Coming off their best season in recent years, the Niobrara/Verdigre Lady Cougars look to continue improving under coach Jennifer Bauer.
The Lady Cougars finished 2015 with a 13-15 record, a six-win improvement over the previous year. They hope to continue that trend as they aim to reach the state tournament for the first time since Verdigre qualified in 2001.
To do that, Niobrara/Verdigre must find a way to replace their five graduated seniors from last year.

The Niobrara/Verdigre Cougars have their sights set on improving their team after winning a combined four games in the past two seasons.
To do that, coach Jonathan Bos's team must replace 10 departed seniors, including Northeast Nebraska All-Star Game participants Cade Kalkowski and Ben Johnson.
The Cougars will look to get the season started off on a strong note as they take on Chambers/Wheeler Central/Ewing August 26.
