Cut Bank junior Paayton Branch passes to a teammate during Thursday night volleyball action in Shelby.

The Cut Bank Lady Wolves had a tough weekend as they were swept in a pair of conference tilts by Shelby and Choteau. The local spikers will look to get back on track as they host Conrad and Fairfield this week. 

Last Friday against Shelby the Lady Wolves fell 25-15, 25-20, 25-11. 

Sienna Spotted Bear led the defense with 12 digs while Brianne Murphy led the attack with three assists and three kills followed by Kendall Hibbs with two kills. Camille Bradley led the team with three aces while also recording four digs. Kendra Spotted Bear and Erin Schmidt each recorded a block in the loss. 

Saturday in Choteau the Bulldogs made quick work of the Lady Wolves as they took the 25-10, 25-13, 25-9 victory. 

Sienna Spotted Bear led the back row with 11 digs and also notched two kills in the loss. Jackie Waller followed with five digs. Bradley dished out 11 assists followed by Murphy who had seven to go with two kills. Paayton Branch also had two kills in the match. 

“We played two hard-hitting teams with a faster offense,” said head coach Chelsey Brown. “It was a good learning experience for the girls. All we can do is learn from our mistakes and move forward as a better team”

Cut Bank hosts Conrad on Thursday with action beginning at 4:15 p.m. while Fairfield comes to town on Saturday and games tip off at 1 p.m.
