Lady Tigers start new win streak in Saratoga


The Encampment Lady Tigers spent Friday and Saturday at the home of Valley rival Saratoga Panthers for the Saratoga Invite.

While in the house of purple and gold, the Tigers did not square off against the Panthers or 2016 division champion Little Snake River Valley, which took the state championship in a huge letdown for the Tigers last year.

The team did however take on five other teams over the course of the tournament, beating them all and beginning the year yet again with an undefeated streak, save for the narrow loss of one game during the team’s first match against St. Stephens.

Friday, the girls took on the Eagles of St. Stephen’s Indian School, where they gave up their only game in a 24-26 loss. The Tigers regrouped however and solidly defeated the Eagles in their next two games, winning those 25-9 and 25-17, taking the match.

Next, the red and black took on the Lady Miners of Hanna, whom they defeated resoundingly 25-20 and 25-13, securing that match.

For the Lady Tigers’ Friday finale, Farson-Eden fell 25-14 and 25-23.

After a night of rest, the Tigers returned to the Panther den for only two matches against the Rams of Dubois High School and the Chiefs of Wyoming Indian of Ethete.

Saturday, the ladies of Encampment K-12 dodged the Rams in two matches, scoring 25-9 and 25-22, sending them home to Dubois.

The Chiefs, the final opponent of the day for the Tigers, likewise went down in two matches 25-14 and 25-8.

After a disappointing loss at state last year in Casper, the Tigers seem to have shown over the weekend that they are on the prowl for another shot at state in 2017.

The Lady Tigers’ will have a week off to practice before heading to Baggs to take on the Little Snake R
