Wolverine spikers get ready for first home match
Sep 11, 2013 - By Craig Blumenshine, Staff Writer
The Riverton Lady Wolverines volleyball team will finally get to play a match on the home court this Thursday, Sept. 12, against the Rock Springs Lady Tigers.
Varsity game time is set for 6 p.m. in Wolverine Gym. There is no admission charge. Sub-varsity matches precede the varsity match.
RHS (5-7, 0-1 Class 4-A West) will be looking to get its first conference win of the year.
"We're still looking at two rotations right now. They are both kind of up in the air. One time one clicks, one time the other clicks. At least we have options," RHS head coach Adrian McNamee said.
The Lady Wolverines are coming off a respectable fourth-place finish in the top bracket of the large Camel Invitational volleyball tournament last Friday and Saturday in Gillette and hope to take that momentum into the coming string of conference matches, starting Thursday.
"I've heard they (Rock Springs) are scrappy, and I know they are young. I don't think they have any seniors," McNamee said.
Riverton has not seen Rock Springs (2-9, 0-0 Class 4-A West) yet this year, but hopes to have a good showing at home. Thursday's match will be the conference opener for the Lady Tigers.
"It's always fun to play at home, but there is sometimes pressure with that. You want to prove stuff more, but I also think these are the most fun environments to play in. You have the fans there. You have parents cheering, and you want to play well," McNamee said.
