Wind River enjoying 3-match VB win streak
Oct 17, 2013 - By Bruce Tippets, Sports Editor
Three straight victories have been chalked up by the Wind River Lady Cougars on the volleyball court.
The streak started when the Lady Cougars won a 25-23, 20-25, 15-8, decision over Burlington earlier this month.
Wind River made quick work of the Dubois Lady Rams on Oct. 10 in a 25-7, 25-13, 25-9 win.
The Lady Cougars took down Wyoming Indian 25-13, 25-19 25-7 in a Oct. 11 conference match.
"The girls have been playing well," Wind River coach Kristan Trujillo said. "We are getting excited about regionals."
Trujillo said WRHS is running a tight ship in practice.
"We are trying to make our practices worthwhile," Trujillo said. "We try to push the girls mentally and physically."
After Thursday's match at Shoshoni, Wind River plays at Kemmerer and Big Piney on Saturday to complete the regular season.
"All of our girls have been doing well," Trujillo said.
Wind River defeated Shoshoni in the first battle of the season in Pavillion. Trujillo's assistant coach this year is Brittany Keele.

A big reason Wind River is turning out wins this season is the play of senior captains Macayla Arrington and Tory Thoman.
"Macayla is the best talker on the court," Trujillo said. "She is always motivating our team in a positive way."
