Spikers rally past Minico in league debut

Great Basin volleyball match

    Toughened as a team by competing in eight matches last weekend at the 28-team Peg Peterson Invitational tourney in Pocatello, the Wood River High School volleyball team showed maturity Tuesday.
    Wood River (6-5, 1-0 league) won its first Great Basin Conference 4A match of the season in come-from-behind fashion 24-26, 25-10, 25-15, 25-16 over the Minico Spartans in Rupert.
    Hailey coach Tim Richards said, “It was a real team effort—overall, a nice start to district travels for our young team at Minico.
    “A little inexperience led to the loss of a lead and we dropped the first game 24-26. Then they realized what they could do and totally shut down Minico for the next three games.
    “We had good serving by Lily Richards and Ciceley Peavey. The team had a total of 11 aces. And there was good defense and blocking, especially by Haley Cutler and Ciceley, who is at the libero spot.
    “Our seniors led with kills, Kori Paradis with 9 and Lily Richards 7, and Mary Petzke contributed with very efficient hitting and added 6 more kills. Brittany Bradley led our setting efforts with 22 assists.”
    The Wolverines had a tough clash with the senior-laden Jerome Tigers on Thursday, Sept. 6, in the home league debut on the Hailey floor. Jerome defeated Wood River in the opening round of the Highland tournament last Friday and won its pool with further wins over Highland and Shelley.
    Wood River’s junior varsity tourney begins Saturday, Sept. 8, at 8:30 a.m. in the Hailey gym.
