Big Horn, Tongue River volleyball compete in Big Horn
BIG HORN — The Big Horn Lady Rams and the Tongue River Lady Eagles both competed in the Big Horn Invitational Saturday. Big Horn split its two games while Tongue River ended up 1-2 on the day.
In each team’s first game, the Lady Rams beat Tongue River 2-0 (25-23, 25-16). Big Horn then fell to Riverside 2-0 (25-20, 25-22) in the semifinals.
“We have really grown the last three weeks as individuals but mostly as a team,” Big Horn head coach Alli Nikont said. “We are passing the ball well and working really hard on defense. I like how we are playing right now headed into our first week of conference play next week.”
After their loss to Big Horn, the Lady Eagles split their remaining two games.
“We had some glimpses of really good things but also saw quite a bit of inconsistencies both physically and mentally,” head coach Janelle Manore said. “We have one more week of non-conference games, and we hope to iron out some of those issues. We have a lot of talented, hard-working athletes, and I’m excited to see where this season takes us.”
