Squaw Volleyball Update

From Coach Bryan Masse

Saturday Oct 8 was game day for all three Squaw volleyball teams as they traveled to Post to take on the Lady Lopes. The C team started it off with a straight set victory. The JV team won the first set fairly easily but scored a lot of their points on the Lopes mistakes. In games two and three the JV Squaws never got on track and lost.

The varsity started off with a 25-18 first set win. In set two Post tipped to open court and the Squaws had trouble converting those tips into offense. Post prevailed 25-21. The Squaws started covering better which led to wins of game three 25-11 and game four 25-14.

Tuesday night the Squaws were in action against Idalou and Shallowater. The C team beat Idalou in 3 games but lost to Shallowater in 3.

The JV won both of their matches against Shallowater and Idalou. They started things off right and played a really good game beating the Fillies 25-23. Game two was a complete reversal as the ladies never really established their middle game and Shallowater won 25-13. The JV rebounded in game three by limiting unforced errors for a 25-18 win.

Next up for the JV was Idalou. The win over Shallowater was a high for the girls and it was hard to come back and play Idalou ten minutes later. The girls still pulled off the win in two games 25-19, 25-20.

In the varsity match the Squaws were hoping to get the upper hand on the Fillies but lost the match in five games. In game one the Squaws played some of their best volleyball of the season and handed Shallowater a 25-14 loss. Paige Upton vound the floor with her spikes to lead game one with four kills.

In game two Shallowater adjusted to Upton and the Squaws made two many unforced errors which gave the Fillies an early lead. The Squaws rallied back but lost 21-25.

Game three was the same as the Squaws were kept out of the system by Shallowater tips. The Squaws once again rallied but unforced errors at the end of the game cost the Squaws. I felt like had we not made a few mistakes near the end of game three and come out with a win rather than a 25-23 loss we would have won the match.

In game four it looked to be all over but once once again the Squaws would not quit. Kim DeWit ruled the net with her blocks and hits and the back row got passes to Kendall Barnett so she could run the offense. Taylor Stallings made several digs to keep the Squaws in system. Bailey Pope, Sabrina Barraza, and Gabi Douglas chased down the tips and the Squaws prevailed 25-23.

In game five the Squaws tried hard but the Fillies pulled out the match with a 15-9 win. We showed a lot of heart in games two, three, and four when we were really down on the scoreboard to come back every time. Had we been more consistent in our play we would not have had such an uphill battle. The Squaws travel to Littlefield Saturday to take on the Lady Cats.
