Lady Trojans ready to hit the court
Wakefield Republican - Sean A.
Thursday, September 03, 2020

After the recent Sports Drink Scrimmage, the Wakefield volleyball team is looking to begin a season, whatever it may become, in a familiar tournament with a new name.

The Lady Trojans got together for the scrimmage/tune up last week as they prepared for the upcoming tourney.

The 2020 Northeast Nebraska Jean Groth Volleyball Classic is set to unfold from Thursday, September 3 at four sites and conclude on Saturday at two separate sites.

What was the former Northeast Nebraska Classic has added the name of long-time Wisner-Pilger volleyball coach, Jean Groth, who passed away unexpectedly last March.

The tournament will open September 3 at Wisner-Pilger, Pender, West Point-Beemer and North Bend Central with three teams competing at each site in round-robin-play to determine the order for the rest of the tournament.

The tournament will be split into a Gold, Silver and Bronze Tournament for Saturday’s festivities - which will be announced on Friday morning after the Thursday play which begins at 5:30 p.m. at all four locations.

The Lady Trojans are slated for Pender on Thursday, opening with Pender at 5:30 p.m.

Wakefield will take on Oakland-Craig 20 minutes after the conclusion of the first game then wait to see when and where it would play on Saturday.

Other teams in the entire pools include Wisner-Pilger, Bancroft-Rosalie-Lyons-Decatur Northeast, Norfolk Lutheran High Northeast, North Bend Central, Fremont Archbishop Bergan, West Point Guardian Angels Central Catholic, Tekamah-Herman, Wayne and West Point-Beemer.

Refer to your school’s website to make sure you are prepared to comply with the COVID-19 rules for viewing games at each site and complete details for times and locations of games for Saturday’s conclusion of the event.
