The Loyalton volleyball team lost two pre-season games last week—both against Herlong—and lost a third game away at Providence Thursday.

In an away game at Herlong Sept. 16 the Grizzlies lost the first set 25-12. The second set was a close one, but still a Herlong victory, 25-22. The third and final set was also a loss, 25-14.

The Sept. 18 game against Herlong was at home.  The Grizzlies served first but couldn’t pull off the set win, with a 25-11 score. The second set was also a loss, 25-12.

The third set was closer, with the Grizzlies pulling within 4 points of the Vikings, 25-21. Coach Judy Guidotti said that the first two games of the season went well and that “the girls are working hard.”

She said the team has improved from last year by recognizing the importance of teamwork.   “The team is almost ready for the real season. The girls need to improve on working harder on their serving and they need to have more communication on the court.”

The girls lost all three sets in the game against Providence Thursday, with scores of 25-16, 25-8 and 25-10.

Sophomore Sequoia Bergstrom  said, “We are learning step- by – step and we are having a lot of fun.”
