Sidney's Mattie Johnson goes for the kill against Kimball last Tuesday at the Cabela's Athletic Center.

Sidney's Lady Raider Volleyball Team has started its 2019 shedule with three straight wins, the last two coming at the Ogallala Triangular last Thursday. Sidney first faced the hosting Ogallala Lady Indians, and were able to put them away in straight sets, 25-to-21 and 25-to-19.

Senior Mattie Johnson had 12 kills and three service aces while senior Nicole Birner had 20 assists in the victory. Next up was a North Platte team that put up a tough fight, pushing Sidney to extra points in the first set and eventually falling 29-to-27, then also playing a close second set but falling 25-to-20 against the Lady Raiders. Johnson again led with 14 kills and 14 digs in the win.

Head Coach Markus Ehrke said, "Ogallala and North Platte both provide a measuring stick as to what we're doing well and what we still have to work on." The Lady Raiders outlasting both teams shows that Sidney is on track to be a tough draw for any team.
