The West Side volleyball team had two district games this last week. On Wednesday, they traveled to Aberdeen to play the Tigers; and on Thursday, they hosted the Soda Springs Cardinals. West Side won both games, Aberdeen in a difficult five matches and Soda Springs in three matches.
West Side is scheduled to play Marsh Valley on Saturday, Oct. 5, followed by a home match versus Aberdeen on Oct. 9 and an away match at Malad on Oct. 10.
The Pirates struggled against Aberdeen. Team morale was low as they lost two matches to Aberdeen. West Side won the first, third and final fifth matches. Sophomore outside hitter, Addie Cook, said, “Going into five games was difficult for us. We overlooked them, but thankfully we fought hard until the end and won. That’s all that matters.”
Against Soda Springs, West Side was much stronger as a team. The game was quick, and the Pirates soundly defeated the Cardinals in three matches. West Side’s solid passing led to great sets by Mckenzie Moser followed by powerful, well-placed hits by West Side’s hitters. The Pirates did, however, struggle with serving, making several errors throughout the game.
Cook said, “Our serves killed us, but our offense made us. We passed really well and hit into the holes. Mckenzie did a great job at getting to the net and setting it high.”
