Girls’ volleyball drops two, readies to take on Fernley

Homecoming week at Tahoe-Truckee High School was exciting and event-filled for students and sports fans, yet also made extra time scarce for student-athletes who are involved in other school organizations.

“With everything that was happening, it made it very hard for the girls to concentrate on their games,” said Wolverine varsity volleyball Coach Maggie Shane.

Last week the ladies took on Yerington and Dayton, losing both games due to lack of concentration and poor serving. On Tuesday, the Wolverines gave Yerington a tough match before losing in five games (15-7, 10-15, 15-12, 11-15, 8-15).

“We came out strong,” said Shane. “In the last games we just faltered.”

Against Dayton on Thursday, the Wolverines played through the first two matches with less intensity than they have displayed in the past. The ladies came to life in game number three, challenging the Dust Devils to a fourth game yet were unable to serve up the points for the win. They lost in three straight games 4-15, 4-15, 13-15.

Tonight the Wolverines will take on Fernley at Fernley at 6 p.m. In their last match, the Wolverines emerged victorious and will be looking for a repeat performance.
