Kootenai’s volleyball team faced Mullan Tuesday in a district loser-out match.

The Warriors’ most recent meeting with the Tigers (Oct. 5) ended in a five-set loss for Kootenai, but was the team’s longest match of the season.

The girls closed their regular season Oct. 16 at Clark Fork, falling in straight sets by a score of 8-25, 15-25, 19-25.

Tayva Maitland had three kills along with five digs and two assists in the effort.

“We were missing both our middles today,” Coach Kaili Gentry said, “but the girls adjusted and played hard until the very end.”

Kaylee Lupo dished out four assists to go with two kills and two digs.

Kootenai fell to Wallace Oct. 14 in three sets, 14-25, 5-25, 9-25.

Kaylee had four kills and four assists in the loss, an Mahalia Loucks added three kills and one dig.

The Warriors stole a set from Genesis Prep Oct. 12 in a four-set loss, Kaylee handing out six assists to go with three kills in the effort.

“The girls had some really good moments,” Coach Gentry said. “Unfortunately there was just a lot of communication errors and missed serves that determined the outcome of the game.”
