The members of the Thunder Ridge Lady Longhorns volleyball team have been named the Telephone and Cable Athletes of the Week.

Thunder Ridge had an outstanding day at this past Saturday's NPL Tournament in Mankato.  They went 5-0, winning all of their matches in straight sets on their way to their 3rd consecutive league tournament title.  The Lady Longhorns were 3-0 in pool play with wins over Chase (25-18, 25-12), Lakeside (25-14, 25-19) and Lincoln (25-13, 25-11).  They won over Pike Valley in the semis, 25-10 & 25-19 before beating St. John's/Tipton in the championship match 25-19 & 25-18.

Thunder Ridge also finished in 2nd place at the 1A Regional Tournament in Logan on Tuesday.  They had a first round bye, but beat Osborne 25-19 & 25-16 in the semis.  In the end, they fell to Logan, 25-23 & 25-21 in the finals.  Next up for Thunder Ridge is the 1A Sub-State Tournament in Ransom on Saturday with the semifinal matchup against Central Plains.

We will announce the winners each week. Remember, you can nominate an athlete from any school sport.
