Neligh-Oakdale picked up a 3-1 win Thursday night to celebrate homecoming to break a four-game skid.
The Warriors dropped the first set before sweeping the next three to win 19-25, 25-16, 25-18, 25-20.
"We played well together," said Warrior coach Hannah Hoefer. "We talked before the game about team chemistry, and we kind of lacked that in our last game. We found it tonight."
Junior Kinsley Klabenes led the Warriors with six kills and eight digs. Senior Kelsey Green picked up a team-high 15 digs. Natilee Payne and Danae Smith had six and five set assists, respectively.
Hoefer said the Warriors will build off of this win through more tough practices.
"We have a program set up where they compete for points at every practice, and it helps keep the practice intense," she said. "We move on from this win by continuing to practice hard."
Next up for the 3-4 Warriors is a home match against Osmond (0-7) on Tuesday, Sept. 22.
