  • The End of the Road

    Lori Dailey, For the Courier|Nov 8, 2017

    The volleyball season has come to an end and brought with it the usual range of conflicting emotions, but the prevailing feeling must actually be one of accomplishment. Even though we said goodbye earlier in the Divisional Tournament than we had hoped, the Glasgow Scotties did so with class and grace after having given their all. We coaches could not be prouder of the girls. Their fight and respect for the game and everyone affiliated with it never faltered. So now we must say goodbye to the... Full story

  • Three Games, Three Wins, Three-Peat: Lady Scotties District Champs!

    Lori Dailey, For the Courier|Nov 1, 2017

    The GHS Scottie volleyball team are three-peat District Champs! In direct contrast to many of the past teams, this year's group experienced no mid-tournament slump, no early loss forcing them to play with a monkey on their back. Instead, they took care of business in an efficient manner and emerged as champions in as few matches as possible. GHS first matched up with Harlem at 1 p.m. on Oct. 27, and swept the Lady Wildcats in three games: 25-12, 25-10, 25-13. With some of the best passing of... Full story

    Lori Dailey, For the Courier|Oct 25, 2017

    It was a senior night like no other! To start things off on Oct. 19, the C Squad and JV teams both won their matches against Class A Sidney. Then, a packed gymnasium honored the seven volleyball seniors and their families as favorite memories and future dreams were revealed. Hannah Mickelson belted out a beautiful rendition of the national anthem, and finally the whistle blew to start the game. Sidney came out and jumped on top right away while Glasgow searched for some rhythm. Fortunately it... Full story

  • Scotties Defeat Malta, Harlem

    Lori Dailey, For The Courier|Oct 18, 2017

    What a great finish to the regular season for the Glasgow volleyball team! With tournament time approaching, a big win over Malta on Oct. 12 gave the team some extra confidence. The Scottie's focus and drive shone through as they rocked it both offensively and defensively. An amazing 67 digs (Ziggy Chamberlain 17) kept alive nearly every ball Malta sent over. Coupled with an impressive 37 team kills (Jesi Kennedy 13), creative setting (Rachelle Glaser 33) and aggressive serving (Baylie Chappell... Full story

  • Scotties Eke Out Homecoming Win Over Poplar

    Lori Dailey, For the Courier|Oct 11, 2017

    For homecoming on Oct. 7, GHS outlasted a tenacious Poplar team that played with full hearts and sheer energy. While it wasn't the Scotties' most stellar performance, it still counts as a win, so it was a success. But, GHS will need to re-group after the close contest, especially as the district tournament looms large. Several stunning defensive plays livened up the team and the ever-loyal crowd, but GHS was kept off-balance and struggled to really find their rhythm offensively. Still, a win is... Full story

  • Scotties Fall to Wolf Point In Three Games

    Lori Dailey, For The Courier|Oct 4, 2017

    The Lady Scotties were in Wolf Point Sept. 29 to take on a determined squad on the night of their school's homecoming. It turned out to be a tough night for them as the Lady Wolves took care of things in three straight games: 19-25, 17-25, 24-26. Passing woes, which almost inevitably lead to a less-effective offense, plagued GHS for much of the game and overpasses to a very tall and athletic team was an immediate problem. But, credit also goes to Wolf Point. They blocked and hit very... Full story

    Lori Dailey, For the Courier|Sep 27, 2017

    GHS played a ton of volleyball this past week, all of it against outstanding teams in all classes. On Sept. 19, they traveled to Sidney for a match with the Eagles, a team they have traditionally struggled to beat. Showing true grit, the Scotties emerged victorious, thanks in large part to a remarkable display of serving by senior Ashtyn Myrick in game three. The fury of that attack fueled more aggressive serving, particularly from Kennedy Schmidt and Rachelle Glaser. Those three girls... Full story

    Lori Dailey, For the Courier|Sep 13, 2017

    It was a close margin, but the Scottie volleyball team racked up another win on Sept. 7, against a very scrappy and determined M-ette team. With the exception of the first set, the entire match was a real battle as both teams saw wide swings in emotional strength and physical endurance. Lead changes were the norm, nerves wreaked some havoc and both teams had moments of brilliance and determination. The scores tell the story well: 25-12, 17-25, 25-20, 21-25, 17-15 The GHS C squad fell to Malta... Full story

  • Scotties Win Chinook Invitational

    Lori Dailey, For The Courier|Sep 6, 2017

    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 traditiona... Full story

    Lori Dailey, For the Courier|Aug 30, 2017

    Preseason is always such a learning experience for players and coaches alike. Take, for example, the Choteau tournament the GHS volleyball team attended Aug. 25 and 26. In two days, the girls played 24 games, 12 matches, coming out with a 5-7 record after competing against some of the top teams in the state.

