Lady Scotties Propelled to Win Over Wolves
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 Point for a while. With GHS down 14-21, the Scotties re-grouped, sent Teagan Fossum to the line to serve the final eleven points, and never looked back. Backed by tremendously accurate passing and punishing offense, Glasgow turned it around for an impressive 25-21 win.
The Scotties totally dominated in game three. Very aggressive serving and more constant attacking as a result of consistent passing and setting were the real differences that propelled Glasgow forward. After a powerful burst of energy, Glasgow had won game three 25-10. It was a very solid mid-season showing for the Scotties.
The Wolf Point Pep Club has begun a tremendously kind tradition of feeding teams after they play, so Glasgow was treated to traveling tacos before hitting the road for home, a welcome ending to a friendly, yet competitive match. As a special bonus, Kiauna Barstad was awarded the sportsmanship medal, as decided on by the Wolf Point staff.
It was a good night for Scottie volleyball. Although the C-squad did not fare as well as hoped, the feisty JV team battled back from an 0-2 deficit to take the match in five exciting games.
Teams are only as good as the people they practice against. Unfortunately, sometimes substituting players in doesn't always happen. That doesn't lessen their role on the team, though. The starting six are pushed by their teammates to be better every day. Without all twelve girls, our team is incomplete. So in honor of their commitment and trust, our coaching hats are off to Ashtyn, Bailee, Baylie, Cordelia, Hannah, Jesi, Keely, Kennedy, Khloe, Kiauna, Madison, Sophie and Teagan.
