SGHS Lady Herders record another win

The Big Timber Sheepherder volleyball team is rounding into form in the final weeks before the district tournament in Belgrade with a win in their only match of the week against Whitehall.

The Lady Herders have now won two matches in a row and are 6-7 overall for the season. In conference, they boast a 6-3 record, seeding them at either second or third for the districts, depending on weekend matches.

Big Timber still has two matches left before the end of the regular season, both at home.

On Tuesday, Oct. 13, in Whitehall to face the Trojans, the Lady Herders won in straight sets thanks to good serving and efficient hitting.

Big Timber served more than 90 percent during their win over Whitehall, and even more impressive was the fact that they had 10 aces.

Holly Emter and TediJo Todd had three aces each to lead the team in that category. Leichelle Wood finished with two aces, while Aly Rosteck and Hannah Wheeler each had an ace.

Along with their solid-serving match, Big Timber only had 13 hitting errors while recording 26 kills.

Five Herders had positive hitting percentages in the match, led by Wheeler, who had seven kills without a single error and finished with a .500 hitting percentage.

Wood also had seven kills, and Mesa King had four. Rosteck and Holly Emter each had three kills, and Todd added two kills.

Wood and King finished the match with two blocks each, and Big Timber had 6.5 blocks as a team in their win.

Whitehall had a tough time returning the Herders’ attacks, so Big Timber only had 25 digs in the entire match. Wood had nine digs to lead Big Timber, and Wheeler finished with seven.

If you go: 

The Lady Herders take on Joliet at 5 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 22, followed by another game at 4 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 24, against Townsend. Both matches are at home in the Sweet Grass County High School gym. The JV team starts at the designated time with varsity to follow. These are the final two home games of the regular season.
