Prep roundup: Volleyball, soccer teams in midseason form
October 7, 2008
The Truckee High volleyball team lost a nonleague match in four games, 25-22, 14-25, 22-25, 23-25, against 4A Reno this past Thursday.
Truckee fell to 18-6 overall and remains 3-1 in league.
“The girls played well. I’d say that Reno is by far the toughest team we’ve faced all season,” said Truckee head coach Nicole Annaloro. “They had a lot to offer offensively. Our defense was our strong point in the match, but we had a hard time putting things away because Reno is big; they have a tall front line.
“But overall I’m pleased with the way the girls played and would like to schedule more matches against that level of competition.”
Up next: The Wolverines host five consecutive league matches starting with Sparks today. Truckee hosts Fernley on Wednesday, Spring Creek on Oct. 17, Lowry on Oct. 18 and Dayton on Oct. 21. All matches start at 6 p.m.
The North Tahoe volleyball team defeated visiting Silver Stage in three games, 25-14, 25-11, 25-17, this past Friday.
