Goessel volleyball claims championship at Tescott

Sports writer

The Goessel High School volleyball team dominated Saturday at the Tescott Invitational.

 The Bluebirds lost no matches or games in their run for the first place trophy.

The Bluebirds defeated Lucas-Luray 25-6, 25-12. Ell-Saline, the only league school the Bluebirds faced in the tournament, put up a fight, but the Bluebirds prevailed with scores of 25-15 and 25-20.

Goessel defeated Tescott 25-14, 25-8, and Wilson 25-20, 25-16.

In the championship match, Goessel defeated Osborne 25-12, 25-13.

“Today was about staying consistent,” GHS head coach Crysta Guhr said.

The Bluebirds picked up their fourth league victory of this young season Sept. 16, tying their total of four league wins all of last year. 

Goessel avenged a loss by defeating Remington in the Heart of America League contest at Inman. 

The Broncos had defeated the Bluebirds in the invitational tournament at Goessel the week before.

Goessel came out ahead 25-19, 25-22.

Against Inman, the Bluebirds were sharp. 

“The match with Inman was the best volleyball match I have ever been a part of as a coach,” Guhr said. 

Inman ended up winning the match, but every game was decided by two points.

Goessel lost the first game 26-24, but won game two 25-23.

The Bluebirds lost the third match 25-23.

 The offense was very balanced.

Aspen Frey had 15 kills, Kendra Flaming 14, Rinda Duerksen 13, and Karis Janzen 13.

Jessica Goertzen had 46 assists and Karina Harvey led the team with 26 digs.

Amy Brubaker and Goertzen were both 100 percent when serving.

The Bluebirds are now 4-1 in league play and 14-4 overall.

Goessel was home with Moundridge and Ell Saline on Tuesday, but information was not available before press time.
