     2015-06-11      By Terry Gaston    sports@geringcitizen.com
Players for the West Nebraska All-Star volleyball match and football game on Saturday have been busy in preparation for the annual contests in Scottsbluff.

The 31st annual volleyball match will start at 2 p.m. at Western Nebraska Community College’s Cougar Palace, while the 37th annual football game will kick off at 7 p.m. at Bearcat Stadium.
The West roster for the volleyball match includes two recent Gering graduates in Leah Newman and Kaylee Spreier, who helped lead the Bulldogs to a district championship in the fall.

Also for the West are three recent graduates who in addition played in last Saturday’s Panhandle Prep All-Star Basketball Games. Representing Mitchell are Kady Lower and McKenna Zulkoski, along with Chellani Parriott of Bayard.

Coaches for the West volleyball All-Stars are Jodie Schuller of Chase County and Angie Hiemstra of Alliance.
Saturday night’s football team includes Gering lineman Alex Closson along with a trio of players from Scottsbluff’s 10-2, Class B semifinal team from last fall: Stetson Anderson, Jackson Hinze and Tristan Donelson.
Bryce Hargens of Bayard, Matthew Hessler of Morrill and Garrett Sterkel of Mitchell also will play on the West team.
The West’s coaching staff is headed by Ryan Smith of Hershey. The West assistant coaches are Randy Heimstra – who led Hemingford to the Class D-1 state championship last season – along with Nick Kuxhausen of Kimball and C.J. Bach of Chadron.
Advance tickets are on sale at four Scottsbluff businesses. A single game ticket to the volleyball match or football game is $6 for adults and $4 for children ages 12 and younger if purchased in advance. A two-game ticket is available for $9 for adults and $6 for children ages 12 and younger.

Tickets can be purchased in advance at Sports Village and Athlete’s Edge in the Monument Mall, the sports Racquet at 171 Broadway and Scottsbluff Screenprinting and Engraving at 1813 Broadway.
Ticket prices increase by $1 if purchased at the gate on game day. A portion of the proceeds from the West Nebraska All-Star games will benefit Scotts Bluff County charities.
