‘Hawks sweep WRHS spikers in Great Basin

Volleyball update

     Wood River High School varsity volleyball coach Tim Richards was hopeful of a better result for his Lady Wolverines when they hosted the Canyon Ridge Riverhawks Tuesday in a Great Basin Conference match in Hailey.

     Yet Canyon Ridge and five-time defending GBC champion Twin Falls were the class of the 4A conference last year when the Riverhawks earned their first-ever state tournament berth.

     And it looks like a similar scenario this fall.

     Canyon Ridge swept the upset-minded Wolverines 25-15, 25-16, 25-16 and improved to 6-1 in league play with three matches remaining. Wood River (14-10, 3-3 league) lost for the first time on its homecourt and squared its season league mark.

     Richards said, “It was a disappointing night. We had high hopes of making mental progress against this tough district foe in preparation for the district tournament, but our defense struggled and so did our offense.

     “Our kill leader was sophomore Blair Radford with 6. Sophomore McKenzie Garrison helped with 5 kills and Haley Cutler and Ashley Hicks added 4 kills. Ciceley Peavey had 15 digs and Brittney Bradley had 13 assists.”

     Wood River travels to the Borah Invitational tournament in Boise Friday and Saturday, Oct. 3-4. Next home match is Thursday, Oct. 9 against the Burley Bobcats.


Lighthouse Lions dominate

     The two-time defending State 1A Division 2 tournament champ Lighthouse Christian Lions took no prisoners during a league match at Carey School gym Tuesday.

     Lighthouse stayed unbeaten at 4-0 in 4th District 1A Division 2 league play with a 25-18, 25-15, 25-21 win over the Panthers (6-8, 1-3 league).

     Carey, dropping a pair of matches to host Hagerman and Richfield on Wednesday night, visited Richfield Thursday for another league test and hosts Camas County of Fairfield Tuesday, Oct. 7 at 6 p.m. on the Panther floor.
