The Terry Terrier volleyball team faced two tough conference rivals last week. On Tuesday, September 3, the Terriers headed to Dawson Community College in Glendive to play the Wibaux Longhorns. The Terriers came out strong and took the first two games from the Longhorns.
They were both very close games and the Terriers were able to close out each game by serving strong.
In the first game it was the clutch serving of Halle Keltner as she served two aces in a row to end that game. And in the second game it was the strong serving of Mikayla Ridenhower that finished out the game. The Longhorns came out strong in the next three games and the Terriers struggled to get anything set up. The Wibaux hitters got into a groove, taking the Terriers out of their offense. The Terriers committed too many errors to be able to stay with Wibaux and the Longhorns ended up winning the match in five games.
Terry v. Wibaux - 26-24; 26-24; 16-25; 18-25; 5-15
Aces 9 (Keltner 3); Kills 33 (Caty Morrison 12); Digs 49 (Alyssa Morast 12); Blocks 5 (Morast 3)
The Terriers played their homecoming match against the Ekalaka Bulldogs on Friday, September 6. This was also the Terriers first home match and they came out strong in the first game, led by the strong senior leadership of Caty Morrison at the net and Alyssa Morast in the back row. The Terriers played well as a team and capitalized on the Bulldog errors. Terry won that match by a score of 3-0.
Serving is something the Terriers have really worked on this season and overall the Terriers served very well in this match, with three players serving 93 percent or better. Halle Keltner served 93 percent during this match and Alyssa Morast and Mikayla Ridenhower each served 100 percent. All three of these girls also served 4 aces in the match.
Terry v. Ekalaka - 25-13; 25-12; 25-20
Aces 17 (Keltner 4, Morast 4; Morrison 4; Ridenhower 4); Kills 28 (Morrison 12); Digs 34 (Morast 18); Assists 27 (Lexie Schlosser 15); Blocks 3 (Morrison 2)
This week the Terriers will face conference rival, the Jordan Mustangs on Friday and then they head to Wibaux for an Invitational Tournament on Saturday, which will include teams from both the 1C and 2C conference.
