RIGGINS The Salmon River girls posted a straight-sets win over Summit last Saturday, Sept. 9, marking the Patriots’ fourth straight loss following their three-win start.
Summit’s week also included losses at Nezperce, Logos and Kendrick.
Elsewhere earlier in the week, Kamiah beat Clearwater Valley and Potlatch, Clearwater Valley lost to Timberline and Grangeville beat McCall in straight sets (25-23, 25-21, 25-21).
“We came back from a six-point deficit in the third game,” GHS coach Cheyenne Hudson said. “Paige Lindsley, Kate Lutz and Mikayla Ruzicka all played great defensively and Jakaili Norman had eight kills.”
The scores reflected improvement in McCall’s play, but also a little less rigor from Grangeville, which had posted a more lopsided win over the Vandals on opening night at GHS.
“We played a little more scattered, and made more mistakes,” Hudson said.
Grangeville was set to host Colton after the print deadline Tuesday night, Sept. 12, and Salmon River had a trip to Garden Valley that night.
Grangeville is set to host the Savages and several other teams — including Prairie, Clearwater Valley and Kamiah — at GHS this Saturday, Sept. 16, for the annual Grangeville Tournament.
