Hayden volleyball falls to Plateau Valley
COLLBRAN — The Hayden Valley High School volleyball team started strong on the road at Plateau Valley, winning the opening set 25-19.
Platuea Valley went on to win the next three 25-13, 25-21 and 25-19 for the 3-1 victory. Hayden is now 3-3 on the season and faces West Grand on Sept. 17.
“We had some communication issues and got timid against the block,” Hayden head coach Kaitlyn Rudolph said, “but they never gave up. They fought for every point and didn’t give any up without trying or hitting the floor. Although we didn’t win, I’m very proud of them.”
The Tigers met Plateau Valley in a tournament Aug. 27 and lost in two quick sets. Rudolph said there was obvious improvement since then.
“They are fighters, and I can’t wait to see them grow as the season goes on,” Rudolph said.
