Lady Tigers take second place at home tourney

The Lady Tigers played two strong rounds in taking second at the Mobridge-Pollock Invitational volleyball tournament held Saturday at Mobridge-Pollock High School Gymnasium.
The Lady Tigers got all over North Central for a 25-17, 25-15 win in the opening round. They started hot and then held off Timber Lake 25-10, 25-23 in the semifinals. Ipswich, 8-1 and ranked honorable mention in this week’s media poll, was too much for the Lady Tigers and handed them a 25-22, 25-18 defeat.
“The weekend went fairly well,” said coach Rose Henderson. “We played really well in the first and second matches. We spread the ball around and used the whole court. With our offense spread like that we had North Central and Timber Lake guessing.”
In the championship, the Lady Tigers fought hard but fell by three in the first set. After they were tied at 22-22, Ipswich scored three straight points. In set two, Ipswich started with a 5-1 run and never looked back.
Henderson said the Lady Tigers played pretty well for a while, but could not keep up the pace.
“We still have to work on our confidence,” said Henderson. “It’s coming. We’re getting there.”
