Cobra volleyball stays undefeated

    When Cobra senior Joy Schroeder took the court against Edna on Oct. 21, she knew it was her last home game and she wanted to make it count.
    “Before the game I was really nervous and worried, and it was a rival game so I really wanted to win,” she said. “Throughout the game though, it all melted away and it became just another game, and it was fun.”
    The Cobras took the lead early on and won the first two sets quickly, 25-18 and 25-12. The tension happened in the third set though, as Edna crept up on the Cobras’ score, tying at 16 and 18 points.
    Then Schroeder stepped up and showed it was time for her biggest moments. She attacked on more than one Cowgirl response, immediately killing it into their court on a first hit.
    “I saw someone walk into the door who has influenced my athletic career, my dad Mike Schroeder,” she said. “I decided it was all or nothing, and I wasn’t sure what game he might come to next because he’s been working out of town. I wanted to be as aggressive and effective as possible.”
    The Cobras won the last set 25-21.
    Schroeder said last week was a big week for Industrial volleyball stacked up against Boling and Edna, so the Cobras are getting into a playoff mindset.
    “We’re trying to perfect practice and go in each time and have fun, savor these moments and not overthink anything and play volleyball like nine girls would, it’s very rewarding.”
    Cobra Head Coach Jenna Treybig said she doesn’t want her varsity team to be a one and done team.
    “Of course the playoffs are on our mind. We’re always preparing for the future while staying in the moment,” Treybig said. “When it gets intense on the court I don’t keep them long in the huddle, I tell them to get back out there and play, don’t think.”
