PERU – Many aspiring young volleyball players from around the region gained valuable instruction and training during the first week of June. Those future players participated in different clinics at Peru State under the direction of Bobcat head coach Laurie Schroeder.
Youth from Rock Port, Mo., Gretna, Auburn, Burchard, Peru, Johnson, Tarkio, Mo., Nebraska City, Shenandoah, Iowa, Falls City, Watson, Mo., College Springs, Iowa, Union, Plattsmouth, and Tecumseh were represented in the clinics during four days the first week of June.
In addition to the instruction by Coach Schroeder and members of her Bobcat volleyball team, all participants received a camp t-shirt.
Coach Schroeder was definitely pleased with the turnout by the younger girls. Schroeder knew, too, that there were a number of high school clinics already going on, but will look to increase those numbers in the future.
The Peru State volleyball team will open its 2018 schedule on the road with a trip to Fremont on August 22 to face Midland at 7 p.m. The Bobcats’ first home game will be on Sept. 11 when they open the Heart of America Athletic Conference portion of their season with a match against Grand View at 7 p.m.
