Heading into their first district game against Wray, the Wiggins Lady Tigers lost and missed their chance to move on to regionals. With the Tigers being sixth in their league, they played Wray, who was second in league, and to move on had to beat them.
“Heading into the week we felt confident that we were going to beat Wray since we had beaten them two times before,” said junior Courtney Jenson.
The Tigers had a good head start leading the first set 6-0. At the beginning of the first set junior Tori Jordan got the first point of the game with a kill. Even with the Tiger’s strong start, they ended up losing and not moving on to regionals.
Next year the team hopes to make it to regionals and hopefully state. According to Jordan, she hopes that next year they will be able to beat Yuma and be first in their league. Sophomore Chloe Baker said that to obtain those goals they need to “become more confident, volleyball smart, and consistent with everything we do.”
