Kerkman and Pockharel are looking up at the ball with Kerkman getting ready to spike the ball.. Elkhorn South had hit it over but it got saved. From that, Pockharel set the sike up. “I think the win was something that we really needed. We had been losing for a while,” Kerkman said. “ We had played them before and last time they beat us and we had to beat them this time.”

The Wildcats were able to secure their first win early in the season. Coaches saw a lot of improvement from the first 2 losses to Millard South and Omaha North. “We didnt really do anything outstanding - everyone just did their job on each individual play,” said coach Kirk Peterson. “In terms of improvement - fundamentals - games are won when teams are fundamentally sound - line up correctly and know and complete your assignment in all three phases of the game.”

Early in the game, the Spartans took the lead and gave the Wildcats a complication. This made Millard West adjust their gameplay to stop Lincoln East’s shots. “Their best player started out scoring the first seven points,” coach William Morrison said. “Most games start off close in the first quarter, so we weren’t worried. We made an adjustment to how we guarded him, and it seemed to work.”

The varsity team strikes their first pose in their Tumbling, Non-Building routine. For their first competition of the season being completely virtual, the girls look forward to hopefully being able to compete in person. “I think it makes it a little harder to get a feel for what a comp day is really like, especially for the freshman,” senior Delaney Cutler said. “Luckily on the showcase night, we had a good amount of people in the crowd yelling with us which really helped us out.”
