The Wood River High School volleyball team keeps on winning.

The Wolverines are now 12-2 overall, and 5-0 in the Great Basin 7 Conference, after taking down five straight matches when Wood River traveled to Jerome for the Jerome Invitational.

“We focused on limiting our errors today,” WRHS head coach Kristyn Rutland said. “[We’re] speeding up our offense and came out on top. It was a full team effort today.”

Wood River made haste of the competition by taking down Ridgevue (25-12, 25-16), Buhl (25-12, 25-18), Filer (25-13, 19-25, 15-5), Nampa (25-15, 25-17) and Gooding (25-18, 25-19).
