It is Friday night and the crowd is cheering as the Lady Bucks varsity volleyball team takes the court. They warm-up and get ready to play the Dayton Dust Devils.

In the first game, the Lady Bucks were close to winning. They could see it in there sights, but it was snatched away when the Dust Devils scored the winning point to make the score 19-25. Skylar Estes had seven attacks and four kills. Julia Dufurrena had six attacks. Elisa Higbee had six assists.

The second match was just as interesting as the first with the Lady Bucks scoring 15 and the Dust Devils 25. In that match, the Lady Bucks were neck and neck until Dayton took the lead. Alta Smith had five kills.

In the third match the game was close but not enough with Dayton winning with 25 and Lady Bucks 14.

Coach Mary Kay Pace was pleased with the way the game went in spite of the loss.

“We improved on team unity and communication and serving percentage,” said Pace.

“The girls did well with last-minute adjustments,” Pace said. “It’s a great hitting team.”

The Lady Bucks will be back in action Friday, October 16. The Truckee Wolverines will come to town with the first serve at 6 p.m.
