The Lady Devils volleyball team has had a bit of a back and forth this week, winning their match on Tuesday against Monticello, then losing both matches on Friday — one to Panguitch and one to North Summit.

The Devils outlasted the Monticello Lady Buckaroos with a three-set victory, scoring the win 26-24, 25-22 and 25-23.

Grand County ran into a bit of trouble later in the week at the Sevier Valley Invite, losing a two-set matchup to the Panguitch Lady Bobcats, 25-13 and 25-22. The Devils also dropped a match to the North Summit Braves in another two sets, falling behind with a score of 25-21 and 25-15.

Despite suffering two losses back-to-back, The Lady Devils have been bumped up in the statewide and national rankings. According to MaxPreps, Grand County volleyball was raised six spots to 44th overall in the state, and 8th overall in the Utah 3A rankings.

The girls will face off against Manti this Friday, Oct. 13.
