The Bear River volleyball team hosted Grantsville on Tuesday, Oct. 9, looking for a win, but ended up being a big loss for the girls. Final scores were 18-25, 25-12, 25-23, 20-25 and 9-15. This loss ended their journey for a chance at a playoff game to attend state.
“The girls played tough but in the end Grantsville pulled away to secure their position to move into the state tournament,” coach Megan Cooper stated. “We still needed to stay focused after this match to push forward into our weekend tournament for the Utah Classic and for senior night on Tuesday, Oct. 16, against Tooele.”
Top server was Samantha Getz with 11 points and three aces. Caitlin Wiggins came in second with 10 points, including four aces. Kelsey Hancock also had 10 points and one ace while Stephany Peterson had nine points with one ace.
Peterson led in kills with eight and also had two solo blocks. Alyssa Park had seven kills and two solo blocks while Wiggins also had seven kills and one solo block.
Park showed us how it’s done earning 18 digs while Getz had nine. Wiggins and Michelle Davis each had eight and Monica Olsen had seven and added an impressive 22 set assists.
“It was a rough and a good weekend all together,” Cooper said of the Utah Classic tournament. “All our losses were definitely mental losses. We did not look like the Bear River team from our past few matches.”
