With a third of the volleyball season to go, Neligh-Oakdale topped last year’s win total on Thursday night.
The Warriors split a triangular in Emerson-Hubbard to keep their record even at 8-8 and improve upon the seven-win season from last year.
Neligh-Oakdale opened the triangular with a 22-25, 25-7, 25-23 win over the Pirates before dropping a three-set heartbreaker to Pender. The Warriors fell 19-25, 25-14, 25-20.
The Warriors will be back at home for the second - and the last - home match of the season on Tuesday. Neligh-Oakdale will host Creighton and celebrate parents’ night.
