HASTINGS, Neb. (KSNB) - The Hastings College volleyball team was back in action last week after two weeks of no team activities because of COVID-19.

The Broncos dropped both their road matches in four sets to Dordt and sixth-ranked Northwestern. Coach Alex Allard said the team broke off rust against the Defenders but she really liked how her team improved the next night going up against a top-10 team.

Since the Broncos were able to take the court for practice after the long layoff, Coach Allard said the team has brought a lot of energy.

“They came back and not only had physical energy but mental energy, emotional energy," Allard said. "It was great to just see them playing again as a team. I think that’s just fueled the whole week of practices we had, whether they were in the weight room or film session. It was just positive vibes and they were just grateful to be back.”

Going forward, Coach Allard is looking to fine tune the offense to limit hitting errors by making smarter swings.

Broncos are back home this Friday, Oct. 23 hosting Dakota Wesleyan. Match is set to start at 7:30 p.m.
