For Central, volleyball matches against Hernando have been a challenge, but on Wednesday, September 22nd, Central got their first taste of a set win against the Lady Leopards since 2015.
Maria Gebhardt took on the role of head coach for Central’s volleyball team last season and continues this year. It has been a battle dealing with delays resulting in quarantines and injuries.
“It’s definitely been a struggle,” Gebhardt said. “Our center was quarantined for two of the games; one of the games… we had two of the captains out with knee injuries.”
Hernando has a solid net presence which poses a challenge for Central when it comes to defending and blocking at the net.
“We are a tiny team, and I think that gives us a natural disadvantage; not having the height at the net that some of the other teams do,” Gebhardt said. “Our defense is typically strong. (Senior) Gianna Karnow is just absolutely phenomenal. She is tiny and has more energy than the rest of the team combined. She holds our defense together.”
