STORM LAKE - The River Valley girls traveled to Storm Lake Monday to take on St, Mary's in a non-conference volleyball match, and the Wolverines gave the Panthers all they could handle, winning the first game of the match before falling in four games. Game scores were 19-25, 25-20, 22-25, 24-26.
Olivia Goettsch had 14 kills for the RV girls, while Jenna Knaack had 14 assists. Goettsch also blocked seven shots and Alysa Georgopouos had six, and Jordain Volkert had 25 digs. The Wolverines as a team landed 94% of their serve attempts successfully.
RV Coach Pamela Frederiksen said she was "very proud of the way the girls played tonight. It was a very well -matched game. Our girls fought to the end. We passed well and really communicated with each other. Even though we didn't come out with the win, I believe it was a huge victory for us to play as a team with passion, and fight for every point."
