It’s been a rough season for the Logan High School volleyball team.
The Lady Cats only have a handful of wins.
Logan, though, was able to pick up another “W” on Tuesday night with a five-set victory at home over Lincoln County on Senior Night.
The Lady Cats won by the scores of 19-25, 25-18, 15-25, 25-13, 15-8.
Logan coach Chelsey Stowers said it was the best effort all season by her varsity team.
“The varsity played their best game yet in my eyes,” Stowers said. “With it being Senior Night, they were all pumped up and determined to win their last home game. They came together as a team and were talking and hustled their butts off. This group of girls works well with one another and when they are on, they are on fire.”
Stowers said all three of her seniors played a key part in the win.
“All three stepped it up,” she said. “Katelyn Grimmett had a tremendous game and was on with her hitting and blocking. Summer Napier did a good job setting and was on with her tips and her serves were up. She also did a good job digging some hits. Haley Meade just came back from an ankle injury that happened early in the season, but she did well. She had some nice passes and digs and did all around a good job for us. It’s always hard coming off an injury, especially an ankle and with her being out as long as she was, that makes it tough too. I didn’t want to push her too much.”
Stowers said other also played well.
“As for the other girls, Herrera had a great game,” she said. “She was on all night long with her hits and digs. I would say it was one of her best games she has had all season. Ward did a great job setting and had some nice blocks up at the net along side of Herrera. Workman and Morgan both did great all the way around on the floor. They had good serves, hits and nice passes.”
Stowers said her seniors will be missed.
“It’s always sad to lose seniors, especially because these girls are good girls, but I am looking forward to having new seniors next year which is going to be a big group of my girls and I’m looking forward to a new season,” she said.
Logan also won the JV match over Lincoln County, 24-26, 25-10, 25-9.
On Oct. 10, Logan’s varsity team lost at Wyoming East in five, 25-21, 25-22, 19-25, 16-25, 12-15. Logan’s JV team won over East 25-19, 21-25, 25-20.
Logan and Wyoming East met again on Monday at home. Logan lost the varsity match 25-22, 22-25, 20-25, 23-25 and also fell in the JV match, 25-12, 18-25, 13-25.
