The Anselmo-Merna volleyball team will look to build on a 2018 season that saw them finish at 18-14. AM will have 21 players on the team this year and will begin their season Saturday when they participate in the 1st Overton volleyball tournament. AM will play Hitchcock County in the opening round of the tournament at 10am. Others in the tournament include the host team Overton, Arapahoe, North Platte St. Pat’s, Shelton, Central Valley, and Maxwell. The Lady Coyotes were part of the Bill Marshall Volleyball Classic at the state fair this year. Coach Katie Hoblyn, who begins her 5th season as AM head coach, shared with KCNI/KBBN what she learned about her team during that experience.
AM will have 5 returning starters this year who bring a lot of experience and leadership to the team this year.
Anselmo-Merna will be featured on KBBN 95.3 FM September 5th when they host a triangular with Ansley/Litchfield and Twin Loup as well as September 24th for a triangular in Callaway with South Loup and Elm Creek. The Coyotes will compete again in the Mid Nebraska Activities Conference. KBBN will provide coverage of this year’s MNAC volleyball tournament.
