Goessel volleyball season ends

Contributing writer

For four Goessel High School seniors, it was not the way they wanted the 2012 volleyball season to end. The Bluebirds went into sub-state with 27 wins and also knowing that one of the best teams in the state was in their sub-state. So the Bluebirds had to be at the top of their game to advance to the tournament at Hays.

Goessel came out in the semi-final match with a crushing victory, beating the home team Flint Hills High School, 25-6 and 25-9. The win advanced the Bluebirds to the championship match against Olpe, immediately following their win over Flint Hills. Goessel lost the first set 25-19, and ran out of offensive weapons in the second set losing 25-14.

The Bluebirds finished the season with a 29-10 record. Seniors who finished their career at Goessel were Jessica Harvey, setter; Tia Goertzen, hitter; Alex Hiebert, middle hitter; and Johanna Hoffman, libero.
