Upset Over Evanston

The Wolves got the upset over the fourth ranked Evanston Red Devils in Evanston Thursday, September 28.

They won in five games. They lost the first game 21-25, won the second 26-24, lost the third 16-25, and won the fourth and fifth 25-18 and 15-12.

“It’s always great to beat Evanston, especially on their home court,” head volleyball coach Rikki Shantz said.

“We battled as a team, really well,” Shantz said. However, “we made a lot of unforced errors. Missed serves and hitting errors made the game closer than it needed to be.”

The Wolves will take on Evanston at home on October 21.

Domination Over Jackson

For the Wolves volleyball team’s Homecoming Game, they played the Jackson Hole Broncs, in which they easily won in three games.

The Wolves won the first game 25-21. This was the closest the Wolves let the Broncs get to winning.

They won the second game 25-7.

The Wolves won the third game 25-16, finishing the match.
