GOESSEL — The Goessel Bluebird volleyball team returns nearly everyone from last season, putting the team in contention for Wheat State League and postseason honors.
Crysta Guhr begins her 16th season as the Bluebird coach, her 22nd year overall.
Goessel was 19-19 last season, 6-3 in Wheat State League play. Goessel won the Class 1A regional title last season, falling in the sub-state semifinals to Udall in three sets.
Class 1A will return to two divisions in postseason play for this season.
Returning letterwinners include Raechel Boese (sr., OH), Bethany Herrel (sr., MB), Elizabeth Schumucker (sr., DS), Kaleigh Guhr (jr., S), Lyna McCombs (jr., OH) and Rachael Zogleman (jr., OH).
Guhr was a first-team All-WSL selection last year. Boese was an honorable mention All-WSL pick.
"The 2020 volleyball tam has almost everyone back from last year," Crysta Guhr said. "A season of valuable experience and growth last year has given this team a lot of confidence and drive. They should compete well again in the Wheat State League. League teams to contend for the title include Herington, Rural Vista and Little River. This team looks forward to competing again this fall."
