FORMIDABLE FRONT - Savage Heat netters Katelyn Christensen and Savannah Roosma rise up after Seeley-Swan's Aspen Conley hits a set in Hot Springs Thursday.

HOT SPRINGS – There is no shame in losing when you get better in the bargain.

Coach Alisha Pablo and her improving Savage Heat netters lost to visiting Seeley-Swan in four tough sets in Hot Springs Thursday. Two of the better teams in the Western C division this fall, the District 13C Black Hawks and the 14C Savage Heat could end up seeing each other again when the Western C tournament is played.

"We look forward to playing them again if we get the chance, Seeley-Swan is a tough team," Pablo offered. "We are playing well and still improving, and just need to keep playing and see where the season takes us."

The Heat were to have played at Plains Tuesday and will host 14C-leading Charlo Thursday. The Heat will also visit St. Regis for another 14C match Tuesday, October 6.

The defending 14C champs, Charlo has almost everyone back from last year's squad and have been impressive again this season. Pablo knows her Heat can play with the powerful Lady Vikings.

"We look forward to seeing them, we will line up and see how we match up," she said referencing the multiple times the two teams ended up seeing each other in the tournament season last fall. "We need to be quick on defense, play well on the back row, avoid any hiccups on our attack and keep our rhythm going."

In the meantime, Pablo says she can see improvement from her charges each and every time they play. "We get a little better every time out," she said. "This is a fun team to be around and I look forward to seeing how far we go."

Katelyn Christensen led the Heat against Seeley-Swan with 12 kills, eight digs and six service aces, Savannah Roosma was good for 10 kills and four blocks, Lizzy Fisher dished out 16 set assists and Lilly Winn added eight digs.

Christensen's all-star cousin Seeley-Swan senior Klaire Kovatch, who recently signed a track and field scholarship to attend Colorado State University, led the Hawks with 11 kills, six blocks and six digs, Bethany Hoag added 10 kills, Aspen Conley had 12 assists and Ava Thornsberry three aces.
