Sterling rallies back to win 3rd place in Class B Division

BEATRICE - The Sterling Lady Jets were the #2 seed heading into the 2017 Class B Mudecas Volleyball Tournament and came home with the 3rd place plaque last week.

Sterling vs. JCC

The Lady Jets faced the #7 seeded Johnson County Central Lady Thunderbirds on Monday, September 11th and won in two sets, 25-11, 25-17.

Head Coach Stan Karr commented, "I felt we played well in the first set especially. The second set we lost some focus and didn’t play as well. Overall as a team we did well. Team stats were: Serving 11 aces and 90% serving – 5 errors serving; we hit as a team .191 with Colby hitting .231; we had 25 serve receive receptions with only 2 errors; we had only 1 solo block but only 2 blocking errors; we had 8 digs with only 1 error. As one can see we didn’t have a lot of unforced errors which means we didn’t give them a lot of free points, which makes it much easier to win games."
