Laramie High School prepares for the State Tournament and is expected to do well against the top teams in the state. The Laramie Plainsmen Volleyball team has had a great regular season. 

LHS managed to win the Casper Invite and beat some of the best teams in the state. 

LHS plans to make it to State for the second year in a row. 

Last season, LHS played Kelly Walsh in State and ended up falling short. 

With the regular season at an end, LHS started regionals in Cheyenne. 

The regional game was a rematch game against Cheyenne Central and LHS wanted to get redemption. 

With LHS being the underdogs, LHS had to have a chip on their shoulder and prove that they were a better team and have a better spot in the State Tournament. 

“We played a team that beat us, and we had to play a little harder than the last game to win,” Alexis Stucky said. 

The game started and LHS had a great start. 

CHS was not backing down and the game was going back and forth. 

After a long rematch game, LHS pulled away and got the victory to push them forward and move on to the next opponent. 

“After we beat Central again, I felt confident and believed that we are the best team in the state,” Stucky said. 

The next game in regionals was against Cheyenne East. 

“East beat us the first time we played, and we beat them recently. The game is always a close 

game when we play them and it goes down to who wants to win more,” Stucky said. 

With the next game underway, LHS fought hard against one of their better opponents. 

East did not back down and gave it a fight to take advantage in the game. 

With two of the LHS starters injured, it made it hard for them to gain their confidence back. 

“Every time we would get back in the game, they would score again and pull away,” Stucky said. 

East ended up beating LHS and both teams advanced into the State Tournament. 

With LHS being the number three team in the seed, the Lady Plainsmen must play the number two seed on the other side of the bracket. 

“I honestly feel we have a chance to go to State again and win this time, my teammates are great, and we all play well together,” Stucky said. 

LHS plays in the State Tournament this Thursday, Friday, and Saturday.
