Waukon volleyball team plays to 16-19 overall record, sees careers of some of program’s most productive players come to a close as 2022 campaign ends

The 2022 Waukon volleyball team played its way to a 16-19 season record, the program’s most wins since the 2018 season in a schedule that did not shy away from strong competition. That overall mark, however, included a five-match Northeast Iowa Conference (NEIC) dual match effort that ended up shy of the win column to place the net Tribe in sixth place in the final NEIC dual match standings.

“We kept improving all season,” Waukon volleyball coach Randy Nordheim said. “Fourteen of our losses were to ranked teams, and we were able to play right with them nearly every match. I feel like we were on the brink of great things. Our improvements when it comes to a quicker offense, focus on receiving hard serves and serving aces will serve the team well in the future. The non-varsity coaching staff has gained a lot of experience over the past two years and has a great understanding of our strengths and weaknesses. Their future is bright.”
