The Lady Indians have one match remaining in the regular season. They travel to Century on Thursday, Oct. 14 to play at 7 p.m. To take a match from Century would be sweet but won’t change much in the district standings as far as Preston is concerned. It would, however, add to the team’s confidence and momentum going into the district tournament next week.
At home on senior night Oct. 5, the Lady Indians had a fantastic game against Pocatello. Though they lost the match, they took it to a full five sets fighting hard the whole way.
Preston won the first set 25-16 but dropped the next two 16-25 and 22-25. In the fourth set it was all Preston. They came back strong to win 25-13. In the fifth and final set it was close but Pocatello held the edge and won it 15-12 to take the match.
“They fought hard,” said Coach Karaska Haskell who couldn’t be more pleased with her team’s progress. Every coach wants their team to peak at the end of the season and Preston seems to be doing just that.
Khloe Hobson recorded nine kills, Reese Swainston, Liz Harris and Lucy Zollinger all added five each. Adree Selley and Dru Despain had six aces each in the contest.
