Lady Wolves split district contests
By Lisa Soileaux
The Lady Wolves claimed a win Tuesday afternoon as they traveled to Church Point, notching another district win bringing their district slate to 3-1 as they prepare for the meat of their schedule.
“We played well,” stated Rayne High Head Coach Stephanie Garrett on Tuesday’s win. “I think we collected ourselves from the weekend and are prepared for this week.”
The Lady Wolves had a bumpy road over the weekend when they participated in the Morgan City Tournament.
“We had a few games over there that just didn't make sense, both in our play and in the calls being made. We just have to shake that off and get our job done this week.”
The Lady Wolves were scheduled to hit the road for another district contest Wednesday at Breaux Bridge before hosting Northwest today (Thursday) beginning at 4 p.m. for freshman, JV and varsity action.
In Rayne’s first district last Thursday against Iota (25-8, 25-11, 25-17), a limited net game was noted by Garrett.
“We came out flat and didn’t execute on offense like we can,” Garrett commented on the loss. “They (Iota) is a very good, balance team, but we should have played better and can play better.”
Mia Guidry assisted her hitters with 14 assists, setting up front row hitters Niesha Domingue (5), Charlesha Dugas (5), Katie Benoit (3), Taylor Arceneaux (2), Sidney Fontenot (2) and Layn Boudreaux (5) who also posted 7 assists when she ran the offense.
Arceneaux and Dugas also recorded blocks on the day.
Prior to Rayne’s win at Carencro on Wednesday (25-8, 25-11, 25-17), the Lady Wolves needed four games to defeat North Vermilion (25-22, 26-24, 22-25, 25-17) in a close contest.
Leading kills for the Lady Wolves were Layni Boudreaux and Katie each with 11, Niesha Domingue had 9, Taylor Arceneaux donated 6, and Blair Bergeron and Charlyne each with 4.
The offense was structured by setters Mia Guidry and Layni Boudreaux, each with 22 assists on the day.
