The Scottie girls earned a big win at the Chinook Invitational held Sept. 1 and 2. Pictured back row (l-r): Jesi Kennedy, Baylie Chappell, Madison Knodel, Keely Fossum, Cordelia Nickels, Hannah Mickelson and Sophia Koessl. Front row (l-r): Rachelle Glaser, Kennedy Schmidt, Bailee Holstein, Ziggy Chamberlain and Ashtyn Myrick. You can catch the girls in action at home this Friday, Sept. 8, as they host Wolf Point.

The Scottie volleyball team played their hearts out and it showed as they took control of the Chinook Invitational held Sept. 1-2. Pool play on Friday kept the girls busy and overall the day was successful. Playing just a single game to 30 didn't allow room for much error, but overall the Scotties played hard and eventually ended the day 3-1 (Glasgow def. Chinook 30-24; Glasgow def. Cut Bank 30-19; Glasgow def. Highwood-Geraldine 30-17; Simms def. Glasgow 30-20).

Saturday offered more traditional matches as tournament play got underway. By placing first in their pool on Friday, the girls earned a first round bye so they had time to scout the competition. When it was game time though, they were all business. GHS started off with a solid win over Conrad, 25-11, 25-15, then focused their efforts to defeat an offensively strong Malta team, 25-11, 25-20. Then, it was on to the championship match where the Scotties faced Shelby for the third time this year. An exciting, energetic three-game match was shortened a little due to time constraints, but GHS came out on top as tournament champions (18-25, 25-16, 14-13). Both teams provided spectators with a fun show of meaty offense and gutsy defense. No effort was spared. Aggressive serving, hustle and internal drive really gave the Scotties the edge they needed to win.

You can catch the girls in action this week as they travel to Malta on Thursday, Sept. 7, then host Wolf Point Friday, Sept. 8. The evening will begin with the C squad starting things off at 4 p.m., JV at around 5:15 p.m. and Varsity taking the floor at approximately 6:45 p.m.
