In Axtell on Wednesday evening the New West All-Star Classic took place. The format ran as follows: Republican Plains Activities Conference vs Fort Kearney Conference and LouPlatte Conference vs Southwest Conference. Then the winners of those matches would play each other, and the teams that fall, play in a consolation match.

Sweeps were the main theme of the evening as three of the matches were straight sets.

In the RPAC vs FKC match, FKC took the match in three sets, 25-21, 25-16, and 25-13.

One of my favorite things about volleyball all-star games specifically, is that the effort is always there. And both teams in this match had amazing effort in the match. In that opening set, FKC went up 3-0 to set the tone. Throughout the set, FKC did a nice job against the block of the RPAC and slowly created separation throughout the set.

In the second set, yes it was 25-16, but overall it was a close match. There were seven ties in the set. The RPAC led 8-7 and then the FKC went on a run. The FKC went on 10-3 lead and it was 17-11. The RPAC took a timeout. The FKC closed out the set on an 8-5 run to win it.

In the third set, there were a handful of mistakes from the RPAC, and the FKC played incredibly as they sealed the victory.

Unofficially, Overton standouts JoLee Ryan had nine kills and Natalie Wood had five. For the RPAC, unofficially, Jocelyn Cheek of Maxwell, Audrey Holm of Paxton, and Ann Bose of Southern Valley each had five kills.

In the match across the school, the SWC won over the LPC 25-16, 25-23, and 25-21.

In the championship and consolation matches, they were best of three battles.

So, in the championship, it was the FKC vs the SWC and the consolation was the RPAC vs the LPC.

The title game went in favor of the FKC in three sets, 25-20, 23-25, and 25-18. JoLee Ryan of Overton was the MVP of the title game.

In the consolation match, the RPAC won in two sets over the LPC 25-19 and 25-19. With it being a consolation matchup, sometimes you wonder where the energy level will be at. Well, there was nothing to worry about in this one. The RPAC went up 7-3. The LPC though battled back and tied it up at 17-17. The RPAC though, took a 21-17 lead and maintained it until the end.

In the second set, it was a back-and-forth battle until the RPAC went up 16-15. They slowly pulled away to secure the victory. Unofficially for the RPAC, Ann Bose of Southern Valley had seven kills and GraCee Goings of Wauneta Palisade had five kills.

Bailee Ahlmeyer of Cambridge was named the MVP of that match as she was all over the floor on the defensive side.
