The Cut Bank Lady Wolves volleyball team dropped its lone match last week to District 1B power Choteau.
The Lady Wolves are now 2-6 in conference play and 5-7 overall. While the Lady Wolves are sitting in the fifth seed of the conference, they gave top-seed Choteau a bit of a scare, showing that the district tournament in Fairfield could prove interesting.
The Lady Wolves fell 25-27 in a back-and-forth battle for the first set. They lost some momentum in the second set, falling 13-25, before battling with the visiting Lady Bulldogs in the third set, where they fell 20-25.
Senior setter Kendra Spotted Bear had a great overall match, leading the team in aces with five and adding four kills and six digs. Junior outside hitter Makenna Burke led a more balanced Lady Wolves offense with seven kills. Senior right side hitter Madi Baker added five kills, while junior middle blocker Addi Harrell had four.
Burke also led the team in digs with eight, and senior libero Reagan Wetzel added seven digs. Senior outside hitter Darci Littrell also played well defensively, picking up six digs of her own.
The Lady Wolves are down to their final two matches of the season, which could impact tournament seeding as both are conference matchups.

With no C-squad team for Conrad, the JV match will start at 4:15 p.m. with varsity to follow. On Thursday, the C-squad match against Fairfield will begin at 4:15 p.m., followed by JV and varsity.
