The Glide volleyball team held off Lost River in a five set thriller Saturday in a Southern Cascade League playoff match. The Wildcats win gives them a birth into the state playoffs. Set scores were 16-25, 25-18, 21-25, 25-23, 15-10. The Wildcats (12-11) were led by Ruby Livingston who had 14 kills and nine digs. Kylie Anderson added 12 kills, eight digs and four blocks. Kamryn Aumock had 20 digs while Teagan Triplett had seven kills and 13 digs. “It was an important game for us,” Ruby Livingston said. “I think the pressure of that got to us a bit in the beginning. We all wanted it so bad that we weren’t playing our game. Once we settled down we started playing like we know how.” Glide trailed 0-1 and 1-2 after three sets before winning both the last two sets to rally for the win. “The girls’ nerves were apparent the first set, our error count was high,” Glide coach Stephanie Furlong said. “They picked it up in the second set but Lost River came to play, they were not going to hand it to us.” Glide beat Lost River on Tuesday earlier this week in four sets in the regular season finale before the league playoffs. “The whole night was a battle,” Furlong said. “It was encouraging to see my girls fight for the win. They showed a lot of heart tonight.” Glide will play Tuesday at Bonanza at 5:15 p.m. If the Wildcats win they will host a first round state playoff game and if they lose they will play on the road in the first round. “It’s very exciting for us to be in the playoffs,” Livingston said. “Most of the girls on our team haven’t experienced that and I look forward to what we can accomplish.”
