The Three Forks High School volleyball team showed plenty of promise at last week's season opening Choteau Tournament.

The Lady Wolves picked up five victories and finished sixth out of 15 teams at the tournament.

Head coach Tracy Welter said the team played 26 sets which was tons of playing time for everyone.

"I believe I tried six different rotations and the kids responded very well. That's what's super about that tourney, lots of court time," she said.

Three Forks picked up wins over Big Forks (twice), Cut Bank (twice), and Conrad. The Lady Wolves split two set matches against Choteau, Cut Bank, Sims and Fairfield.

The team lost to Glasgow, Florence Carlton, and in the fifth and sixth place matchup 24-26, 20-25 against Townsend.

Welter said Kirstin Klompien and Peyton Page took on most of the important setting duties and did a fabulous job, and the teams serve receive was outstanding. She added the defense made some outstanding plays, and on the net Erin Welter and Klompien hit very well.

"Our serving was also a lot for teams to handle; we had lots of aces," she said.

Macey Combs led the team with 77 digs, Erin Welter had a team high 57 kills, and Klompien had 14 blocks. Welter, Klompien, and Macie Jensen each had a team high 11 aces.

Other players making the trip included Aubree Waldbillig, Keaton Lynn, Kendall Lynn, Lilly Lindquist, Savannah Jensen and Breanna Bloch.

Three Forks will open their home and conference season Thursday, September 5 against Manhattan. The game had originally scheduled to be on the road, but the Lady Wolves swapped dates with the Lady Tigers and will make the return trip October 3. Three Forks will also play Saturday at home against Jefferson.

"Some things we definitely need to continue working on is our blocking and transition. I am confident that we will continue to improve as the season rolls on," Welter said.
