Watford City edged Ray, 3-1, in varsity volleyball action last Tuesday, and then took fourth place in the Bronze Division of the Dickinson Invitational over the weekend.
This week the Wolves will host Parshall on Thursday during Homecoming Week activities, and then close out the week’s schedule on Tuesday when Trinity Christian comes to town.
Watford City 3, Ray 1
Watford City got off to a slow start against Ray last Tuesday night as the Wolves dropped the first game to the Jays, 27-25. But the Wolves would regain their composure as Watford City would take the next three games by scores of 25-14, 25-22 and 25-18.
Katie Mogen led the Wolves with two aces and six blocks, while Ricki Lindley had 12 kills, Bailee Garmann had 11 digs and Tarynn Jacobson had 21 assists.
Individual statistics for Watford City from the match were as follows:
Aces: Katie Mogen, 2.
Kills: Ricki Lindley, 12; K. Mogen, 11; Emily Segneri, 6.
Blocks: K. Mogen, 6; Segneri, 6.

It definitely wasn’t the tournament that Brad Foss was hoping for the Wolves as Watford City struggled through the Dickinson Invitational Tournament.
The Wolves dropped their first game to Baker, 3-0, and then were shut out by Our Redeemers and Billings West to move to the Bronze Division for the tournament.
Watford City opened tournament action with a 2-1 win over Beach, and then fell to Williston and Plentywood to take fourth place.
“Overall it was a tough weekend for the Wolves,” stated Brad Foss, Wolves’ head coach. “We played well at times, but we just had a hard time keeping our momentum going. We will learn from this and make ourselves better.”
