Girls volleyball team remains undefeated

The Boulder City girls volleyball team remained unbeaten in the Sunrise League with key wins in the past week.

The Lady Eagles defeated Moapa Valley 25­-19, 21-­25, 26-­24, 25-­20 Tuesday to remain unbeaten, but the 21-­25 loss in game two was the first game the team has lost in seven league matches this season. The match was close as the Lady Pirates forced extra points in the 26­-24 game three.

Boulder City improved to 18-6 overall and 7-0 in the Sunrise League, while Moapa Valley fell to 9-10 overall and 5-1 in the league.

Prior to the Moapa Valley match the Lady Eagles not only had not lost a match in league play, they had not lost a single game — sweeping each opponent 3-0.

Boulder City also had a league match Wednesday at home against Del Sol, but the game was played too late to report the scores in this issue.

“We are doing very well for this part of the season, especially with our serving and defense,” head coach Cherise Hinman said. “Some of our strongest players have also developed into some of the strongest in the league such Alyssa Ybarra as the libero (defensive specialist) and both Jaden Wood and Lauren Pocius at the outside hitter position.

“Tara Cox is doing well at the setting position, and Alea Lehr is leading the team in service aces. Maggie Roe is the team’s leading blocker at the net. But really it is a whole team effort when they get out there on the floor.”

They also played Oct. 1 and swept Chaparral 25-12, 25-7, 25-13 as Wood made 13 kills and Cox handed out 22 assists. Emma Jeppsen finished with six kills and Ybarra added six aces and 19 digs.

The Lady Eagles play three games in three days, beginning Monday.

On Monday, the Lady Eagles are on the road in a league match at Desert Pines. They are home Tuesday against nonleague opponent Calvary Chapel and at home Wednesday against league opponent Tech, currently in third place. All three games start at 6 p.m.

“We want to keep winning to keep secure the No. 1 seed in the playoffs and to keep our momentum heading to the end of the regular season,” Ybarra said.

Cross-Country

The boys and girls cross-country teams ran a meet Wednesday at Village Green Community Park, but it was too late for results to appear in this issue. Their next meet is at 8 a.m. Saturday in the Lake Mead Invitational at Veterans’ Memorial Park.

The Freshman/Sophomore Championships are at 3 p.m. Tuesday at Desert Breeze. Several of the underclassmen from Boulder City will compete.

Girls Golf

Boulder City’s Lani Potter fired a 12-over-par 84 to earn medalist honors in a seven-team Sunrise League match Oct. 1 at Las Vegas National. Tech’s Meghan Chase was second with a 91.

They also had a match Tuesday in a seven-team league match. Lani Potter shot a 9-­over-­par 81 at Oasis Golf Course in Mesquite to win.

The girls play at 3 p.m. today against Green Valley and Legacy at Green Valley.

Tuesday’s and today’s rounds are the final tuneup matches before the Southern Region Golf Championships at 10 a.m. Tuesday at Boulder Creek Golf Course.

Soccer

Alex Krausman scored for Boulder City in a 6-­1 boys soccer loss Tuesday to visiting Virgin Valley. In girls soccer Tuesday, Brooke Beckstrand and Lauren Mullins each scored a goal for the Lady Eagles in a 7-­2 loss at Virgin Valley.