  • District 2B Champions!

    Lori Dailey, For the Courier|Nov 2, 2016

    The District Tournament held Oct. 28 and 29 did not start exactly as the Scotties had hoped. With a loss to Malta right off the bat, GHS was forced to re-group before playing Poplar later in the day, which they did with a win after three fairly efficient games.

  • Focused Scotties Defeat Harlem on Pink Night

    Lori Dailey, For The Courier|Oct 19, 2016

    What an outstanding match the GHS volleyball team delivered Oct. 13 when they hosted the Harlem Lady Wildcats.

The game began with a sign of good sportsmanship as the Scotties presented the Wildcats with pink hair ribbons, worn to honor people affected by breast cancer. Following team introductions, it... Full story

    Lori Dailey, For the Courier|Oct 12, 2016

    The Scottie volleyball team's trip to Scobey Oct. 4 was uneventful, as far as bus rides go. The volleyball match itself was a different matter entirely, as the Spartans and the Scotties faced off in a fierce battle of exciting offensive and defensive plays that brought the crowd to their feet. Both teams scrambled well and fought to the end, giving the audience quite a show, but in the end a very well-coached and extremely motivated Spartan team came out on top, 17-25, 24-26, 25-14, 25-20,... Full story

  • Lady Scotties Propelled to Win Over Wolves

    Lori Dailey, For the Courier|Oct 5, 2016

    All this talk about the importance of passing, volleyball's first and most critical contact, proved its case as the Scotties fought for a victory over the Wolf Point Wolves Sept. 29. The crowd was raucous, packed with students who never stopped cheering, students who have endlessly and enthusiastically supported us every game - what a great environment to play in. Game one went as expected: scrappy competition on both sides of the net, neither team giving up on a ball, but finally GHS pushed a little harder and won 25-19. Game two was all Wolf... Full story

    Lori Dailey, For the Courier|Sep 28, 2016

    The past week was busy for the GHS volleyball team as they traveled to Sidney Sept. 20 to take on the class A Eagles. In a very competitive four-set match, Glasgow came out on fire, stunning the Eagles with aggressive serving and a wicked-fast offense that kept their block from forming a wall strong enough to stop the Scotties. In quick fashion, Glasgow came out on top 25-14. Game two was much closer as the Eagles found their stride and pushed back, costing Glasgow the set 25-22. The Lady... Full story

    Lori Dailey, For the Courier|Sep 14, 2016

They eventually won 26-24, 25-21, 22-25, 25-23, but it was a battle all night. Wolf Point came armed with size, strength and will-power that tested the Scotties on every play. GHS succeeded in outscoring them, but as the numbers indicate, this was no easy feat. Injury forced GHS to move their lineup around and shake things up a bit, but down the road this will serve... Full story

As is common early in the season, the Scotties were plagued by unforced errors, due to jitters more than anything. The Scotties dug the relentless attack of Glendive but struggled to kill for points. Serving errors were more prevalent than usual and... Full story

    Lori Dailey, For The Courier|Aug 31, 2016

  • Scotties Place Fourth at Volleyball Divisionals

    Lori Dailey, For The Courier|Nov 11, 2015

    The season has ended, the gym has gone temporarily quiet and tears were shed in the locker room. These, however, were not tears of regret. There was absolutely nothing regrettable about this volleyball season! Twelve completely engaged young ladies fought with all their hearts - they have the bruises and injuries to prove they left it all on the court. They also have the pride that surfaces only when you have done your very best. Having finished fourth at Divisionals, we didn't quite achieve our...

  • Scotties Romp Through 2B District Tournament

    Lori Dailey, For The Courier|Nov 4, 2015

    Hosting the District Volleyball Tournament comes with some perks: home-cooked meals, less missed school and familiar beds. But this year the biggest advantage has to be hometown support. Throughout the entire season and now into play-offs, the Glasgow fans have been loud and proud. Their efforts have carried considerable weight in the hearts of the Scottie girls who have periodically been dismissed due to their lack of size but who have fought tirelessly to prove that it's the size of the heart...
