Throughout the summer, The World-Herald will prepare you for the high school football season with a story previewing a new team or teams each day. This week, Class C-1 is featured, with Nos. 10-5 today.

Despite having defeated Ogallala twice already, Gothenburg entered Thursday’s C1-11 Sub-District Final with something to prove. The Swedes did so, draining nine 3-pointers in a resounding 61-38 victory at Sutherland High School on Thursday.

Columbus Scotus wasn’t at full strength last month when they lost in two sets to Class C No. 1 Kearney Catholic. Now the Shamrocks have Kimberly Stutzman, who teamed with Maeghan Pieper for 27 kills in Thursday night’s three-set sweep of Ogallala in the opening round of the C-1 state tournament at Lincoln North Star.

It was déjà vu all over again as Ogallala was eliminated from the first round of the Class C-1 playoffs after a 26-17 loss to Wahoo Neumann Friday. The loss marks the fourth consecutive year the Indians (6-3) have made a first-round exit, but despite the disappointment, Ogallala head coach Jeff McBride is proud of his team.

North Platte’s block dominated a sweep of Ogallala on Tuesday, and Olivia Nicholson and Allison Kuenle combined for 29 kills for the Bulldogs (11-1) in the 25-11, 25-21, 25-18 win.

A couple years prior to the start of her freshman year of high school, it was decision time for Drew Gieschen. “Going into seventh grade, my mom wanted me to do cross country instead of volleyball,” she said. “I had some friends in volleyball, but I decided to listen to my mom and give cross country a try.”
