SEELEY LAKE - The Seeley-Swan Lady Blackhawks played a match on the road against Victor Sept. 15 before finally getting to play on their home court. The threat of fire subsided and the smoke cleared allowing the Ladies to host Lincoln Sept. 16.

Lady Blackhawks Head Coach Tammy Lewis said the team got in a couple of solid practices. She thinks it will still be a few weeks before they will be at full capacity but noted that the season is nearly half over.

"It kind of feels like I am making excuses for our performance each week, but in all my years of coaching, this stands out as the hardest start to a season that I have ever been a part of," said Lewis.

Versus Victor

The Lady Blackhawks came out strong against the Pirates taking the first two games, 28-26 and 25-19. The scrappy Pirates, backed by their fans on their home court, came back and took the next three games and the match, 23-25, 21-25 and 10-15.

Chloe Robbins and Klaire Kovatch led the Ladies offense with 8 kills each while Autumn Morse had 5 aces and 10 assists. On the defensive side Tanisha Rhoades led with 27 digs.

Versus Lincoln

The Lady Blackhawks were expecting to have their hands full with Lincoln, being that the Lynx had defeated the Pirates just one week ago. They were right as the Lynx took game one, 19-25.

The Lady Blackhawks answered right back with a 25-18 victory in the second game but were unable to fend off the Lynx in game three, 22-25. The Ladies fought hard and took the fourth game, 25-20, and pushed the match to a fifth game.

The Lady Blackhawks took a five-point lead early in the game and were able to fend off the Lynx to the 15-10 victory and take the match.

Ashley Miller led the Ladies with 10 kills while Autumn Morse had 13 assists and Emily Mercado pounded in 5 aces.

Tanisha Rhoades again led the defense with 17 digs. Miller, Chloe Robbins and Klaire Kovatch each had one stuff block.

This week the Ladies host Drummond Sept. 19 with games starting at 5:30 p.m. They then head to Arlee for an all-day tournament Sept. 23 with the first game at 8:30 a.m.
