Coming away with confidence

Lady Tigers use 1A Jamboree to establish strong ties among teammates, prepare for conference play


October 16, 2019

The Encampment Lady Tigers continue to work on improving their gameplay, which was exactly what they did over the weekend during the 1A Jamboree in Dubois. 

“Overall, it was a good weekend for us,” said Robin Brown, head coach of the Encampment Lady Tigers. “A few things didn’t go our way on Saturday during bracket play, but there were some really great things happening, too.”

Brown added that the Lady Tigers were more aggressive on the offense over the weekend and were able to hit with more power and more accuracy.

“The weekend was a lot about coming together as a team and learning how to win some games together,” Brown said. “I think the girls are stronger teammates after this weekend and have more confidence.”

The Lady Tigers went up against the Arvada-Clearmont Lady Panthers, the Meeteetse Lady Longhorns, the Kaycee Lady Buckaroos and the Upton Lady Bobcats over the weekend with varied success.

For their first game, Encampment went up against the Lady Panthers and would walk away with a tie game as the Lady Tigers won the first set 25-17 and Arvada-Clearmont won the second set 18-25.

On Saturday, the Lady Tigers would move into the gold bracket and face Kaycee. Encampment gave the Lady Buckaroos a tough time as it took 3 sets for Kaycee to claim a win. While the Lady Buckaroos would win the first set 21-25, Encampment came back with a win in the second set with a score of 25-24. In the third set, however, Kaycee would end the game with a final score of 3-15.

Lady Tigers vs.

Lady Bobcats

As the Lady Tigers took on Upton, they kept the score very close and prevent the Lady Bobcats from getting too far ahead. While the game ended in two sets, the scores of 20-25, 20-25 showed that Encampment made the Lady Bobcats work for their win.

Following LAST weekend, the Lady Tigers are 3-11-1 for the season and 0-4 for conference. They will return to conference play this weekend as they are hosted by the Cokeville Lady Panthers (21-5, 4-0) at 6 p.m. on Oct. 18 and the Farson-Eden Lady Pronghorns (4-9-2, 1-4) at noon on Oct. 19.

“Next weekend is a big weekend for us. We face Cokeville on Friday and Farson on Saturday. I look forward to facing Cokeville with a more aggressive offense, I think we will have a more competitive game,” Brown said. “We are really excited to play in Farson. When they came to Encampment we struggled with mental mistakes and playing the net with control. We have worked hard each day in practice on those parts of the game so it will be good to see the control and hopefully, we will come out with the win.”
