The Bear River volleyball team traveled to Ben Lomond on Oct. 2 and came home with the win in three. Final scores were 25-19, 25-14 and 25-12.
“This match was really fun to watch,” coach Megan Cooper stated. “We finally looked like what Bear River volleyball should look like. The girls’ confidence was up and they never played down to the level of their opponent.”
Top server was senior Stephany Peterson with 11 points, six of them aces. Caitlin Wiggins gave the team nine points with two aces while Samantha Getz and Kelsee Hancock tied with eight points and two aces each.
Sophomore sensation Alyssa Park had 11 kills and 11 digs while Peterson came in with seven kills and Wiggins with five kills. Getz also had nine digs and setter Monica Olsen had seven digs.
Peterson, Park and freshman Jenny Bitner each had a solo block during the match.
Hoping to ride the coattail off of the Ben Lomond win, the girls traveled to Morgan on Thursday to play the Trojans once again. Unfortunately, the momentum was gone as the Bears lost in three with scores ending 25-16, 25-13 and 25-21.
“We played our hearts out against Morgan on Thursday. If the girls play like this for their next two matches they will come out on top,” coach Cooper said.
Hancock had top service honors with seven points with one ace. Peterson had five points while Wiggins came in with four.
