Pe Ell did all it could to dig up Naselle’s spikes, but the Comets’ serving was too tough to overcome as the Trojans fell in straight sets (25-17, 25-9, 25-17) Thursday in 1B Columbia Valley League play.
Other than a tough second set, where a Naselle player served 12-straight points, Pe Ell coach Hollie Briggs was pleased with how her team competed against the Comets.
“We played better than we did against them in the preseason Raymond tournament,” Briggs said. “We held it pretty good.”
Libero Ava Bush had a ton of rolling digs, laying out for spikes, and was commended by Briggs for her hustle. Charlie Carper, Abby Cox and Payton Peterson were praised for their net play and each tallied one solid block with a ton of touches, Briggs said.
As a team, the Trojans served 40 for 41, a big improvement in an area they’ve struggled in this season.
Pe Ell (3-3, 3-3 overall) travels to Columbia Adventist on Tuesday.
