Volleyball all state and all conference honors have been awarded to players from across the county, including Ennis, Harrison and Twin Bridges.
It was a similar scenario to the 2016 class C volleyball championship game, only this time, Ennis had the upper hand.
Two Madison County teams were in Manhattan Christian last week, battling for one of two spots to represent district 12C at the state volleyball tournament. The Ennis Mustangs, who took the district title, soared to the championship match on Nov. 4, while the Twin Bridges Falcons fought their way to a fifth place finish.
The 12C district volleyball tournament commenced over the weekend and all four Madison County teams participated, but only two earned a spot at divisionals.
The Harrison Wildcats got their first taste of victory on Oct. 14 when they defeated the Sheridan Panthers in five sets, 25-23, 21-25, 25-19, 18-25, 15-11.
Ruby Valley residents packed in to the Twin Bridges’ gymnasium on Oct. 3 for competition between neighbors, the Twin Bridges Lady Falcons and the Sheridan Lady Panthers. While they may be friendly off the court, game time means business for the Lady Falcons.
It was purple versus purple, cat versus cat in the Sheridan gymnasium on Tuesday, Sept. 26. The Lady Panthers hosted the Lady Wildcats for mid-season league action and were able to walk away victorious. The “W” put the Panthers in fifth place in league standings, as of Sept. 27.
Last week was homecoming for the Twin Bridges Falcons, who hosted Manhattan Christian and Ennis for back-to-back games. After defeating the Eagles on Friday night, the Falcons took on the mighty Mustangs, who sit at number one in conference standings.
Last week was homecoming week for Sheridan Schools, who hosted the Twin Bridges Lady Falcons for some conference volleyball action Sept. 12. As various superheroes packed into the gym in capes and costumes, the real superheroes were those on the court.
In one swift match, the Mustangs defeated the Panther’s in three sets, 25-13, 25-1 and 25-5. The star of the night was Harrison transfer student, Josie Hokanson, who knocked down 20 aces, spending most of the match behind the serving line.
