Soroco just misses at North Park
It wasn’t the result they wanted, Soroco High School girls volleyball coach Jeannie Jo Logan said Tuesday night, but it was a good night nonetheless as her team lost a tight one on the road in North Park, falling in five sets.
The Rams lost 25-21, 21-25, 27-25, 24-26, 15-13.
“I was super proud of the girls,” Logan said. “They could have given up, but they just kept fighting back.”
That “could have given up” part wasn’t just coach-speak, either. After losing the first set, the Rams trailed by eight points in the second before rallying to win by four.
In the fourth set, the squad was down 22-16 before rallying to force the decisive fifth set.

There, North Park pulled off a rally of its own after Soroco took at 13-10 lead in the best-to-15 decider.
“It wasn’t that we played horrible,” Logan said. “It just didn’t land our way at that point.”
She said the team’s hitters — like Lucy Carlson, Kali Constine and Briana Peterson — all had strong nights and that, even in a loss, Tuesday’s match was an example of what the team could do, not a disappointment over what it didn’t do.
The tough match in North Park stood in contrast to a 3-0 win the Wildcats took last month in a visit to Oak Creek.
“We got really smart,” Logan said. “We found a lot of holes tonight, and we capitalized on them.”
The team, 8-4, is back in action at 2 p.m. Saturday at home against De Beque.
