OHS Volleyball Season 2017

The Ogallala Volleyball 2017 Season

By Maddie Ketcham and Kabriel Fine.

The Ogallala Indian volleyball season started out rough, but they came back to finish
strong with a record of 24 wins against 10 losses. After losing 7 seniors from last years
graduating class, the 2017 team was lead by three seniors: Diana Reed, Cassie Coggins, and
Mikah Hoppens. Each of these girls have been playing for the Ogallala Indians since their
freshman year. “I have been playing volleyball ever since I was about 7 or 8 years old,” said
Diana Reed. She’s been committed to volleyball for a long time, and she plans to continue her
volleyball career in college, but she does not know where yet.
Coach Morgan is very proud of his Lady Indians and is always looking forward to an
awesome season. “My team is a hardworking group of athletes, and I am very pleased with their
work ethic and attitude.” Coach Morgan adds. Their biggest rival is usually North Platte or
Minden. Coach Morgan has inspired Ogallala’s young athletes for 44 years, and he loves
watching them grow and improve while playing the game they love. He is a leader in this
community and has a passion for what he does. Steve Morgan obviously has a gift, and he plans
on using it for the long run. When he does decide to step down, we know it will be nearly
impossible for anyone to fill his shoes.
Coach Dakota Clough has been coaching our freshman team for three years. “This
freshman team is unique in the fact that they all have special strengths that will help the program
in the future. As part of the coaching staff, we really focus on serving. We feel as though that is
one of the most important components of the game. If your team can get the other team out of
sync, the chance of winning the game increases. That being said, serving is one of the things this
year's freshman group does very well. At the beginning of the season, our serving was rough, but
their hard work in practice has paid off, and now serving is one of our strongest skills.” The
freshman team finished the season with a 12 and 1 record.
To finish the season, the ladies they beat Cozad 3-1 and Gothenburg 3-0 at sub-districts,
but fell to Omaha Concordia at districts to end a great season. These ladies gave their best and
finished the season very strong. We are all proud of the girls and what they have accomplished.
