The Badger varsity volleyball team chalked up
another loss Tuesday evening as they hosted old
league rivals the St. Maries Lumberjacks, but
their level of intensity was cranked to high for
what coach Janis Tucker called by far their best
match of the season.
That could bode well as the Badgers, who are 1-3
on the season in league, go into their final
league match ups in the days ahead.
While the Badgers won one of four sets, every
match was close and play went right down to the
wire; 21-25, 25-16, 23-25, 20-25, with the
Badgers serving and blocking strong throughout.
Mckenzie MacDonald contributed 10 kills and nine
digs, Jasmine Hill came up with 10 kills,
Camille Awbrey had nine kills and five blocks,
Desirae Minor came in with 22 digs and two ace
serves and Savannah Woods had 32 assists and

assists and six digs, Hill had eight kills and
MacDonald had three ace serves, four kills and
Thursday's league match at Kellogg was only a
little better, with the Badgers going 1-3;
17-25, 25-17, 16-25, 16-25.
Allyson Merrifield, who earlier in the season
injured her hand during warmups, came through
with three ace serves, seven digs and nine
kills, Woods had 12 assists and 17 digs and
Kendra Merrit had two blocks.
This Thursday, the Badgers travel to Priest
River to take on the Spartans in league action
at 6:30 p.m. Tuesday, October 2, then they play

6:30 p.m. against Timberlake. The Badgers' final
