Game Recap

The Wasatch Lady Wasps Volleyball team regular season came to an end on Tuesday night with a 4 set loss to Maple Mountain. The match had no implications either team’s position in the region standings, with Wasatch keeping in 3rd and Maple remaining in 5th. WHS now gets ready for the state tournament which will be held beginning next Friday, November 3rd at Utah Valley University.

The Wasps were without two regular starters at the match, with Senior Brynli Buehler sidelined with an ankle sprain and Junior setter Jen Lythgoe seeing only limited time after an illness. “We hate losing, but we knew that the match was an opportunity to get some bench players some quality time before the state tournament. ” said Coach Brent Martindale. “The players that came off the bench did a great job, and we were able to rest a few injuries.” Martindale praised Senior Setter Aryann Hicken and Freshman Setter Aspen Hoffman for handling most of the setting duties with Lythgoe out.

Wasatch was led by Junior Tori Dorius again with 13 kills, 3 blocks and 7 aces. Sidney Ostergaard added 5 kills, 5 digs and 3 aces.

WHS will open up the State tournament against Region 6 #2 West HS, which will be a rematch from earlier this season, when West visited Wasatch in a pre-season dual and came out with a 3-0 victory over the Wasps. That match will begin at 9:00am on Friday, November 3rd.

Game Recap

The Wasatch High School volleyball team sent off their 2017 Seniors in style Tuesday night in the Nest with a quick win in 3 games over the winless Provo Bulldogs. After a difficult loss to region 8 #2 Springville last week, the Wasps got back on track with a mostly efficient night, to give WHS their 5th wins in the last 6 matches.

The win gives Wasatch 6 region wins on the season to secure what looks like a 3rd place region spot with just one match left against Maple Mountain on Thursday, Oct. 26th. As the 3rd seed, the Wasps will go to the State Tournament for the second straight year. It also assures WHS their second straight winning season at 6-3 in region 8 and 16-10 overall. The 5A State Tournament will be played on November 3-4 at Utah Valley University.

WHS was lead once again by 5A kills leader Tori Dorius, who had 10 kills and 2 blocks. Sidney Ostergaard added 8 kills and 3 digs, and Sarah Mauer contributed 5 kills and 2 blocks. Senior Libero Shelby Huntington had 11 digs.

Game Recap

The WHS Girls Volleyball team’s 4 match win streak in Region 8 came to a screeching halt in the Springville gym on Friday, October 13th, when the Red Devils completely overwhelmed the Wasps in 3 games. The loss keeps Wasatch in the 3rd place position in Region 8 with only 2 matches left in the season.

Coach Brent Martindale had only words of praise for the Devils, however, and words of praise for his team, when speaking about the match. “We have had a very good 2 weeks in our region, with the highlight of beating Skyridge at our place, which was huge. I think tonight, we were just emotionally exhausted against a very precise Springville team. They completely outplayed us. But I am still proud of our team. We’ve accomplished a great deal.”

The Wasps had a strong chance to take over the 2nd spot from the Red Devils in Region 8 if they had pulled off a victory. Wasatch can guarantee a 3rd seed for the state tournament with a victory over Provo on Senior night, Tuesday, October 17th in the Nest.

Wasatch was led by Tori Dorius with 6 kills and 2 blocks. The Provo match will be the final home games for the Wasp Seniors: Shelby Huntington, Brynli Buehler, Bret Lloyd, Aryann Hicken, Lacey Kelsch and Abi Wright. Sophomores begin at 3:30pm, JV and Freshmen at 4:45pm and the Varsity begin at around 6:00pm.

Game Recap

Wasatch High School Girls Volleyball scored their biggest victory of the season by outlasting #1 Region 8, and the State #5 ranked Skyridge Falcons in Heber City on Tuesday, October 10th in 5 games. The match went back and forth with each team trading wins and leading to a tight game 5, where the Wasps served for match point and won 15-13 with an ace by Junior Jen Lythgoe.

WHS was lead by Junior Tori Dorius who had 18 kills, 3 blocks and 2 aces. Also playing well for the Wasps were Brynli Buehler who had 9 kills and 4 blocks, and Sidney Ostergaard with 8 kills and 9 digs. Lythgoe had season highs 39 assists, 3 blocks and 8 aces to go along with her 11 digs. Senior Libero Shelby Huntington had 12 digs, Senior middle Lacey Kelsch had 4 kills and 4 blocks and Bret Lloyd had 3 kills and 10 digs.

