Head coach Jill Stucky felt it was helping her team.
“We headed down to Campbell County, and it was their senior night, and they had their stands full. There were tons of people there. It was also Alexis Stucky’s first game, and everything was just a little awkward and trying to figure out where everyone was fitting in again. I just feel like our team really tried to pull themselves together. We managed to sweep them away.
Stucky said the Camels’ outside hitters exploded and struggled to stop them. She also said that Thunder Basin gave us everything we wanted.
“I’ll tell you they pushed us all over the place. They kind of tore our defense apart in a way that allowed us to learn and grow. I told Coach Wennett this game was good for both of us because we really needed to improve for someone to emerge and win.
In the win over the Bolts, Halley Feezer had 14 aces on service. LHS had 21 aces as a team. Plus, sophomore Maddy Stucky has passed 1,000 career assists.

Stucky said, “I was really excited to have our full roster in front of our home crowd, and to let the team enjoy and accept having our fans right there to cheer us on. It was amazing. “
Stucky admitted that she tries out different builds and moves players around, while also giving them different areas to focus on, especially the service line. Laramie had 12 more aces as a team in the conference victory over the Bison.
