Sound bounced off the walls and made the bleachers shake before City High’s opening game against West. Nervous energy radiated from the players as balls soared through the air. After the first serve, both sides seemed to let out a sigh of relief, starting their respective seasons.

After a disappointing first few games, the Little Hawk volleyball team is hopeful that they can turn it around.

“The mood throughout the team is great,” said Brooke Bormann. ”We are excited for the next game.”

The line up has been continually changed due to a dearth of injuries, which has slowed the team chemistry and forced some to play out of their normal position. The Little Hawks hosted a tournament last weekend and went 3-2, with a close, hard-fought loss to Durant.

“Yeah, that one kinda stunk, but I think it gives us some confidence that we can play with anyone,” said Bormann.

The Little Hawks got back into their MVC schedule on Tuesday at Cedar Rapids Washington. They will need to play well in order to win their must-win game next Tuesday against a 6-7 Dubuque senior team.  

“I am really looking forward to this one,” said middle hitter Mia Loughran ‘20. “I think we have a good chance to win it as long as we play like we have been.”
