The Lady Warriors dropped a pair of close matches Tuesday night against Fullerton and Burwell.
Neligh-Oakdale fought back in the second set and nearly forced a third, falling 31-29 in the second.
Neligh-Oakdale also put up quite a fight against Burwell, coming back to win the second set, but falling just short in the third.
Coach Hannah Hoefer said she is extremely proud of her team. "I love coaching this team. They have so much fight, so much passion," she said.
The coach said there are several young players on the court who had very little varsity experience but are playing well, which is encouraging for the rest of the season.
'They're getting this feeling of the adrenaline and they're learning how to deal with it," Hoefer said. "It's going to be very useful at the end of the season when it really matters."
The Lady Warriors will be back in action on Tuesday when they host Randolph.
