Hammer time

Wood River and Buhl 
pound it out tonight

The season is winding down, but emotions are heating up in South Central Idaho Conference volleyball action.

Wood River hosts Buhl for "Senior Night" tonight, Wednesday, Oct. 16 in Hailey. The teams are poised to finish one-two in the conference, but it is anyone’s guess who will land on top.

On Sept. 24, the Indians outlasted the Wolverines in five tough games at Buhl, 21-13, 17-21, 21-16, 10-21, 15-11.

Wood River is 15-13 overall and 6-2 in league play (not including last night’s contest against Declo) heading into the important match. Buhl was the owner of a 6-1 league mark going into Gooding last night.

Hailey has homecourt advantage for tonight’s duel and the added excitement of "Senior Night" during which three upperclassmen, Kelsea Ballantyne, Aubrey Kirtley and Whitney Richards, will be honored.

The SCIC league tournament is scheduled to begin Saturday, Oct. 19 at the high school gym in Hailey.

On the opening day, six matches will be played to eliminate two teams. Tournament action continues Tuesday and Wednesday, Oct. 22-23.

At stake are two berths in the State 3A tournament Nov. 1-2 at Twin Falls High School.

The SCIC junior varsity tournament will also be played Saturday, Oct. 19 in side-by-side volleyball action on the Hailey hardwoods.
