The volleyball season came to an end last Tuesday night for Chewelah. The Lady Cougars soundly defeated Riverside 25-15 in the opening game of their district loser-out match, but they could not follow up on their early victory. The Lady Rams rebounded from the loss and won the next three games: 25-12, 25-13, and 29-27.
The Lady Cougar concluded the season with a 6-10 overall record and a fifth place finish in the final Northeast A League standings. Although it was obvious from the beginning of the season that they lacked height, the Cougars still battled hard in every encounter. There was no lack of effort, just a lack of height. Coming up, there is some height in the sophomore and freshman classes, so there is hope for the future.
Savanah McMillin’s eight kills led the Cougars at the net, and Brittney Wuesthoff set 20 assists.
Kaitlin Krouse had three blocks and Katelyn Garner finished the game with 10 digs.
