Volleyballers get revenge, beating Yerington in five games

After losing to Dayton High School in three matches on Oct. 23, the Truckee High School varsity volleyball team bounced back to beat Yerington High School on Tuesday night in five matches.

The Lady Wolverines lost the first match 25-17.

“They did OK, but they were getting a feel for what was going on,” said head coach Maggie Shane.

In the second match, Truckee won 25-18. Yerington won the third match 25-14.

The Wolverines bounced back to win the fourth game 25-17.

Going into the fifth and deciding match, Yerington won the coin toss and chose to side.

Each match, the team starting out serving, won. By Yerington choosing side, they chose to let Truckee serve first.

“We usually play better when we serve first. We tend to start out strong and stay strong,” Shane said.

In the fifth match, the Wolverines sent one of their strongest serves to the line to start out play, Melissa Gadsby. History repeated itself, and the Wolverines walked away with a 15-10 victory.

“Yerington was playing really good defense. They were all over the floor. We started doing that the fourth game,” Shane said.

“We had a hard time putting the ball down, and we had to work hard for the points. Perseverance was the word of the game,” she added.
