Spikers split on Twin Falls road trip

Fall to ’Hawks, beat Wildcats

It was a slow start but a respectable finish for the Wood River High School volleyball team Tuesday night during its triangular meet in Twin Falls against host Canyon Ridge and the 3A Filer Wildcats.

Canyon Ridge made it four Great Basin Conference wins in five starts with a 25-11, 25-13, 25-17 sweep of Wood River—thus winning the two-game season series.

"Not our best effort. We got off the bus and started slow. We still seem to be young and inexperienced," said Hailey coach Tim Richards.

Leaders for Wood River were Kori Paradis (6 kills, 3 assists) and Lily Richards (4 kills, 8 assists).

Wood River then defeated Filer 25-10, 25-13, showing improvement from a two-game road loss to the same Filer team Aug. 30, coach Richards said.

Mercedez Powell served 21 times and of the eight Wolverine kills, Richards (6) and Madi Hendrix (1) did most of the hitting damage.

The Wolverines entertain Burley and Twin Falls for two more GBC matches Tuesday, Oct. 4 and Thursday, Oct. 6 on the Hailey hardwoods.
