Lady Scotties Continue Winning Streak
September 20, 2017
Sept. 16 closed out another fine week of volleyball for GHS as they completed the first round of conference play with a 4-0 record. Wins over Poplar and Harlem sealed the deal as the Scotties emerged victorious with two efficient matches, putting them at the top of the the 2-B conference for now.
Moccasin Square Garden, home of the Poplar Indians and an ever-lively crowd, is where the Scotties caught their opponents off-guard on Sept. 14. In game one, they defeated the Lady Indians 25-5, thanks to strong serving and a relentless offense. As expected, Poplar regrouped and picked up their pace with some rocket serves of their own, making games two and three much closer: 25-16, 25-20.
On the 16th, the Lady Wildcats came out like gang busters and quickly amassed a lead in game one. However, GHS steadied the course, added enthusiasm, and got back into their rhythm midway through the first set, gaining momentum to the end where they finished out the match, 25-16, 25-7, 25-11.
The GHS volleyball girls have a big week ahead of them. They traveled to Sidney for a tough Class A match-up on Sept. 19, then will host traditionally strong Scobey on Thursday, Sept. 21. Friday, Sept. 22 and Saturday, Sept. 23, they head to Dickinson, N.D., for an exceptionally challenging weekend and their final tournament of the season before post season action.
