The Norfolk volleyball team took the confidence it gained by going 3-1 in its own invitational tournament Saturday into Tuesday’s match with Grand Island. The Panthers gave the home crowd plenty to cheer about with a dominating straight-sets victory, 25-17, 25-17, 25-12.

Playing in front of members of Grand Island's 2002 Class A state championship boys basketball team, the current edition of the Islanders put together an impressive first half Friday against Lincoln Northeast.

Grand Island may not have had its best offensive night Friday against North Platte, but ferocious defense and a huge advantage on the boards allowed the Islanders to take a 63-38 victory.
