CRAIGMONT — Hannah Miller served 24 consecutive points with eight aces Saturday to spearhead a rare shutout set win for Highland of Craigmont as the Huskies took a 25-0, 25-22, 22-25, 25-20 nonleague prep volleyball win against Timberline of Weippe.
It was Highland’s second outing of the day, having earlier fallen in five sets to Lapwai.

Genesee rules own tourney
GENESEE — Genesee won the Pea and Lentil Tournament, sweeping Pomeroy in the championship 25-10, 25-14 to avenge a loss to the Pirates last weekend.
“We kind of had our sights set on that, to be honest,” Genesee coach Pete Crowley said. “We played them last week at their tournament (the Border Battle) and had won our first four and lost our fifth (match) to them.
“I think they’re the only team we’ve lost to in the last couple weeks, so we had our sights set on hoping they were going to make it to the championship too, and we were pretty stoked to get it done like we did.”

On the day, Genesee was led by Molly Hanson (29 kills), Lucie Ranisate (28 kills, 11 blocks), Riley Maguire (eight aces) and Regan Zenner (35 digs). Hanson and teammate Carly Allen were named to the all-tournament team.
Crowley lauded his team’s “mental toughness.”
“We gave away a few sets,” he said, “but each time, (we) battled back and regained control of the match. I was proud of the way we competed all day long.”
Deary won the consolation bracket.
