Lady Wolves Volleyball team adds another win

 

October 11, 2017



The Green River High School Lady Wolves volleyball team took on their biggest rivals and came out on top.

Last Wednesday, the Lady Wolves traveled to Rock Springs to take on the Lady Tigers at a special Servin’ Up a Cure game. During this game, both teams wear special uniforms to raise awareness for cancer. The Lady Wolves came out with pink jerseys and ready to play.

The Lady Wolves came out on top in three sets, 25-11, 25-15, 25-17.

Head coach Rikki Shantz said the Lady Wolves controlled the game.

“We didn’t make a lot of unforced errors,” she said.

During the game, the Lady Wolves showed team unity, great leadership and good passing, setting and hitting. All of these things combined made for a good game.

Another thing that helped the team was support from Green River fans.

“The crowd was really great. Rock Springs always has a big home crowd, but I think Green River’s student section was bigger on Wednesday,” Shantz said. “We’ve seen that trend this year and we love it.”

Shantz said the team is not only getting better at the game each day, they are getting stronger mentally.

“We always aim to get better and build on our skills each day,” she said. “We will continue to get more consistent on defense and hitting.”

Despite a couple of injuries, Megan Yoak had a concussion and Madelyn Heiser has a knee injury, the team isn’t getting tired.

“This group is naturally very competitive and goal oriented. (It’s) very fun to coach kids like that,” she said. “They seem very focused on continuing to build to our end of season goals.”

This past weekend, the Lady Wolves will had a chance to relax since they weren’t scheduled for any games. Shantz said it was nice for the Lady Wolves to have a break since they had a tough week.

On Tuesday, the Lady Wolves played Lyman in a non conference game.

“No matter how hard we try to make practice competitive, it’s very hard to create that pressure that you get in actual games,” she said.

After Tuesday’s game, the Lady Wolves will prepare for their games against Natrona County and Kelly Walsh, which are both home games.

The Lady Wolves will play Natrona County Friday at 7 p.m. and Kelly Walsh Saturday at noon.

“I have specific things we need to work on for each game,” she said. “We are getting to the point of the season where we really start honing in on some of those more specific skills.”
