The Hanna, Elk Mountain, Medicine Bow (HEM) High School girls volleyball team did well last week according to head coach Jackie Jones.

"Last week was a great week for the Lady Miners," Jones said. "We ended the week by going 6-1 counting our tournament in the Wyoming Indian/ Wind River Invite."

Before the tournament on Friday, the Lady Miners beat Encampment on Sept 4. The Lady Tigers did well, with matches going 25-20, 25-19, 25-18, but they could not beat the determined Lady Miners.

"I feel our offense is starting to click with every rep, but we still have to work to do, to cover some defensive assignments," Jones said. "Our communication and effort on court improved with every set played."

The Lady Miners did fall to Wind River on Friday, but won all the other games it played against. One of the team they beat, was Little Snake River, a perennially strong team from Carbon County.

Jones was pleased with the outcome of the tournament, but is looking forward to this week's homecoming on Sept. 12 and 13 against Wyoming Indian Guernsey.

"With homecoming this week, I want the girls to enjoy being kids and focus on volleyball when that time is upon on them," Jones said. "We have two tough opponents in Wyoming Indian and Guernsey, so getting victories this week will require us to stay on top of our game and focus on what we want to do in our system."

The game against Wyoming Indian on Sept. 12 is at 4:30 p.m. and the home game on Sept. 13 against Guernsey is at 4:30 p.m.
