Hello from HMS Volleyball! Lots of info this week! They won't always be this long :) 1. First game!  Thursday at Sterling.  4:30 p.m.  We will be leaving the HMS parking lot as a team at 2:45 p.m.  The girls are being dismissed from school early and therefore should bring all of the needed items with them to school in the morning.  We usually get home 830/930ish (although we really have no idea when we will get home until we play the games!) so it would be a good idea to pack a cooler. 2.There is a new format for AWAY games this year: B AND A will start at 4:30 (running 2 courts at same time) and then C1 AND C2 will play at same time following those games.  This will hopefully get us home earlier, however we are now playing best 3 out of 5 games so I have no idea what time to tell C parents when your child will play.  Home games will be like last year's format...B, A, C1, C2 using only ONE court. 3. Uniforms.  We checked them out Wednesday.  Please wash in cold and lay flat to dry.  4.  There is a home high school game on Tuesday the 1st.  We are encouraging your daughter to attend...supporting HHS volleyball as well as learning about the game.  It is NOT mandatory. 5. Monday the 7th is Labor Day....there is NO school and we will NOT practice. 6. Your daughter will need a black or white sports bra to wear under their jersey for games. 7. Your daughter will need to bring a water bottle for games.  It must have a closable lid. 8.  On the way home after the games Thursday we will have your daughter call when they are about 15 minutes away from the school.  Please be prepared for this call and be waiting in the parking lot for us when we get back so we don't have to wait on you!  9. B Team tournament has been cancelled and they will not have a tournament this year :( C1 will play in the C tournament at our high school on 9/20 Saturday.  More details to come. A team will have their league tournament at Lyons on Saturday 10/17. 10. I will be making our first grade check today.  Reminder...any player that has an F on Friday will not be able to play in the game the following week.  Students first!  Thank you for your support on this. 11.  It has been a GREAT start so far to our season and we have been impressed with the hard work and great attitudes we have seen from the girls.  Looking forward to an awesome season! Coach Hansen, Coach Barber, and Coach Bisoni-Lais

Congratulations... to all teams for capturing wins last Thursday against Haven!  We played 3 solid matches and continue to see great things from the girls!  My apologies for not having a C2 game.  Unfortunately Haven did not let us know until they arrived that day.  Therefore, the group of girls that was supposed to play last Thursday will be traveling to Sterling this Thursday.  The players that did not suit up last Thursday will not suit up again this Thursday and will not be traveling with us to Sterling.   2. Sterling games:   We will leaving for Sterling at 2:45 p.m. Thursday.  Please have girls bring all their stuff to school including a cooler for their supper.  There will be two C games however they have 2 courts so they will be played at the same time (meaning the C2 game will be played earlier than normal). 3. Dig Pink Night/T-shirt orders: The HHS and HMS volleyball teams will be hosting a Dig Pink Night to support breast cancer awareness on Tuesday, September 30 at the high school home volleyball triangular with Pratt and Nickerson. Dig Pink shirts will be sold for $10 each again this year.  If you would like to pre-order a shirt, please go to the form and other Dig Pink information by going tohs.hesstonschools.org and then Activities > Volleyball > Dig Pink Night.  The shirt design will be uploaded on the school website as soon as it is finalized.  The deadline to pre-order Dig Pink shirts is Monday, September 22.  We will not have practice that day but instead all attend the games from 4:30-7:30 p.m 4. C Team Tournament  We will host a C1 Team tournament this Saturday at the HHS Aux Gym.  I have attached the schedule below.  We will likely need A team players to call lines that morning.  Other players are not required to attend.  The following girls will be suiting up for the tournament:  Addi, Hannah, Ashley, Olivia, Jayd, Liz, Hailey, Laura, LuLu, Annel & Kalee.  Here is the link for those parents to sign up to bring food for the girls:  https://docs.google.com/a/usd460.org/document/d/104Ha5ntnqM0ukxKd0FtUgWRD6WB2DEgB5ofGHj8Ts2g/edit 5. September 23rd no practice, A Team at Moundridge September 23rd we have picked up an A team triangular with Moundridge and Inman at Moundridge.  We will not have practice that day.  B & C players are not required to attend.  We will leave at 4:00 to attend the Inman vs. Moundridge game and then will play at 5:30 p.m. and 6:30 p.m.  Thank you for all of your continued support for HMS Volleyball!
