SHS volleyball splits in Cheyenne
SHERIDAN — Sheridan Lady Broncs split their matchups at a volleyball tournament in Cheyenne Friday.
The girls lost to Cheyenne East in three (21-25, 25-12, 15-7) before defeating Riverton in two (26-24, 25-15).
“I was happy with the way we played,” coach Wendi Ruby said. “We had some errors on our side of the net that cost us the game with East, but it’s stuff we can fix and I’m seeing a lot of good things.”
Ruby added that the girls are working hard and need to just clean up their play a little bit.
No individual stats were available at press time.
“It was a good team effort, we’re just figuring out the right rotations and line up,” Ruby said.
The Lady Broncs will face Rock Springs, Kelly Walsh and Cheyenne South today.
Big Horn volleyball goes undefeated in Lingle tourney
SHERIDAN — The Big Horn Lady Rams volleyball team went 5-0 in Lingle Friday, defeating Southeast, Rock River, Lingle, Burns and Pine Bluffs.
“It was great, a great day,” coach Leigh McLaughlin said. “We saw so many good things out of the girls. We really started off strong from where we left off last year.”
The Lady Rams beat Southeast in three (25-19, 24-25 and 15-8) then went on to beat Rock River in two (25-23 and 25-24), before taking down Lingle in three (24-25, 25-24, 15-14). The girls finished the day defeating Burns in two (25-17 and 25-24) then Pine Bluffs (25-15 and 25-14).
“We picked up not only skill wise and offensively, but the most important thing is their mindset,” McLaughlin said. “We battled last year with keeping the mindset to win and these girls are starting off with that. We learned a lot last year and we’re building on that.”
She added that she mixed up rotations and every girl stood out at one point or another.
The Lady Rams will play in a tournament in Gillette next weekend.
