For our volleyball Game of the Week, we'll be traveling to Bloomfield for the Knox County Tournament. Niobrara/Verdigre, Crofton, Creighton, Bloomfield, Santee and Wausa will all take the court looking to prove themselves as the top team in Knox County.
Why is this the Game of the Week? With the season winding down, we already have a very good idea of what each team is capable of. Creighton and Crofton come in as two of the top teams in the area, while Niobrara/Verdigre, Santee, Bloomfield and Wausa all have struggled in recent weeks. However, this tournament gives teams a chance for bragging rights against their neighbors, so expect an upset or two.
Who is going to be there? Wausa (3-14), Bloomfield (1-16), Crofton (15-4), Creighton (11-4), Niobrara/Verdigre (4-16), Santee (1-19)
Players to watch: Bloomfield - Leah Poppe, Senior, Leads team in kills, aces, blocks and digs
Crofton - Kelsey Sanger, Senior, 194 kills, 52 aces, 41 blocks, 285 digs
Creighton - Kirsten Adams, 92 kills, 73 blocks
