Green River Star -

Last few weeks show bright future for Lady Wolves volleyball team


Nearly two weeks ago, things started to click for the Green River High School volleyball team.

Going into the 4A West Regional tournament at Wolves Gymnasium, head coach Rikki Shantz said her team was practicing the best they had all season and also it was the most enthusiasm the team has shown all season.

After two thrilling wins over Rock Springs and Evanston, the Lady Wolves were able to qualify for the state tournament for the first time in five years.

While they were unable to pick up a victory at the state tournament in Casper, Shantz said the way they played at the end of the year said a lot about the teams character and the future of Green River volleyball.

She said the Lady Wolves will be losing some integral players and leaders, they have some good returning players and girls waiting waiting to fill in and get to work.

During the offseason, Shantz encourages her players to participate in multiple sport and stresses the importance of staying competitive throughout the year.

She said they will have two team camps in Utah and two in Green River, saying she expects the returning players to attend.

“Year after year, it shows that the kids that make an effort to come to those always end up on the court. Just putting the work in is so important,” Shantz said.

The longtime coach also stressed the importance of a weight program that was started this season.

She said it helped the girls get bigger faster and stronger.
