There is quite a sense of optimism surrounding the upcoming Goodland volleyball season.
Last year the Cowgirls won more games (18) than they had in the previous three years combined (16) and did it with a pretty young roster that only lost two main contributors off of last years team. This year’s team returns a roster that is still filled with talented underclassmen and plenty of size. Add in a couple of good senior leaders and you can see why sixth year head coach Angie Brumbaugh thinks this could one of her better teams she has had.
“We’ve got such a talented group and such great kids, and dedicated kids,” Brumbaugh said. “I think we could do very well this season and we should be able to have a very good record and have a great chance at a run at state.”
The Cowgirls are hoping they can carry the momentum they gained towards the end of last volleyball season going 5-3 down the stretch and also having a six game winning streak in the season as well as a deep postseason run in basketball coming up just one game short of a state tournament berth.
“We’re all feeling that momentum and saying let’s make the best out of this school year and especially with the opportunity that some schools don’t get to play this year,” said senior Mikayla Biermann.
Biermann along with Sydney Hahn make up the two main senior leaders heading into the 2020 season. Other key contributors for GHS this season look to be the sisters of Emma & Olivia Lehman, Talexa Weeter & Lindsey Cure. All who were big pieces as underclassmen last season. Weeter was a first team All-GWAC selection and both Lehman sisters earn recognition, Emma a second teamer & Olivia an honorable mention.
The Cowgirls lost their season opener on Tuesday to St. Francis. They will be back in action this coming Tuesday at the Holcomb Triangular.
