The Great Falls High School volleyball team was back at practice Wednesday to prepare for their first home game of the season. The Lady Bison play Thursday against Hellgate.
Great Falls did not make the playoffs last year and they aren't too happy about it. The team knows it can play better and they are intent on proving that throughout the season. The team brought in some trainers to help with mental and physical toughness. The Lady Bison know they can't control how the other team plays, but they also know it'll be up to them to cut down on unforced errors and play a full match.
"We just have to play really good defense and good service defense against every team we play," said senior middle blocker Sarah Dutro. "Hellgate has always been a good team but we're excited and ready to take them."
Head coach Katherine Sunwall added "this week is always crazy. It's the first week so what we ask the girls to do is just come here focused and ready to work hard. If we continue to do that then hopefully it will carry over to games so."
The Lady Bison host the Knights in the field house at 7 p.m. Thursday.
