Eagles drop NCC volleyball tourney opener

AHS plays without senior standout


Playing without one of its senior standouts, the Arlington High School volleyball team dropped its Nebraska Capitol Conference (NCC) Tournament opener at Raymond Central on Tuesday night.
The fifth-seeded Eagles fell 25-13, 25-14 and 25-13 to the No. 4 Mustangs, falling to 14-9 this season. Raymond Central improved to 14-8.
Coach Katarina Nelson confirmed the Eagles played the match without injured senior Kailynn Gubbels, who set the school record for kills in a match a week earlier against the Mustangs. The mark stands at 29 kills.
AHS led early during both the first and third sets Tuesday. It went ahead 10-9 during the third when setter Janessa Wakefield set up fellow senior Chase Andersen for a kill, but the advantage didn't hold.
The Eagles were scheduled to play a second NCC Tournament match Thursday, but will next play next Tuesday at home against Syracuse.
