POTLATCH — Playing their second match in a span of a few hours and their fourth match in three days Wednesday, the Potlatch Loggers willed their way to a 25-15, 23-25, 25-18, 25-15 win against Whitepine League foe Kamiah not long after falling to Genesee on the road.
The Loggers (9-5, 7-5) have had to reschedule several matches because of a recent two-week quarantine brought about because of a coronavirus case at the school.
“Credit to the girls,” Potlatch coach Ron Dinsmoor said. “As tired as they were, they fought back and took that third set, and we finally started getting our legs back under us.”
Olivia Wise piled up 12 kills, Josie Larson had 15 assists, Taylor Carpenter added seven digs and the duo of Alyssa Felton and Carpenter combined to serve 39-for-43.
The Loggers will turn right around to host Logos at 7 p.m. today.
