Broken Bow Volleyball wins 3rd straight, tops Ravenna 3-1

September 26, 2013

After a timeout in the 4th set, Broken Bow coach Skylar Rohde yelled to her team, "don't let them come back."

They followed through beautifully as Broken Bow beat Ravenna 25-10 in the third set to cap a 3-1 (25-20, 21-25, 26-24, 25-10) victory.

Broken Bow turned the tide in the third set when they were down 24-23 before Rohde took a timeout to motivate her team.

It worked.

Broken Bow Libero Sydney Holcomb came up with two serving aces to help the Indians rally to win 26-24, sucking the remaining life out of the Bluejays.

Scott encourages teens to “find their greatness”

September 26, 2013

ANSLEY - - JoAnn Scott has had a passion for sports for as long as she can remember. The 1982 Ansley High School grad excelled in several sports in high school, and went on to compete at UNK. It was there that she would fall into a random “job” that would shape the rest of her life.
Monday morning Scott returned to her alma mater of AHS where she addressed the 7-12 students about her experiences. Her presentation was not one of simply listing accomplishments - rather it was a call for the students to never give up on their dream.
