In its first conference match of the season, Cody swept Riverton on the road Saturday.

On the Lady Wolverines’ senior night, the Fillies played strong against their first 4A competition this season.

“I think they were definitely fired up for their senior night,” Brittan Bower said. “However, it was an interesting experience for us. They weren’t as strong of a team as they had been in the past, so we really focused on playing our own style of Filly volleyball and not letting down at all.”

Cody won the match 25-17, 25-14, 25-13 and is now 7-1 overall.

“Our serving has been really good lately and with that we are able to get teams out of system making them more predictable which helps our defense,” coach Stephanie Birch said. “I was super pleased with this weekend. We played great.”

The Fillies host two more 4A nonconference opponents this weekend. They take on Star Valley on Friday at 6 p.m. and host Jackson on Saturday at 1 p.m.

“For this weekend, Star Valley historically has been pretty tough, so we’ll most definitely have to prepare for them,” Bower said. “And as for Jackson it’s also an important game since we’re beginning to face 4A teams. 

“In practice if we just keep working hard and perfecting any areas we struggle, we’ll be prepared. When we play good defense we tend to have a lot of success, so I think that will also be key.”
