Habegger to play in NCA volleyball all-star match

SEWARD, Neb. – Incoming Bulldog volleyball student-athlete Jenna Habegger of Pawnee City High School will play in Tuesday’s Nebraska Coaches Association (NCA) All-Star Match. The 32nd annual event will take place at Lincoln North Star High School with first serve set for 7 p.m.

A second team all-state selection in Nebraska Class D-1, Habegger accumulated 1,233 kills (3.7/set) during her four-year career at Pawnee City. The 6-foot-2 outside hitter played in 334 career sets and hit .247 while adding 165 blocks and 537 digs. As a senior, Habegger piled up 406 kills, hit .327 and averaged 5.2 kills per set.

Said Concordia head volleyball coach Scott Mattera, “Jenna is a young lady that we heard about midway through the high school season. She comes from a small town in southeast Nebraska so she had flown a bit under the radar. The more we looked into her, the more we liked her. She’s got the height and strength of a big time player and since she signed with us, she’s shown a work ethic in the weight room that has really impressed us. She’s adding speed and explosiveness right now that could make her a very scary player in the future. She’s a great kid that is a great fit for the school and for our program and I can’t wait to see what the future holds for her in Bulldog blue.”

Habegger is one of 28 standout graduating high school seniors to be selected to play in the NCA all-star match. She will compete for the ‘Blue Team,’ coached by Skutt Catholic’s Renee Saunders. Habegger also played in the Southeast Nebraska All-Star Match in June and was named the MVP after leading the West to victory.

The Pawnee City native will join a Bulldog volleyball program coming off a 20-12 season in which it placed fourth in the GPAC.
