In battle of Skyline A unbeatens, Butte Falls comes out on top
KLAMATH FALLS ' Butte Falls emerged unscathed in the battle of unbeaten Skyline A League Southern Division volleyball teams Friday.
The Loggers handed Hosanna Christian its first division loss with a 25-23, 26-28, 25-20, 25-18 victory at Henley Middle School.
They passed the ball really well and kept the ball in play, Butte Falls coach Mike Harrington said. We stayed on top of them by serving them tough and keeping them off balance.
Seniors Breanna Smeltz and Asia Million led Butt Falls (8-6, 6-0 Sky A) in serving with three aces each.
— Both players swung the momentum the Loggers way in games — and 4. Million served points 18-24 in the third game to put the Loggers at the brink of victory. Smeltz's seven straight points in the fourth game took Butte Falls from a 15-14 lead to a 21-14 margin.
Senior outside Kathi St. George gave Butte Falls a boost at the net. St. George registered a team-high 19 kills.
(St. George) had some smart hitting at key times, said Harrington.
Butte Falls senior middle Cassy Bartel provided two blocks and was 17-of-18 serving.
Other team leaders for Butte Falls were Smeltz with 36 assist and Million with 18 digs.
It could have went either way, said Harrington, but the Lady Loggers refuse to lose. In the end it was the two big serving runs that turned the match in our favor.
