Jr. High Fall Sports Wrap-Up
Volleyball
The Junior High Volleyball team ended
the year with a record of 12-1. Their
coach, Nancy Brockmeier, stated that
she was super proud of the girls this
year. She said the girls showed growth
and progress throughout the season
and that it was definitely a rewarding
season for the Heat Junior High Volleyball team. They finished off the season
by winning the League Tournament.
Football
“The Rural Vista Junior High Football
team had a struggle from the opening
practice,” said coach Steve Riedy.
They started with nine players on the
team and finished with only seven,
which is not enough to field an eight
man team. They were rewarded with
two wins this year due to their great
effort. Coach Riedy says he can’t say
enough about how hard they competed. He hopes that numbers will
improve next year.
