McNair on roster for July’s Wild West All-Star Classic

    The McCook Community College summer high school all-star volleyball game has been set for Sunday, July 26, at 4 p.m. CT
    Chase County’s Mallie McNair has been selected to play on the west team.
    The annual volleyball match was pushed back from June because of Nebraska’s directed health measures (DHMs).
    MCC officials are working to conduct this year’s game in late July under up-to-date DHMs, which were eased again this week for sports.
    “We’re not sure exactly what restrictions we might have to implement at this point, but we’re going to try and do everything we can to get these girls together and showcase their talents and celebrate their high school careers,” said MCC Volleyball Coach Hayley Kobza.
    MCC officials will continue to keep a close watch on the DHMs and are making a number of contingency plans.
    Coaching the west squad this year will be Clancy Hammond of North Platte High School.
    Along with McNair, others on the west team include a pair from North Platte St. Pat’s—Kinsey Skillstad and Graci Costillo.
    Sutherland’s Payton Hoatson and Janee Elfeldt are on the west roster, along with Jaedy Commins, Ogallala; Michaela Dukes, Wauneta-Palisade; Shaye Porter, Hitchcock County; and Avery Johnson, Maywood/Hayes Center.
    Maxwell’s Gina Sommer will coach the east squad.
    Johanna Sughroue, Southwest, will suit up for the east squad along with a pair of Bertrand teammates in Jada High and Jennica Dannehl. The squad also includes three players from Southern Valley: Lauryn Samuelson, Jenny Linden, and Grace Hogeland; a pair of athletes from Brady: Kate Axthelm and Elizabeth Sitorious-Johnson; and two from Hi-Line High School, Hadley Martin and Katy Bartell.
    If open admission is allowed, tickets will be $5 for adults, $3 for children 18 and younger with children four and younger admitted free.
