The Wiggins varsity team’s current record is 2- 3. They have played Union Colony, Platte Canyon, Sedgwick County, Weldona, and Caliche.
The varsity team consists of seniors Faythe Harris, Laura Walker, and Jessica Veeman; sophomores Tori Jordan and Makayla Harris; and freshman Chloe Baker. The new varsity players contribute new skill, confidence, and a lot of potential, according to Baker.
The first game was held on September 4 at Union Colony. The Lady Tigers lost, and continued to their second game against Platte Canyon on September 12. According to Baker, this was the best game because they gained their first win. “We learned from our mistakes, and our communication improved a lot,” said Baker
Sedgwick County was the next game the Lady Tigers attended on September 15. According to Jensen, this was the best game the ladies played. They went into this game with tons of confidence, and it paid off because Wiggins won. Jensen said, “We got a lot of kills, and we worked on our specifics. I think this helped us win in Sedgwick.”
The rival volleyball game was held on September 17 in Weldona. Many Wiggins students attended this game to support their team. After three games Wiggins lost, but they gained valuable information to improve for their next games, said Jensen.
The most recent game was held in Wiggins against Caliche. Junior varsity won, but varsity loss all three of their games.
The volleyball team has great chemistry and this helps when they get on the court, according to Faythe Harris. “This year, by far, has the best [chemistry] out of all the teams I’ve been on, easily,” said Harris.
The next volleyball game is on September 29 in Haxtun, starting at 4 p.m.
