Volleyball team sees mixed results at tourney

Take on Rock Springs Thurs.


September 5, 2018

The Lady Wolves volleyball team split the weekend with three wins and three losses.

This past weekend the Green River High School Lady Wolves volleyball team traveled to the east side of the state to compete in the Gillette Invitational.

While at the tournament, the Lady Wolves played five teams and won against the Campbell County JV team 25-7, 25-16, Laramie 25-16, 17-25, 25-21 and Glenrock 25-23, 13-25, 25-18. They lost to Campbell County 25-19, 25-27, 25-12, Rapid City, S.D., 25-21, 25-19 and Laramie 24-26, 25-14, 25-19.

For head coach Rikki Shantz this is a great way for the team to gain more experience.

“We get the opportunity to play teams that we don’t play in regular season,” Shantz said.

This allows the team to participate in great, competitive situations, she said.

The team’s biggest strength this weekend was summed up in one word by Shantz: heart.

“We had moments of great defense this weekend and passed very well,” she said.

However, the team does have some areas of concern,

“We are still missing too many serves,” Shantz said. “We don’t have the consistency we are striving for.”

To prepare for the Rock Springs Tigers game Thursday at 6 p.m., the Lady Wolves will need to stick to improving the basics, she said.

A rivalry game is always different than a regular game because both teams bring their best no matter how they are doing in the season. Other differences are how invested the fans, the players and those in the bench are invested in the game.
