Lady Bronc volleyballers go to Border Wars this weekend


Freshmen Bailey Shannon slides to receive a spike from the other team. The Sheridan Lady Broncs went on to win that game over the Lady Buffalo Bison.

The Lady Bronc Volleyball team wraped up another weekend of play with more experience and development under their belts this week. “Over the weekend, we won our games on Friday, yet lost on Saturday. Saturday was tough because we weren’t playing our best, but we’ve been improving and working hard and that’s what counts,” said Freshman Robbi Ryan. The players will continue to practice and better themselves this week to be prepared to tackle the Border Wars Tournament this weekend.
With half the season over, the varsity volleyball team faces high expectations for the remainder of their year as the Regionals and State competitions draw closer.
The Lady Broncs stand at 3-8 for this season; however, they are still fighting and working to win the rest of their games this season. “Our communication needs improvement, and we need to stay positive [when playing], too,” said senior Baylee Baker. The players have been working hard to improve on the team’s cohesiveness as the season progresses. “I don’t think we’ve mastered everything, yet. Everything needs improvement and growth,” said senior Brynne Gardner, “But we have really pulled together as a team, thus far.”
The varsity players also face the challenge of reaching State a second year in a row. Last season, the Lady Broncs defeated Laramie to win first. However, eight seniors graduated that year, and so this year the team isn’t full of experience. “Though we are completely different, we are just as successful,” said Gardner.

“I’m really excited to see where we go and to match and exceed what the team did last year,” said Coach Wendi Ruby. The Lady Broncs continue their season on Oct. 5 at home against Laramie.
