Tough Week For Lady Storm Volleyball
September 15, 2022 | View PDF
Coming off of three straight wins early in September, the Creek Valley Lady Storm Volleyball team looked to have righted some of the miscues that plagued them early in the season. But this last week turned out to be a brutal ride for the young team, as they dropped five straight matches to pull their record down to 3-and-8. On Tuesday September 6, the Lady Storm traveled for a triangular with Arthur County and Morrill.
Arthur County was up first and after dropping the first set 25-to-13, the Lady Storm regrouped nicely to take the second set 25-to-13. But the Lady Wolves bore down in the second set and played very well, knocking off Creek Valley 25-to-11 for the 2-to-1 match victory. Next up was Morrill, and the Lady Storm came out hot, taking the first set 25-to-21 with strong play. Morrill regrouped, however, and took the next two sets 25-to-19 and 25-to-13 for the 2-to-1 match victory.
On Saturday the Lady Storm travelled to Oshkosh for quad tournament action, and came up empty in three matches. The strong Garden County team took the first set from Creek Valley 25-to-11, but the Creek Valley squad regrouped and battled hard in the second set. Although they came up short, they gave a great effort in the 25-to-21 second set loss, giving Garden County a 2-to-0 match victory.
Creek Valley next faced South Platte, and again after losing the first set by a big margin at 25-to-12, the Lady Storm regrouped and battled hard in the second set before falling in extra points 27-to-25 for the 2-to-0 loss. Creek Valley then matched up with Leyton, and after dropping the first set 25-to-17, the Lady Storm regrouped and took it to the Lady Warriors with a 25-to-15 second set win. Leyton was able to recover and won the third set 25-to-17 for the 2-to-1 match victory.
Creek Valley was scheduled to match up against South Platte and Garden County in Oshkosh on Tuesday.
