The Lady Wolves have pocketed two wins from the last three matches and are looking to the playoffs as the season winds down.
Wolf Point notched 39 kills, 13 aces and 93 digs Tuesday, Oct. 13, over rival Poplar, which recorded 34, 6 and 92 respectively.
Playing at Poplar, the Lady Wolves won 3-2 (25-19, 15-25, 25-27, 25-19, 15-11) after trailing the Lady Indians 2-1.
Wolf Point freshman Semarah Wells led the Lady Wolves, registering 16 of the 39 kills. Other Wolf Point stats were: Shelby Hanks, two blocks; Loverty Lindsay, four aces and 41 digs; and Kelsie Neubauer, 18 assists.
For the Lady Indians, Sam Youngman recorded 11 kills. Other Poplar stats were: Emily Hagadone and Jessa Shields, two blocks each; Kylee Stump, three aces and 16 assists; and Shields, 28 digs.
The Lady Wolves also pocketed a win 3-1 (25-15, 25-16, 15-25, 25-18) over the M’ettes at Malta Thursday, Oct. 15.
Wells notched four of the team’s 16 kills, 15 aces and one block. Hanks also had one block. Lindsay recorded 23 of 51 team digs. Neubauer registered 11 of Wolf Point’s 14 assists.
The Lady Wolves lost at home to Roundup 3-1 (26-28, 9-25, 17-25) Friday, Oct. 16.
Hanks led with five kills and three blocks. Other Wolf Point stats were: Wells, three aces; Lindsay, 16 digs; and Brenna Kurokawa, eight assists.
“We have had our ups and downs,” WPHS assistant coach Erin Loendorf said.
“That’s [Wolf Point win over Poplar] the best volleyball that our girls have played as a team this season,” she said.
“They just dug deep and got it done,” Loendorf said.
“Kim [head coach Hanks] and I both know they have it in them. We are very proud of them tonight,” she said.
“The season is quickly coming to an end for the Lady Wolves. Conference play has been completed and the Lady Wolves will round out the last of regular season play this week with matches in Scobey and Circle. The girls have made amazing strides this year at all levels [C-squad, JV and Varsity]. As coaches we could not be more proud of their determination and desire to improve as players and teammates,” Hanks said.
“The Lady Wolves had an excellent week of volleyball; beating Poplar in five games, beating Malta in four games, and then losing to Roundup in three games. The match versus Poplar was a catalyst for the Lady Wolves momentum. After losing to Harlem the weekend before, they had to dig in and decide what kind of team they wanted to be,” she said.
“I believe they have discovered the taste of winning and hopefully can carry that desire into tournaments. The match in Malta was a huge confidence builder for the girls. The level of energy and sheer desire to win they displayed was above anything we had witnessed all season,” Hanks said.
“Although we ended the week on a loss, we learned a lot from the Roundup match. Roundup was one of the toughest opponents we have encountered this season and our freshman players, Semara Wells and Abby Juve, rose their level of play. These two young ladies have stepped in for the Wolves this season and are doing a great job,” she said.
