A top 10 finish in state has left the Monument Valley High School varsity volleyball team looking forward to next year with high hopes.

The team traveled to Utah Valley University Oct. 27 for the state tournament after finishing second in regional competition. The Lady Cougars defeated their first opponent, Paiute, three sets to two. The second opponent was a juggernaut Rich team. The Cougars were swept in three sets in that match, but felt they competed well against a very tough opponent that went on to finish second in state competition. The Cougars finished the tournament as one of the top ten teams in the state.

“They came together as a team,” said coach Terri James. “This was new for a lot of the girls, but they worked hard on communication and becoming a team.”

With the strong performance this year and a team with few seniors, volleyball fans see a bright future for the Cougars. “The bottom line is they gained a lot of experience,” James said.

Senior player Crystal Stanley said the experience at state helped them grow as a team. “It was interesting. We got to see a bunch of different teams.” That’s the kind of experience the young Cougars can build on.
