Chase County Coach Schuller heads West Team another year
MaKenna Ketter and Paige Spady, recent graduates of Chase County Schools, are among the 26 players picked to compete in the 31st annual West Nebraska All-Star Volleyball Game.
The 13 members of each all-star volleyball team were selected from nominations by their respective high school head coach.
The match will be played next Saturday, June 13, in Scottsbluff at Cougar Palace on the campus of Western Nebraska Community College. Game time is 2 p.m.
Players will check in next Wednesday, June 10, to begin game preparations.
Chase County Head Volleyball Coach Jodie Schuller is also involved in the game as Head Coach for the West. Angie Hiemstra from Alliance High School will be the assistant coach.
This is Schuller’s second year to be selected as head coach in the all-star game at Scottsbluff. Her first experience as the West Team head coach came in 2005. That year, Angie Dickey completed her coaching duties when Schuller had to leave due illness.
The Chase County players will be joined by 11 others on the West roster from Creek Valley, Alliance, Thedford, Valentine, Mitchell and Gering, Bayard.
The East squad’s coaching will be led by Katie Helms from Cambridge High School. Lynne Johnson from Brady High School will assist her.
Playing on the East Team will be Sydnee Harchelroad and Lesley Towery of Wauneta-Palisade High Schools.
Others on the East will come from South Loup, Southern Valley, North Platte, Cambridge, Maxwell, Ansley, Mullen, Litchfield and Brady.
Some of the proceeds from the all-star volleyball game will benefit local charities in Scotts Bluff County. In 2014, $5,000 was donated to three local charities.
