LINCOLN, Neb. (KSNB) - In just their second-ever appearance at the State Volleyball Tournament, Gothenburg now has its first-ever win.

The Swedes knocked off #4-seed Malcolm in four sets to claim the historical win. Aubrey and Taryn O’Hare helped key the upset win. Aubrey did early damage from the service stripe while Taryn recorded a few key blocks in the match.

”Last year was our first year down here and so this year our goal was to win some games,” said Gothenburg senior libero Emily Cornwell. “I’m just really proud of this team. I knew we could do it. We have the most supportive town ever, most supportive students and it’s the best environment ever. This team is pretty confident. I think each point we build our confidence and we just hype each other up, and so I think we help each other stay confident.”
