A large crowd was on hand in Green River earlier this month when the host Lady Wolves battled rival Rock Springs. The Lady Wolves are hoping for large crowds at this week's 4A West Regional tourney in Green River.

The Green River High School volleyball team will have a distinct advantage at this weeks 4A West Regional Tournament.

For the first time in six years, the Lady Wolves will host the tournament with games scheduled to take place starting Friday at 11 a.m.

Fifth-seeded Green River will open the tournament Friday at 1 p.m. against fourth-seed Evanston.

The Lady Red Devils defeated Green River last week in five sets. Head coach Rikki Shantz said her team did not play very well and was still almost able to beat Evanston.

She added they are on the verge of defeating them.

With the game being played in their home gym, Shantz said she is excited, and more importantly the girls seem to be excited about the opportunity.

Because the team has not qualified for state since 2009, Shantz said it will be important to make it to state, especially for the younger girls on the team. She said they need to get there and experience what its like to be part of it.


The tournament will kickoff Friday at 11 a.m. with third seeded Riverton playing sixth-seeded Rock Springs. The winner of the game will be pitted against the winner of Green River and Evanston.

The third game of the tournament will be played at 4:30 p.m. with the winner advancing to the state tournament.

The losers of the first two games will play at 6:30 p.m. in an elimination game.

The losers of the 4:30 p.m. and 6:30 p.m. games will play at 8:30 p.m. in another elimination game.

The winner of the 8:30 p.m. game will advance to play number one seeded Natrona Saturday at 10 a.m.

The winner of the 4:30 p.m. game will play number two seeded Kelly Walsh Saturday at noon.
