Lady Buckaroo volleyball keeps rolling in league play

Last Thursday, Lowry’s varsity volleyball team took a trip over to Battle Mountain with hopes of winning another conference game, which is exactly what the girls did.

It took just four games for the Lady Bucks to beat Battle Mountain, with scores of 25-17 and 25-16 in the first two games.

“We let up on them in the third game,” said senior Kayla Doyle, “We should have beat them in three games.”

After Battle Mountain managed to beat Lowry in the third game, the girls took it to the Longhorns in the fourth game, beating them 25-11. This series was a lot like the first time Lowry faced off against Battle Mountain, except this time the Longhorns weren’t missing one of their star players who were on suspension the last time the two teams played each other. But even with their star player being back, the Bucks were the better team and beat the Longhorns.

With this win over Battle Mountain, the girls are 4-0 in league play and are sitting at the top of the 3A/2A Ruby Mountain league. The Bucks will be playing West Wendover and Ely next week to try and keep their perfect league record going and to hold that number one spot they currently have.
