Lady Bison play seven games in three days

HOT SPRINGS – The Hot Springs Lady Bison volleyball team began the season last week with a flurry, as they played seven games in three days.

Head coach Jami Klippenstein said it was great to finally get on the court in order to see where the team needed to focus as they get their 2018 season underway.

“Our passing and defense were great,” Coach Klippenstein said. “The girls made some great consistent passes and really hustled to cover the floor. We need to get stronger in the front row but I am very positive that the girls will work hard in practice to improve on that.”

The team opened the season at home last Thursday, where they fell 0-3 to Class “AA” Sturgis by scores of 14-25, 10-25 and 19-25.

The next day the Lady Bison traveled to Douglas, Wyo., where they competed in a two-day tournament went 2-4 over the course of the two days, earning wins over Big Horn (2-0) and Wheatland (2-0), but losing to Douglas (0-2), Burns (0-2, 0-2) and Newcastle (0-2).
