Lander puts 2-2 mark on board at West duals

Oct 7, 2012 - By Bruce Tippets, Sports Editor

Lander Valley High School posted a 2-2 volleyball record Friday and Saturday at the conference duals in Cody.

The Tigers began the two-day event beating Mountain View 25-21, 25-20, 25-17 on the first day. Lyman blanked the Tigers 25-19, 25-18, 25-22 to end Friday.

LVHS bounced back to beat Pinedale 25-16, 25-21, 25-17.

"I thought the girls played as well as they have all year to win rallies," LVHS coach Anndee Meyer said. "We had two good wins against Mountain View and Pinedale."

The Tigers ended the tournament losing to No. 2 ranked Star Valley 25-22, 25-14, 25-18.

"We already knew a lot about the South," Meyer said. "We have not only played them, but we are keeping up with the scores, game film and doing research."

The Braves are one of the favorites to win the Class 3-A West regional title in a couple of weeks. The duals is a place were all teams can see each other play before postseason tournament play starts.

"We were able to see how our girls played against Star Valley, and I like our chances at regionals," Meyer said.

Meyer said the Tigers didn't have any trouble playing four matches in two days.

"It wasn't tough at all," Meyer said. "We prepare for that type of play. It was good practice for what state and regional tournament are going to be like."

The Tigers battle Riverton High School on Tuesday at Wolverine Gym. Start time is for 6 p.m. There is no admission charge to the matches at RHS.

LVHS will end the regular season hosting Cody on Thursday night at Bob Carey Memorial Fieldhouse. The Tigers play their final home match on Saturday vs. Powell.

The two matches will determine what seed the Tigers will be for the regional tournament.
