The New Haven Volleyball team recently traveled to Cape Girardeau to compete in the SEMO Classic on September 13 and 14. New Haven beat St. Vincent and came close to a win against Bloomfield. New Haven also lost to Hillsboro, Notre Dame, and Woodland.
The athletes were asked what they expected going into this tournament.
Lauren Hoerstkamp, senior, responded with, “Playing against some really tough and talented teams.”
Maria Sheible, junior, added, “I expected that the teams we played were going to be pretty good and challenging to play.”
“I expected to win games and get better playing with each other so we can improve for the regular season,” said senior McKenzie Overschmidt.
Next, they were questioned if they feel they improved during the tournament.
Payton Burkhardt, junior, responded with, “I thought our energy improved and we got more excited about everything.”
Lauren Hoerstkamp also added, “I thought our talking improved a lot during the tournament.”
Last, the team was asked how they could improve going into the future.
According to Maria Sheible, “I think if we stay more focused, we can improve even more.”
McKenzie Overschmidt said, “I can improve by focusing more on my passes and hitting the ball with authority, and also I can improve on talking and being the biggest emotional leader on the floor.”
Good luck to the Varsity volleyball girls in future games. Keep up the hard work!
