Rock Springs went into the tournament as the number two seed. In their first matchup, the Lady Tigers faced off against a familiar Green River team which they played twice during the regular season. The match ended in favor of Rock Springs after winning 3-0 (30-28, 25-12, 25-19.)

The second match against Star Valley posed more of a challenge for the Lady Tigers as it took five sets to determine a winner. Rock Springs once again came out on top with a 3-2 (23-25, 25-12, 21-25, 25-22, 15-9) advantage over Star Valley.

Rock Springs came up short on Saturday against the Kelly Walsh Trojans in the 4A West Regional Championship match. The Trojans swept the Lady Tigers in three sets (25-10, 25-18, 25-20). Rock Springs will head to the state tournament in Casper next weekend to try their hand at a state title.
