Kreider had 1 ace and 5 digs. Senior Kaylee Spreier had 9 kills, 1 block, and 7 digs. Sophomore Joslyn Olsson had 1 kill. Junior Lauren Shaul had 2 kills and 2 digs.

Junior Allie Boggs had 7 kills, 2 aces, and 5 digs. Junior Zoe Van Dyke had 3 digs. Junior Jade Riedel had 1 kill, and 1 dig. Junior Abby Kiesel had 4 kills, 1 block, and 6 digs.

Gering next faced the Cardinals. Gering lost the match in three sets with Gering taking the second set. Chadron won the first set 25-15, Gering won the second set 29-27, and Chadron took the third set 25-21.

Spreier delivered an amazing 19 kills, Shaul and Kiesel had 4, Boggs had 3, Perez and Riedel had 2, Newman and Olsson had 1. Aces saw Boggs and Perez with 2, and Shaul with 1. Blocks had Kiesel with 2, Spreier and Shaul with 1. Digs Spreier had 11, Newman had 9, Shaul had 8, Perez had 7, Junior Sara Schwartzkopf had 5, Van Dyke and Kiesel had 4, Boggs had 2, and Olsson had 1.

On Saturday Gering traveled to Ogallala for a match against the Ogallala Indians. Ogallala won all three sets 25-14, 25-11, 25-19. Kills were made by Spreier 9, Boggs 2, Riedel 2, Kiesel 1, and Olsson 1. Aces were made by Boggs 4. Blocks were made by Newman 1, Riedel 1, and Spreier 2. Digs were made by Spreier 5, Newman 4, Perez 2, Kiesel 2, Shaul 1, and Boggs 1.

“It was not a very good match for us,” said Coach David Lashley. “The players played hard and we had some good moments but overall Ogallala simply outplayed us. I feel as a coach that I did not have the players prepared for this match and I am not doing a very good job of progressing their skills. I have to do a better job of teaching the game.”

The Bulldogs are now 6-7 on the season and will travel to Sidney today for a triangular against Sidney and Kimball. On Saturday G-Town will invade Wyoming to play a road game in Torrington and then on Monday Gering goes to Cheyenne East.
