SHERIDAN — It wasn’t a large crowd for the Lady Broncs homecoming volleyball match-up Friday night as most spectators had wandered toward the football field by the time the game wrapped up.
Those who left missed an amazing finish.
The Lady Broncs easily won the first two sets against Cheyenne East, 25-12 and 25-20.
The third set however, was a nail biter.
The lead quickly changed between the two teams and neither team ever had more than a two-point margin.
The Lady Broncs pulled ahead once they reached scores in the 20s, and beat Cheyenne South 25-21 for the last set.
“I’m proud of them for the way it ended tonight,” coach Maureen McEwen said.
She said that Cheyenne South is a pretty scrappy team, and they had some good servers, but her blockers stepped up.
“We just had to pick it up on defense, and I think we did that,” McEwen said.
McEwen added that the win last night, the first season home win for the Lady Broncs, is a huge one for the team.
This win puts the Lady Broncs at 3-3 on the season, right in the middle before conference tournaments. McEwen said the team is only going to go up from here.
“I told the girls they’re improving everyday and it’s showing out on the court,” McEwen said.
She added that the girls are really starting to come together as a team and have better communication.
The Lady Broncs face Laramie at home today at noon.
