Senior Kasey Turnbull gets off a shot last week against Rock Springs. The Lady Wolves will open their home season tomorrow night.

The Green River High School volleyball team finally gets to play at home.

After opening with their first 12 matches on the road, the Lady Wolves (5-7, 0-1 4A West) will look to pick up their first conference win of the season Friday night against Casper Natrona (11-3, 2-0 4A West). The varsity game is scheduled for 6 p.m.

Head coach Rikki Shantz said it's exciting to finally be at home.

She said the Lady Wolves always seem to bring more energy for the conference match ups and bring even more when it is at home.

It will be the second time the two teams have played, with Natrona winning in two sets in the gold bracket of the Gillette Invitational.

Shantz said they played them tough in the first set earlier this month, and in the rematch it will be about the girls being confident and realizing they have the potential to beat them.

In their conference opener, Green River dropped a five set heartbreaker to rival Rock Springs.

The Wolves came out of the gates quickly, winning the first set 25-22. The Lady Tigers would quickly regain the momentum and won the next two sets, 25-17 and 25-16.

Green River was able to force a fifth and deciding set with a 25-21 win in the fourth set.

It was all Rock Springs in the final set as they won 15-6.

Shantz said the team had some errors during the game, but they are things they can control and fix. If they do that, she said they could have a really good season.

The Lady Wolves will also host Kelly Walsh Saturday. The varsity game is scheduled for 2 p.m.
