KEARNEY — Three high school seniors have announced plans to play volleyball for the University of Nebraska at Kearney next fall, UNK coach Rick Squiers said.
The newcomers are middle hitter Kalei Fertig from Kearney High, setter Erin Seele from Roosevelt High School in Johnstown, Colo.; and outside hitter Mari Jo “MJ” Massanet from Manhattan High School in Manhattan, Kan.
“We’re pleased with our 2012 signees. Each will bring a unique blend of skills and talents to Loper volleyball. And, in addition to fulfilling several positional needs for our program, I’m most excited about the quality of people we have joining us next fall,” Squiers said.
OMAHA - Class A No. 3-rated Omaha Burke ended the Kearney volleyball team's season with a 25-13, 25-13, 25-21 win in the Class A-4 District championship match Wednesday in Omaha.
Kearney ended its season with a 20-14 record. The 20 wins were one win shy of tying a school record.
"I'm really happy with how we did, and I think the kids really surprised some of the naysayers who all summer we're saying we weren't going to get 10 wins or weren't going to get eight wins," Kearney coach Jason Owens said. "We're disappointed we didn't get to that 21-, 22-win mark, but we're elated with the way we played to get to the 20-win mark by the end of the season."
OMAHA - Omaha Burke made good on one of its biggest volleyball goals of the season Wednesday night, qualifying for the state tournament.
The host Bulldogs will head back to state for the third consecutive year after defeating Kearney 25-13, 25-13, 25-21 in the District A-4 final. Third-ranked Burke boosted its record to 30-6 while the unranked Bearcats finish 20-14.
