GUERNSEY – The Lady Vikings were back on the court last week and faced two very tough teams in Lingle-Ft. Laramie and Niobrara County.
Although the team dropped consecutive home matches, the team improved and boosted their offensive output from scoring just 15 total points in three games against Lingle-Ft. Laramie to scoring 37 points against Niobrara County.
In the first game, jitters caught up with Guernsey quickly and although the defense gave glimpses that they could be a great defensive team, unforced errors were their downfall. They dropped all three sets, 25-4, 25-6 and 25-5. Some of the bright spots for the Vikings were sophomore Juliana Schiele and freshman Jordan Atwood who both recorded a perfect service percentage. Freshman Hayeden Bingham led the team with five digs and sophomore Lily Ahrens led the team with two assists and eight service returns.
In Friday night’s contest, the scores were much closer and the team was showing improved signs of confidence and coming together in their communication and teamwork. They dropped all three sets, 25-10, 25-12 and 25-15.
For the game, Bingham led the team with a 57% kill total and junior Paige Andrews recorded eight digs to lead the team. Ahrens led the team in assists with four. Whitebird led the team with 15 returned shots.
The team will travel to Southeast (5-2) for a Tuesday night match at 4:30 p.m.
