WRHS spikers capture league match at Jerome

First GBC win of fall season

     Tuesday’s trip to Jerome turned out to be productive for the Wood River High School varsity volleyball team.

     Coach Tim Richards’ Wolverines (2-5, 1-1 league) earned their first Great Basin Conference win of the season by scores of 25-22, 25-18, 20-25, 25-21 over the host Tigers.

     Richards said, “The team defense was sound and serving accuracy was excellent.”

     “Brittney Bradley led us in assists and hit some timely kills down the line. Mary Petzke and Sadie Dawson contributed numerous kills from the middle positions.

     “Ciceley Peavey moved back to the libero position and led us with about 20 digs as she controlled the middle of the floor.”

     Wood River was in danger of letting Jerome back into the match in the fourth game, after the Tigers scored the final five points of their 25-20 victory in the third set.

     Richards said he reminded the players of the importance of passing accuracy and being in the correct defensive positions.

     The Wolverines led the entire way, finishing the hard-fought fourth set with a 25-21 triumph and closing out their first GBC success.

     On Thursday night, Wood River had a tri-meet at Filer with the host team and Buhl.

     The Wolverine junior varsity tournament is Saturday, Sept. 14 at the Hailey gym, then the Burley Bobcats arrive in Hailey Tuesday, Sept. 17 for league matches.
