WAYNE – A pair of teams who made it to their respective district final matches last season will open the NSAA volleyball schedule Thursday evening during a northeast Nebraska showdown.
From the Wayne Jr/Sr High School gymnasium, the Blue Devils will welcome in the Ponca Indians on Thursday, August 27. Per a recent update of no ‘C’ game being played, the Junior Varsity contest will open the night at 6 p.m. followed by the Varsity match.
Last season, Wayne High finished 29-6 following a first round Class C1 state tournament loss to Broken Bow in four sets as Ponca ended the 2019 season at 25-6 after being swept by Arcadia/Loup City in the Class C2-5 District Final.
During last year’s season opener, Wayne High swept the Indians in Ponca as Ponca went onto win their next 13 of 14 matches only dropping three sets during that time span. The Blue Devils were also dominant early in 2019 winning 10 straight with only two sets being lost.
Wayne High will also gear up for the Wisner-Pilger Invitational next Thursday, September 3 and Saturday, September 5 with a schedule to be posted once released.
