Community School spikers make strides
It was a season of steady improvement for The Community School volleyball team.
The Cutthroats (3-13) capped off the fall term by finishing up 1-2 in the Northside sub-district volleyball tournament at ISDB in Gooding.
On Tuesday night, Ketchum/Sun Valley opened play with a telling triumph over the Bliss Bears, winning 25-5, 25-12, 25-16.
?The kids did what they needed to do to win. They served the ball on the court and played good defense,? coach Reamy Goodwin remarked.
In the second contest, fourth- seeded Richfield came back from an opening game loss to claim the match in four. The Cutthroats won the first game 25-23, but were tripped up by the Tigers 16-17-17.
?We were down 22-19 in the first game, but we played really well down the stretch and knocked them off,? Goodwin said. ?I think winning the first game, we put some fear in them like against Dietrich the night before.?
Goodwin said he is very proud of the strides his team made through a very short season.
?Teams that were handling us easy in the beginning of the year had a hard time with us the second time around. The progression just got better and better and I had tons of people coming up to me saying how much better the team was,? Goodwin remarked.
Senior Ashley Alfs was named second team All Conference. Jackie Goddard earned Honorable Mention.
