Lady J-Hawks win Jefferson Smack Down Invitational

Outlook staff writer

The J-Hawk volleyball team had an excellent week, defeating Columbus on Oct. 3 and Shepherd on Oct. 5, then winning the Jefferson Smack Down Invitational in Boulder on Oct. 7.
Coach Colette Webber said the tournament was invite-only and included Class B teams who went to State last year, or are favorites to go this year.
“The girls left at 4:30 a.m. the morning after Homecoming and played their hearts out,” she said.
Webber said the J-Hawks beat Three Forks in the morning pool 25-19 and 25-20, then split with Colstrip 25-20 and 20-25 and Choteau 25-19, 23-25.
“That put them first in their pool with only two losses. The top four teams went to the Gold Pool and the bottom three went to the Silver Pool. We then played a whole new pool play with the top four teams in the tournament to decide the overall winner of the four best teams with wins and points,” Webber said “We lost to Three Forks in the first Gold Pool game 25-13 and 25-19.  The girls were just flat tired, but after a pep talk […] they came out and beat Jefferson 25-18, 25-16.”  
They knew if they beat Florence in both games they would take the title through their win and loss records.  
“They showed true grit and came out and beat Florence 25-17, 25-20,” Webber said. 
“This was a great tournament to show them they can play with some of the best teams in the state. Everyone there was good and the games moved fast. We learned a lot as a team about pulling together and giving their all for each other,” the coach concluded.
The J-Hawks head to a tournament in Big Timber Saturday and then play Red Lodge on Tuesday.
