HELENA -- The Helena High Bengals volleyball team stares down the tough task of taking on the Helena Capital Bruins twice a year, and in the second matchup of this year, the Bengals are looking to limit their mistakes.
"If we can eliminate our unforced errors and give them a chance to make some errors and just play clean on our side, good things will happen," said head coach Lindsey Day.
The old adage of sports is that it's as much, if not more, of a mental challenge than a physical one. Members of the Bengals coaching staff and players know this far too well, which is why in their rematch against their crosstown rivals, they are grabbing hold of that mental challenge before they even step out onto the court.
"We're going to go in with a mindset of don't beat ourselves," said Day. "If we can try to eliminate our unforced errors and just try to keep the ball in play and be scrappy defensively and execute on our offense, get the ball to our hitters at the right time with some seams and some good cross shots and line shots, I think we can have some success."
The Bengals will look to have that success when they take on the Helena Capital Bruins on Oct. 17 at 7 p.m.
