Andale’s volleyball returns to the state, waiting for nothing less than a title
WICHITA, Kan. (KSNW) – Andale’s volleyball team have been looking at winning a state title since the end of last season. The Indians lost in the state title match against Bishop Miege.
“State champions out of three, one, two three, state champions!” This is how Indians break a group in training and it’s a way to stay focused on their end goal. They also live it on a daily basis in practice.
“I think last year was more of a mental game so this year a lot of things like in practice we practice the state championship scenarios that way once we get to the state championship we let’s not be nervous about it, ”said Grace Gorges, senior libero for Andale. “We are ready for it.”
The Indians have had many injuries this season, and from there they have developed a variety of combinations on the pitch and have managed to win 36 games and lose just two.
“They know the game plan. They know what to do, ”said Kaylie Bergkamp, Andale’s head coach. “We’re tough couriers and servers and we can put the ball away. I think our team knows how to play together compared to past years. It helped us a lot. “
Andale is the seed of the Class 4A tournament at Hutchinson which is due to start on Friday.
