G’burg Invite takes toll on Gering volleyball
     2016-09-23      By Staff Report    editor@geringcitizen.com
The Gering Girls Volleyball team travelled to the Harvest Festival Volleyball Invitational in Gothenburg over the weekend, and suffered six straight losses.

“We obviously had a tough weekend,” said Gering Head Coach David Lashley. “Again, while we played some good volleyball in stretches we are not playing very well over all. I can’t really say much more than I have already. Our kids are just not performing at a very high level and our confidence at a very low level. We are just a very poorly coached team.”

On Friday, September 16, Gering faced host Gothenburg in the first match, falling 16-25, 25-21, 25-19. Against Hershey, 23-25, 25-18, 26-24. In the final match of the day, St. Paul trounced Gering, 25-12, 25-15.

On Saturday, September 17, Gering’s performance failed to improve. Ogallala served the Bulldogs a wakeup call, which they couldn’t answer. The Indians downed Gering in straight sets, 25-12, 15-12. Against Kearney Catholic, Lashley’s team tried to get itself off the deck, but fell in straight sets again, 25-23, 25-12, and then followed suit against Minden, 25-23, 25-12.

Gering in a two-game home stand, faced Kimball yesterday, September 22, and meets the Alliance Bulldogs tonight at Gering High School gym.

Gering fell to 2-12 on the season after the Gothenburg tournament, and is seeking to rebound. That might be a tall order, sitting a game behind Scottsbluff in the B-8 District standings. In the six regular season matches left on its schedule, then league play matters, Gering hosts Scottsbluff on October 13, and visits Sidney on October 18.

Area prep teams:

Scottsbluff defeats Torrington (3-0) 25-18, 25-10, 25-19 on September 15.

Mitchell defeats Crawford (3-0) 25-8, 25-6, 25-6 on September 15.
