Hailey spikers add GBC victory over Burley

Wood River tourney starts today

     Wood River High School varsity volleyball players made a successful trip to Burley Tuesday in a tune-up for the 32nd annual Wood River Invitational tourney beginning today, Friday at the Hailey gym.

     Coach Tim Richards’ Wolverines (7-6, 2-1 league) earned their second Great Basin Conference win 25-16, 25-19, 22-25, 26-24 over the Bobcats. “A long road trip after school with a good outcome,” the coach said.

     Leading Wood River’s cause were Kori Paradis (15 kills, 6 blocks) and Lily Richards (25 service points, 5 kills).

     Brittany Bradley added 20 assists while Ciceley Peavey and Haley Cutler played great defense. Madi Hendrix had 4 kills out of 15 swings.

     Richards said his team executed well in winning the first two games, then lost focus on serve-receive and saw Burley win the third. The Bobcat momentum carried over into the fourth game, Burley surging ahead 8-2, but Wood River battled back and earned the win.

     The 32nd annual Wood River Invitational varsity tournament begins today at 3:45 p.m. and continues for two days in pool play and double elimination formats for 10 teams.

     Richards said about the Wolverine pool play schedule, “We start out by playing Mountain Home at 3:45 p.m., Filer at 4:45 p.m., Preston at 6:45 p.m. and Borah Saturday at 9 a.m.”

     In the other pool of the 10-team field are four-time defending Wood River champion and reigning Idaho 5A titlist Idaho Falls, plus Timberline of Boise, Kimberly, Kuna and Burley.

     All teams advance to Saturday’s double elimination tournament with its format of best two-of-three to 25, rally scoring, no cap, and third game if necessary to 15, no cap.
