(BRANDON HANSEN/Chewelah Independent)
Chewelah played close against one-loss Liberty in a friendly non-league contest on Tuesday, but the Cougars fell at home to the Lady Lancers 25-15, 17-25, 21-25, 21-25. Helping prep Chewelah for the upcoming district tournament, the Cougars looked like they’ll be able to battle against even the very best the south can throw into the tournament.
Lilly Kirry had 13 kills, 13 digs and two blocks, along with two aces for the Cougars, while Elle Carpenter dished out 23 assists.
Chewelah well to 9-5 on the year and will host Lind-Ritzville-Sprague in District 7 2B tournament action on Nov. 5 at 6 p.m.
