Lady Raiders win Western Conference Volleyball Tournament

SIDNEY — The Sidney Lady Raider volleyball team rebounded from a four set loss at Alliance on Thursday to win the Western Conference Volleyball Tournament on Saturday at Sidney High School. Sidney entered the tournament with a record of 12-11 and was seeded third out of the six teams, base on wildcard point average as of Wednesday, October 4. The teams were broken down into two pools of three teams. Pool A contained top seeded Mitchell, fourth seeded Gering and fifth seeded Chadron. Pool B consisted of second seeded Alliance, Sidney and sixth seeded Scottsbluff.

Gering emerged from Pool A with a spot in the championship match by defeating Chadron 25-21, 25-23 and Mitchell 18-25, 25-23, 25-18. Mitchell went 1-1 and qualified to play for third with a 25-21, 25-23 win over Chadron.

Sidney’s trip to the finals would require a win over second seeded Alliance in their first match of the day. Alliance warmed up in their opening match by dismantling Scottsbluff 25-9, 25-19. Sidney won the opening set 25-22, but fell in the second 19-25 forcing a third set. The Lady Raiders finished the match with a 25-21 win. Sidney would have to turn right around and defeat Scottsbluff in the last game of pool play, 25-18, 25-17.

Sidney had faced Gering once before on the season, coming away with a close 3-set win in the Sidney Triangular. The championship match was no different. Sidney won the first set 25-21, Gering the second 25-19. However the third set belonged to Sidney as they earned the championship trophy with a convincing 25-15 win.

Alliance (15-6) defeated Mitchell (17-4) 21-25, 25-19, 25-20 for third place. Chadron (8-17) took fifth with a 25-15, 25-22 win over Scottsbluff (2-19).

Sidney, who is now 15-11, will be back on the court Tuesday night as they host Chadron. The freshmen play at 4:00 p.m. followed by the Junior Varsity and then the Varsity match at around 6:00 p.m.
