However, the Lady Bobcats ended the contest with the momentum and took a one set lead defeating the Lady Dogies 25-18. Round two of the match saw a much closer contest with the teams trading the lead and battling to obtain the upper hand. This set came right down to the wire, ending with Upton squeaking out a victory. “In the second set, we gave up 16 points alone in missed serves and missed hits and we lost that set by two,” Anderson frowned. “We just had too many unforced errors, and when you’re giving them free points over and over, they’re going to win.” The third set was do or die for the Lady Dogies, and though once again, the two squads battled, Upton finished the set and match with a victory. Despite their opening contest not turning out as Anderson had hoped, there were some definite positives for the team to take away. First, according to the coach, the back row performed quite well with passers communicating and moving well. And while serving and hitting perfor- mances were not what she expected, she stressed that those are two areas of the game the squad could fix. Anderson also recognized some players as having a particularly good night on the court. “Having 6-foot, l-inch sophomore Tiernan Stanton at the net is a welcome addition. She’s a beast and it’s really fun, because we put her and Jaylen [Ostenson] against each other in practice and it’s just healthy competition,” Anderson smiled. “For one so young, Tieman also sees the court extremely well, she finds the holes in coverage and is adept at placing the ball right where it needs to go.” Ostenson had a good night at the serving line, knocking down three aces in a row in the second set, while senior Caitlyn Pehringer looked very strong on the right side of the not. “I told Caitlyn that she’s our secret weapon because most people don’t hit like that from the right side,” Anderson nodded. “She is also a strong blocker and we need that against the other team’s outside hitter, and being powerful on NHS Volleyball Newcastle v.

It’s exciting that isn’t the case for us.” In the back row, Anderson was pleased with the performances of LaKacee Lipp and Alaina Steveson. The team will be working this week to clean up their serving and hitting and will be back at it on Friday with a contest in Burns beginning with the “C” team match at 2 followed by IV and varsity. On Saturday, the JV and varsity host the Wright Lady Panthers with JV beginning at 11 followed by the varsity contest.

We were able to move the ball, so now .we just need to finish.” The teams traded blow for blow but held each other out of the endzone until the Bison were able to break the Dogie defensive line and punch one in to take a 7-0 lead into the locker room at the half. A one touchdown deficit was the least of Conzelman’s worries at the mid-game break, however as in two quarters of play, he had lost his starting quarterback (Slade Roberson) and his backup quarterback (Quint Perino) to injuries that would sideline them for the rest of the contest. “The injury bug hit us hard. I knew we were going to face adversity but I didn’t know it would be like this,” Conzelman sighed. “It’s the first time this has happened since I’Ve been here, but we burned through our quarter- backs 'pretty quickly”. “Slade was looking so smooth. He was on a 60 yard scramble when he out along the sideline and his knee went out from under him,” Conzelman continued. “So we put Quint in, but right before half time, he made a tackle on the side- line and hurt his shoulder so we limped into half with just two backs in the backfield.” Some quick scrambling by the coaches and a leap of faith coupled with a gutsy decision by senior running back Chauncey Jenerou, had him under center to begin the second half. Despite having no experience in the position and having taken no snaps as QB, Jenerou stepped up and marched his team down the field in their first drive of the third quarter to punch one in and tie the game at sevens. “It was exciting to see Chauncey step up and take on a position which he never expected to be filling,” Conzelman beamed. “He hasn’t run any snaps ever, and though he struggles a little with passing, as to be expected, he did end up one for one on the night.” The touchdown was a plethora of firsts for all of the key players involved. Senior Kale Corley has spent his high school career on the line offensively and defensively, however this year he is trying his hand at fullback and appar- ently, he is skilled as a ball carrier as well. It was Corley who dragged a herd of Bison into the endzone for his first Dogie football touchdown. “Kale played center last year, but I decided to see what he could do with the ball in his hands this year,” Conzelman smiled. “Turns out it was a good decision because he got some carries and then scored on a ten-yard scamper. It was awesomel” The final first on the play was also an historical moment for Dogie football as semiarid: Emily Beastrom stepped up’to‘ boot the PAT straight through the uprights to score her first points as a football player. The contest remained tied until late in the fourth quarter when the Dogies made a mistake that gifted the Bison the go-ahead score. ‘ “We snapped the ball over Chauncey’s head into the endzone and they didn’t let — Pate Tavegz'e that opportunity go to waste,” Thank you Pinnacle Bank for buying my Market Beef!

As the Dogies look to take on their second Bison team in two weeks, they have some adjusting to do before heading to Buffalo this Friday. In addi- tion to Roberson and Perino, linemen Killian Gonnan and Kayne Hinshaw got banged up as well and the team won’t know the status of any players until mid-week. ' With that in mind, Conzelman is getting Jenerou and Tate Engle some reps in the quarterback position along with Perino in the event he gets the green light to get back in action. .

So when students came back to my beloved building on Wednesday, I was in a weird place. And as the first contests of the year took place on Friday, I had a physical reaction. My body released a rush of endorphins as the Lady Dogie volleyball team ran out on the court and the official blew the whistle for the first serve. I literally felt tears well up a little. It may sound like I’m a little obsessed, especially when I don’t really have a horse in the race (my own children are no‘ longer in high school), but these kids that play volleyball, football, those that swim and those that run cross country are my students and I know how very much each of them were hoping that they would get to be exactly where they were on Friday in their Dogie uniform, competing in the sport they love. Now my fingers are crossed that these kids will get to see their seasons come to fruition and that they will be able to finish their season competing in their regional and state events. I know that there are those who believe very strongly that being asked to wear a mask is a violation of their rights, however I know that I am willing to do whatever I have to do to keep them on the court. For that matter, I am willing to do whatever I have to in order to keep the kids in school, period. F ace-to-face edu- cation is far superior to online education, no matter the age of the student, and if we want the winter and spring sports to have a fighting chance of being able to take place, we have to stay in school. The Dogies had a great start to their seasons and God willing and the creek don’t rise, they will finish their seasons successfully as well.
