Lady Raiders' volleyball picks up another win


Lady Raider Volleyball continued to find success in the early season with another win at Oroville in a three-game match last week.

“My entire team is showing great improvement,” Head Coach Kasey Garvin said. “They are doing a great job applying the things that they are learning in practice in their game play.”

LR swatted the Hornets in the Sept. 15 match: 25-13, 25-15, 25-20.

Aiyanna Picard picked up seven kills and an ace against Oroville. Jocelyn Moore led the team with eight kills, a block and an ace. Kayley Duclos continued to have success at the service line with five aces. Sean Garvin had three kills and aces, but her big stat was 20 assists to teammates.

Areielle White had a great night at the service line with five aces. Cassi Palmer and Rylee Pitner both contributed a kill. Addison Hansen recorded a solo block against the Hornets.

The Lady Raiders “are all working very hard in practice developing new skills, a faster tempo, and sharpening their areas of deficiency,” Coach Garvin said, so the whole team gets credit for the win.

“They are also learning how to celebrate all their little victories and walk away from the mistakes,” she noted. “Life is about little victories; I want them to learn to embrace every one.”

A match last Thursday was rescheduled for a later date, so the Lady Raiders did not return to the court until last night at Manson.

Looking ahead to the later matches Coach Garvin has this plan: “My goal for the first go-round in league play is simply development,” Garvin said. “By the final go-around, my goal is for these girls to dominate games.”

Last night LR travelled to Manson. Tomorrow the Lady Raiders will host the Tonasket Tigers at Gailord Nelson Gym, starting at 5:30 p.m. Then on the 29th the Lady Raiders will take on the Lady Bears at Brewster starting at 5:30 pm.
