MEEKER | Regular season play for Cowboy volleyball and opening games of the season found the lady Cowboys traveling to Walden, Colo., to play both varsity and JV games against the North Park Wildcats. The lady Cowboys came out on top in this conference game taking the win in four sets: 25-16, 25-14, 23-25 and 25-21.

“We saw some good things,” said head coach Greg Cravens, “but are not passing as well as I was hoping this point of the season.” Julia Dinwiddie was top attacker with 14 kills as well as top blocker alongside Sydney Main.

“North Park did a great job keeping the ball alive and we were very error prone. We are working on that this week,” Cravens said.

They travel Friday, Aug. 31 to Black Hawk, Colo., to play in the neutral West Grand Tournament. The next home game for the Meeker volleyball team is Sept. 8 against Vail Mountain.
