Cowgirls (volleyball) at state
Posted by Slosh (+699) 13 years ago
We have 75,000 (roughly) threads dedicated to Cowboy football, and deservedly so. But with all the commotion about the Cowboys, we've kinda forgotten a pretty decent story with the Cowgirl volleyball team.

At state yesterday, the Cowgirls lost Dillon. This morning they smoked Polson and just sent Billings Central home for the year too (I don't think it's a coincedence). The Cowgirls play tonight at 8 and at worst will finish fourth, which would tie the 2006 team for best finish by a Cowgirl volleyball team.

They won in four if I remember right. They play Dillon or Belgrade tonight, not sure which one. I'll post the scores on here after I hear.

Cowgirls beat Anaconda in 4. Today they eliminated Polson, Central and Anaconda.

They play tomorrow morning against Libby with the winner facing Lewistown in the title match at 1.

Regardless, this is the farthest that a Cowgirl volleyball team has been in the state tournament.

Congrats girls.

GO COWGIRLS!

They are a very talented and skilled bunch that have synched up well this year. It's been great to watch them do so well. Keep on winning at the State Tourney girls, future players are looking up to you!

Just read on the GPS blog that the Cowgirls finished second.

Congratulations, Cowgirls - you've done better than any volleyball team has ever done at CCDHS and should be proud.

What a fantastic day for CCDHS athletics!

I can hardly wait for basketball. If the Cowgirls were good at v-ball, I imagine they've got some good b-ball talent.

Brian,

I can't believe I'm saying this...but I'm intriqued by VB. How can you lose your first match (is that correct?) and still make the ship? So was the other team undefeated at the tourney. If that's the case if the Cowgirl's won they would of both had one loss. Right?


Now don't get me wrong it worked out great for the Pokes!

It's a double-elimination setup, in a format much like you'd see in a baseball tournament. A team can lose and still be the champion if they beat the previously-undefeated team twice. For instance, if the Cowgirls would have beaten Lewistown in the first championship match, a second match would be played for all the marbles. I kind of like the format, myself.

WOW thanks it makes for a lot of VB.

Over here in ND the play out all places....so a team can lose three games and finish 8th. They do that in basketball too.
