October 18, 2012 I The Lovell Chronicle I 11 BY PATTI CARPENTER The LHS volleyball team took down Greybull at home on Friday, winning all three sets played, 25-8, 25-14 and 25-23. Chelsey Ellis had five kills, one block, one assist, 17 digs, one ace and had 100 percent serving. Emilee Reasch had seven kills, two blocks, one assist, nine digs, one ace and also served 100 percent. Megan McClure had four kills, 57 assists, 10 digs and served 100 percent. Mercedes Haney had three kills, seven digs and two aces. Lauren Hinckley and Cheyanne Dickey both had two kills. Maddie Baxendale and Chayli McArthur both had one kill apiece. "We came out really strong in the first set and executed everything well," said Coach Stormy Jameson. "Our side out per- centage was 100 percent that set, which means that every time Greybull served we were able to break their serve on the first opportunity. It was a good way to round out our conference play. It was a good chance to really spread out our offense and a lot of girls were able to contribute." SHOSHONI The game against top-ranked Shosho- ni brought opposite results on Saturday, which was also Senior Day on the Lovell courts. Lovell lost in four sets 25-16, 22-25, 25-23 and 25-19. Reasch had 22 kills, two blocks, 19 digs and one ace. Haney had 10 kills and eight digs. Ellis had nine kills, 30 digs and 100 percent serving. Hinckley had five kills. Bonnie Rodriguez and Baxendale had two kills each. Shyann Wilske had 35 digs and one ace. "We started out a little shaky in the first set," said Jameson. "Since it was Se- nior Day, we wanted to give all the se- niors an opportunity to start. So, we had a couple of girls playing in positions that they are not really used to playing, which kept us a little out of sync. Once we got back into our normal rotation in the sec- ond set, we were a little more on top of our game. "Shoshoni is a really solid team and has several strong hitters. Their program has continued to improve and we will hopefully get a chance to see them at the Regional Tournament and adjust the way we need to in order to beat them. I am glad that we had the chance to really highlight our seniors and hope they help lead us to the finish we are all striving for." These two games completed the con- ference play for the Lady Bulldogs and there's no doubt they have one thing in mind: to win the Regional Tournament that will be held on Friday and Saturday this week in Lander. The girls will take on Wind River in their first game at 10 a.m. on Friday. Jameson is hoping for a win against the Lady Cougars, which will like- ly put them up against the Southwest top seed Shoshoni at 4:30 p.m. on the same day. b,`~;~*iiiiidiiiii!i!iiiiiiiiii!~!ii!i!i!!i!ii!!ii!!iii!iiiii:iiii!~!iiiiiiii~; ~!: "~:~%i;i,:ii;iiii!;iii;i;i;~d;?~,k;ii %" :~iiiiii!iiiiiii!ii~ii~iiiiii- iiii 2A West Regional Volleyball Tournament Lander Valley High School Oct. 19-20, 2012 #2 NW Lovell 10/19 10 am AUX 3 #3 SW Wind River #1 sw Shoshoni 10/19.11:30 am.

M'~'~, BY PATTI CARPENTER The Lady Grizz volley- ball squad suffered disap- pointment this week after four hard-fought games, in- cluding a loss to Greybull in a pigtail game on Monday night that took away their chance to go to the Regional Tournament in Lander. THERMOPOLIS The girls took Thermop- olis to five games at home on Thursday. Thermop won the first two 25-17 and 25- 22. The Lady Grizz won the next two 26-24 and 25-22, but fell to Thermop in the fifth game 15-7. Mandee Leonhardt and Shauna Loman had 100 percent serving. Mikaela Hocker had six aces. Mad- die Crawford had four aces. Rachael Allred had 15 kills. Brianna Hocker had seven kills, Loman had nine, Hal- ey Strom had three, Kallee Jo Wilson had four and Mi- kaela Hocker had six kills. Leonhardt had 20 digs and Allred had 17 digs. "What was good about this go around is that we had some really good block- ing," said Coach Carol Mc- Millin. 'qvVe had quite a few girls doing some blocking. We put a lot more work into the net and we did better with that." Allred had seven assist- ed blocks and Strom had six assisted blocks. Hannah Winland, Loman, Wilson and Mikaela Hocker each had three assisted blocks. BURLINGTON The gifts played four games with Burlington at home on Friday. Burlington won the first two games 28- 26 and 25-20, but not with- out a good fight from the Lady Grizz. The Grizz took the next game 25-20, but fell to Burlington 25-23 in game four. "They played well," said McMillin. "This game was the first game where we did rotations with Kallee (Wil- son), so we rotated her in the middle position with Haley Strom and then we rotated her in an outside po- sition with Shauna Loman. It worked really well and it was a good atmosphere for the girls to have her back playing on the team." Wilson has been out most of the season after ma- jor back surgery. On doc- tor's orders McMillin played her in the front row to pro- tect her from too much div- ing during the game. GREYBULL The girls travelled to Greybull on Saturday. The Lady Grizz came out on top after five games. They won the first two games 25-22 and 25-15. Greybull surged to win the next two 25-15 and 26-24, but fell to Rocky in the fifth game 15-13. By taking that win, the Lady Grizz won the home court advantage in the pig- tail game that was played with Greybull on Monday night. Winland, Brianna Hocker and Wilson had 100 percent serving. Craw- ford served a total of 12 in a row in the second game and served 24 times over- all. Winland had two kills, Allred had five, Brianna Hocker had nine, Loman two, Strom three. Mikaela Hocker had five kills and Wilson had 10. "Kallee hits from way up in the air and so her tra- jectory is down more than out and it makes it hard to dig because it is power- ful," said McMillin. "I can only imagine how power- ful it would be if she would have been able to do the PATti CARPENTER Kallee Jo Wilson slams it over the net during a game with Burlington on Friday in Cowley. circuit training all season with the rest of the girls. All of the girls have done circuit training all year and I believe the circuit train- ing has made them more powerful." "Again, our block- ing was really good," said McMillin. Winland had two as- sisted blocks, Allred four assisted blocks, Brianna Hocker had one solo block and six assisted blocks, Loman had two assisted blocks, Strom had two solo blocks and nine assisted blocks, Mikaela Hocker had two solo blocks and six as- sisted blocks and Wilson had one solo block and six assisted blocks. THE PIGTAIL GAME The Rocky girls fell to Greybull in the pigtail game on Monday night, in effect ending their season. Greybull won the first two games 25-18 and 26-24. The Lady Grizz won the third game 27-25, but lost the hard-fought fourth game 25-21. Winland and Leonhardt had 100 percent serving. Mikaela Hocker had four aces, Wilson two aces and Brianna Hocker and Strom had one ace each. Allred had eight kills, Brianna Hocker seven, Loman four, Mikaela Hocker six, Strom five and Wilson seven. Leonhardt had five digs, Brianna Hocker five and Wilson four. Loman had one solo block, Mikaela Hocker two, Strom and Wilson one each. Allred had five assisted blocks, Brianna and Mikae- la Hocker four apiece, Strom eight and Wilson three. The devastating loss brought some to tears after a season of hard work that was just beginning to pay off.
