Riverton drops volleyball match to Rock Springs
Sep 9, 2012 - By Craig Blumenshine, Staff Writer
The Riverton Lady Wolverine volleyball squad fell in its second conference match of the season to the Rock Springs Lady Tigers in four games (25-23, 25-23, 17-25, 28-26) Saturday afternoon at Wolverine Gym.
"It boils down to consistency and confidence. We start hesitating during the game and have too many mental errors," Riverton head coach Adrian McNamee said.
Kristen Bailey and Ashley Lynott played well Saturday, according to the veteran coach.
"There were moments when we all played well, and there were moments when we had miscommunication or mental errors," McNamee said.
Bailey led the team in assists with 20, and Miranda Hosking had 13.
Defensively, Bailey had 18 digs, Bree Olson 15 and Lynott 13. Amy Woodward led the team in blocks with 7, Kiley Ridgway added 4, Olson 2 and Lynott 1.
Bailey and Ridgway each had two aces, and Olson and Baylee Stafford each added an ace.
Woodward, Bailey and Lynott each had 11 kills and Hailey Snell added 9, Olson had 8 and Ridgway ended the match with 6 kills.
"I think Rock Springs is one of the better teams in our conference. It is early and hard to compare them with the rest. We will work on communication and blocking Monday. The Lady Wolverines (8-10, 0-2 Class 4-A West) will try to get their first conference win this Tuesday, Sept. 11, when they host the Green River Lady Wolve at Wolverine gym.
Game time is set for 6 p.m. for the varsity match. Sub-varsity play begins at 4 p.m. Admission is free.