“It was a total team contribution.” mentioned head coach Brent Martindale. “An engine with all parts working together, about the best we’ve done this season. We’re peaking at a very good time.”

Martindale praised Dorius as a leader with a big night of stats, but also said key kills and digs by Ostergaard in game 5, and Buehler with big hits and blocks all night, stood out as helping with the win. “And Jen ran the team as a true leader.” said Martindale about junior setter Lythgoe.

The win over Skyridge helps the Wasps in trying to take over the second seed–or even possibly the 1st seed–as the state tournament approaches on November 3-4 at Utah Valley University. With 3 matches left, Wasatch needs to win out to hope for the better seed.

Next up is a re-match at Springville, with WHS looking to avenge a bitter loss to the #2 Devils in 3 games at home back in September. “We are really looking forward to playing them again. We didn’t play well last time and it’s left a bitter taste in out mouths.” said coach Martindale. The match at Springville has been moved from the Thursday, Oct. 12th original date to Friday, October 13th to accommodate the modified football schedules the week before Fall Break.

The last home match, and Senior Night for Wasatch will be next Tuesday, October 17th in the Nest. Sophomores begin at 3:30pm, JV and Freshmen at 4:45pm and Varisty at 6:00pm.

Game Recap

The final Region 8 game for Wasatch and Springville. Senior Recognition Night for Myia Hoggan, Mickey Scovil, Hannah Johnston, Mikayla Hall, Macy Risto and Addy Larsen. The final game of the year for the losing team and the 5A playoffs for the winning team. A winner take all game for qualifying for state was at stake. The teams knew what was on the line and the crowd did too. It was an electrifying, drama filled night at Wright-Tree Stadium under the lights.

The Wasatch Wasps began with great possession and an attacking mindset. It was beautiful, energetic soccer by Wasatch and Springville seemed to be on their heels the first ten minutes. Each team settled in with some really good soccer, the Wasps having the run of play and most opportunities on net during the first half. The Red Devils seemed to score the first goal on their only good chance of the first twenty minutes but the apparent goal was called off because of offside. This seemed to re-energize the Wasps who did score, after multiple chances, in the 28th minute. Mickey Scovil attacked from the outside right midfield and sent a wonderful cross to Addy Larsen who lofted a beautiful shot over the outstretched arms of the goalkeeper. There were several other excellent chances for Wasatch to score, but they could not put the ball away in the net. With a fantastic, offensive showing for the whole half, there just was not the 3 or 4 goals that could have been on the scoreboard.

The crowd was spectacularly supportive. It was HVSC Night (Heber Valley Soccer Club) at the girls soccer game, and the west side was quite full with future Wasatch players. A lot of the regular fans, new fans, and Wasp football players were constantly singing, cheering, and yelling their support for the soccer team. It was a lot of fun to be a part of such a raucous, fun filled atmosphere. The players were energized and ready to come out the second half.

Springville had plans of their own as they came out in the second half with renewed energy. The Red Devils came out a blazing with multiple offensive opportunities. Bre Eaves and Tara Warner, two sophomore standouts, were able to bait the Wasp defense into committing to the ball, missing and then being punished by excellent goals in the 49th and 55th minute. After making a couple of anxious attempts at going for the ball, the defense settled down and the Wasp offense once again began to attack the back line of the Springville defense.

With twenty minutes left, it appeared as if Wasatch had tied the game up with a goal but it was waved off by the assistant referee. The Wasps did not give up. There were several other opportunities in the last 10 minutes that looked like sure goals. The first one was a shot from 3 yards out on the far post after a scrum for the ball off a corner had bounced around to the foot of a Wasatch player. The finish looked like a sure thing but bounced directly off the post, away from any follow up opportunity. The second good chance was a breakaway that was snuffed out by the goalkeeper as she came out to meet the attacking Wasp.

The game ended with a rush of emotion realizing the end of the season had come prematurely. What an exciting, all out soccer game for the crowd and both teams. It was a fitting ending for the Wasps as five of the six region losses were all by one goal and each of the games were ones that Wasatch had plenty of opportunities to win. Region 8 was extremely tough and every game was a nail biting, close experience with a lot of excellent play and a lot of heart shown by the players.

What a fantastic, exciting brand of soccer the girls played all year. Never giving up and supporting each other all year. The team will miss the six seniors next season. Thank you, Myia Hoggan, Hannah Johnston, Addy Larsen, Mikayla Hall, Macy Risto and Mickey Scovil.
