PBJH VB takes third at SEWAC


The Pine Bluffs Lady Hornets Junior High Volleyball A team captured third place at the SEWAC conference tournament after going 5-7 in regular season play.

According to Head Coach Nancy Malcolm, the squad was going for a three-peat at claiming the SEWAC champion title, but fell short this year.

“We played some of our best games at the conference tournament and that is really what I like to see each year,” Malcolm said.

The Lady Hornets faced Southeast in the semi finals of SEWAC and lost a close game by two points in each set, going 24-26 and 26-28. Facing Lusk in the consolation bracket, Pine Bluffs was able to grab third place, winning over the Lady Tigers in two sets, 25-23, 25-22.

“The girls continued to work together as a team and improved their skill each week,” Malcolm continued.

Pine Bluffs went head-to-head against Southeast for their season opener and lost in three sets, 19-25, 25-20, 16-25. The Lady Hornets then played against Lusk and Lingle, winning over both in two set, 25-19, 25-3; 25-14, 25-16.

Competing against Kimball, the Pine Bluffs suffered their second loss of the season in three sets, 13-25, 25-19, 19-25. The Lady Hornets took on the Lady Broncs next and also lost in three sets, 27-25, 22-25, 13-25. The team competed against Carey Junior High of Cheyenne next and lost in two sets, 12-25, 21-25. Taking on Johnson Junior High proved to be too much for Pine Bluffs as they lost in two sets, 20-25 and 21-25.

The Lady Hornets found some victories as they took on conference rivals Lusk and Lingle again for the second time. Pine Bluffs defeated Lusk in two sets, 25-17, 25-13 as well as Lingle in two, 25-11, 26-24. Facing Southeast a second time ended in defeat for the Lady Hornets as they lost in two sets, 16-25, 13-25. The last two games of the season didn’t go in the column win for the Lady Hornets. Pine Bluffs fell to Wheatland in two sets, 25-14, 25-9 and then again to Burns in three sets, 23-25, 25-16, 12-15.
