The Neligh-Oakdale volleyball team is asking Warrior and Falcon fans to wear blue Tuesday for their game as they honor the late Nate Metschke.
Metschke, longtime band teacher at Neligh-Oakdale, impacted the lives of students at both schools — Neligh-Oakdale and Elkhorn Valley — with his positive attitude and love of music. He died in December after a battle with cancer. Wednesday, Sept. 11, would have been Metschke's 41st birthday.
Junior varsity will play at 5:30 p.m. in Neligh with varsity to follow.
