Volleyball team loses 2 before Regionals


October 24, 2018

The Lady Wolves volleyball team may have had the home-court advantage, but it wasn’t enough for them to beat Rock Springs or Star Valley this week.

On Thursday, the Green River High School Lady Wolves lost to the Rock Springs Lady Tigers in three sets, 27-25, 25-13, 25-17.

“We were disappointed,” head coach Rikki Shantz said.

Even though the team lost and needed to improve playing together as a team, including passing and defense, the team had its moments.

“I saw some great things individually and they served great,” Shantz said.

The team didn’t have much time to dwell on their loss against Rock Springs. They had a game against Star Valley, the No. 1 seed in the Southwest Division, to prepare for.

“I was hoping they would rebound with a bit of a chip on their shoulder,” she said.

However, that just wasn’t the case.

Star Valley proved to strong of a team for the Lady Wolves and they lost in three sets, 25-18, 25-16, 25-14.

“The team played pretty good volleyball all around,” Shantz said.

Despite playing good volleyball, the team was lacking energy and fight, she said.

“I was very disappointed in the energy they played with,” Shantz said. “I know we are better than that.”

The team ended its regular season play with the game against Star Valley. They will now prepare for their regional games, which are scheduled to take place this weekend in Rock Springs.

On Friday at 3 p.m., the Lady Wolves, which are No. 2 seed in the Southwest Division, will take on Riverton, the No. 3 seed in the Northwest Division.

“I believe this tough week sets us up for a great week of practice going into regionals,” Shantz said. “Hopefully that adds a sense of urgency to our team.”
