Cut Bank senior Aryana Black hammers a kill shot over the net Saturday night in Conrad as teammate Sam Burke moves into position.

The Cut Bank Lady Wolves dropped their only match last week as they fell to Conrad 3-1. The local spikers have a busy final week of regular season ahead of them as they host Choteau on Friday for their Pink Night and travel to Fairfield on Saturday for their season finale. The Lady Wolves also took on Shelby on Tuesday. 

Cut Bank dropped the opening game against Conrad 25-19 and then was dominated in the second game 25-11. The Lady Wolves stormed back in the third game with a 25-12 victory but couldn’t hold on to that momentum and fell 25-21 in the fourth game to drop the match. 

Aryana Black led the local spikers with 12 kills, ten digs and three blocks while Shelby BigSpring followed with four kills and three blocks. Camille Bradley served up three aces and led the defense with 15 digs while Sienna Spotted Bear also served up three aces and had eight digs and two kills on the night. Sam Burke dished out 17 assists and tallied 12 digs on the night while also serving up two aces. 

“This was a huge conference game for us,” said head coach Kelsey Brown. “Unfortunately, we didn’t play to our standards. We came out really flat and low on energy. In game three we started to come alive and played well but couldn’t hold on. It was a tough loss however, I was very pleased with the leadership skills of Sam Burke in the match. We have a tough and very important weekend ahead of us before the District Tournament.”

The District 1B Tournament will be held in Choteau November 1-2.
