Time to raise the roof

Thursday, September 13, 2007

Remember that old 1990s phrase, "Raise the Roof."

It could be applied to the Nevada High School volleyball teams tonight, starting at 5.

After starting the first two weeks of the season on the road, the Lady Tigers open the home portion of their schedule, when they entertain Neosho.

Finally, a home match.

Expect a raucous home crowd at the NHS Gymnasium.

"I think it's going to be crazy," Nevada head volleyball coach Trudy Fleeman said.

The ringleaders?

None other than the boys -- not the cheerleaders, mind you.

"All of the boys and fans will be there rooting for them and I just think that will put them up even more," Fleeman said. "It's always fun to play your first home match and to do it in the middle of September makes it even more exciting.

"Some of the boys at the high school are making signs, so I just think it's going to be crazy."

Only junior varsity and varsity matches will be played. Neosho doesn't have a freshman team.
