Homecoming Week: Three Forks hosting Big Timber
September 27, 2023
The Three Forks High School Volleyball team will host their second consecutive home match on Saturday, September 30, against visiting Big Timber.
Part of a packed Homecoming week of activities, Saturday’s action will begin with the Freshman team at 1 p.m.
In their home opener on September 23 against Whitehall, the Wolves bounced back after losing the first set 25-20, winning the second set 25-17. The visiting Trojans would seal the match, winning the final two sets, 25-16, 25-18.
It was a big night for Arabella McCauley, who had 25 assists, 12 digs, and two aces. Madelyn Tesoro finished with 14 digs, Natalee Hayder had nine kills, Olivia Whitesitt had seven, and Eva Parker finished with three blocks.
In road action last week, Three Forks lost in three sets (25-21, 25-13, 25-19) at Ennis.
Head Coach Tiffany Lynch said Whitehall and Ennis were tough’ ones for the team.
“We were missing a couple of key players for the Whitehall match, which made it difficult,” Lynch said.
According to Lynch, a bright spot from the match was that several younger players stepped in and did a great job.
“Arabella McCauley did a great job setting on varsity, and Olivia Whitesitt was second on our team in kills. Both of those girls are freshmen. It’s exciting to see our younger players be successful,” Lynch said.
Looking towards this week, Lynch said the team has been focusing on playing hard from start to finish.
“We want them to be prepared to play hard for an entire match, so we have thrown some extra challenges at them at practice to encourage that consistent hard work,” Lynch said.
Following an October 5 road contest at Whitehall, the Wolves will wrap up the 2023 schedule at home with Manhattan on October 10, Ennis on October 12, Jefferson on October 19, and the regular season finale on October 21 against Lone Peak.
With the back end of the schedule loaded with home matches, Lynch said it is nice to be able to get out on the home court.
“It looks so cool in there, and we love playing for Red Kingdom,” she said.
