On Friday, many area high school volleyball teams were attempting to secure a position at next week’s State Volleyball Tournaments while others are already assured of a spot and are looking to improve their seedings.
Yesterday, the volleyball season came to an end for the Rock Springs Lady Tigers at the 4A West Regional Tournament in Casper. Rock Springs opened play Friday afternoon with a 3-0 loss to Evanston. The Lady Tigers then met Jackson, a 3-0 loser to Casper Natrona, in a loser out game.
Rock Springs stayed alive with a 3-0 win. That set up a rematch with Evanston in another loser out game. The Lady Recd Devils again came out on top 3-1 to end Rock Springs’ season. For Evanston, the win qualified them for a State Tournament slot.
Today, The Green River Lady Wolves will play for the first time when they meet Casper Natrona at noon. The Lady Wolves had an opening round bye yesterday courtesy of their number two seed and have already qualified for the State Tournament. Evanston will meet top rated Casper Kelly Walsh at 10:00 am. Today’s match will determine State Tournament seedings for all four teams.
