COUNCIL BLUFFS — Lewis Central’s path to a possible fifth straight state volleyball appearance might have started in the Old Market.

The Titans had a team dinner Monday in Omaha’s downtown dining and shopping area, and after they finished eating, they interacted with some street performers, and then some firemen on a fire truck in the area.

At that point, coach Mike Bond felt something.

“I thought, ‘You know what? I think they’re ready,’ ” he said. “It was just that feeling you get as a coach of, ‘This is special. This is cool again.’ I had a feeling that they were going to put it together.’’
