The Liberty Bell High School volleyball team lost on the road but rebounded with a home win in games last week.
The Lady Lions fell, 3-1, at Brewster on Sept. 22, Game scores were 16-25, 10-25, 25-22 and 20-25 for Liberty Bell.
On their home court, the Lady Lions bested Bridgeport, 3-2, on Thursday (Sept. 24). Game scores were not available.
Coach Tim Boonstra said the team is playing well this year and that the overall level of play in the league has improved. Meanwhile, powerhouses Brewster and Okanogan are not as strong as last year, the coach said, so teams like Liberty Bell have a better shot at being competitive with them.
“It’s been a lot of fun volleyball,” Boonstra said. “We have been playing close games all year.”
Veterans Erin Schue and Lauren Fitzmaurice, both outside hitters, are both having a good year, the coach said. “They’ve played great all year, with more experience and a better understanding of the game,” Boonstra said.
The Lady Lions hosted Okanogan on Tuesday (Sept. 29) and travel to Manson on Thursday (Oct. 1) before returning home next Tuesday (Oct. 6) to face Lake Roosevelt.
