Goessel Volleyball young, but talented

The Goessel High School volleyball team may be young, but they have a very experienced coach. Crysta Guhr was an assistant coach at the school for 6 years and has been head coach there for 15 years.

So she knows that a team full of young athletes does not mean anything except they will have to have to regroup.

“With the loss of five seniors from last year’s team, and only one senior on this year’s team, the Lady Bluebirds will be looking to new leadership and trying to fill roles. The 2019 team is young, with only five upperclassmen, but should compete well in the Wheat State League again,” said Guhr.

One things that will help the ladies is that they will be able to compete against worthy opponents both in league and not in league which will give them a vast amount of experience.

“League teams to contend for the title include Rural Vista, Little River, and Herington. Non-League competition for the Bluebirds will be tough, with matches against Sedgwick, Olpe, Moundridge, Wabaunsee, and Inman,” said Guhr.

This tough schedule should help determine whether this young Bluebird squad can compete for a post-season run.

The Bluebirds have a strong chance to do well, especially with a seasoned coach who clearly believes in her players so strongly.

COMING— The Lady Bluebirds started their season off hosting a triangular match at home on Tuesday, hosting Ell-Saline, Haven and Herrington. They play at 4 p.m. on Sept 10 at Centre against Centre and Elyria.
