Loggers Sweep Past Winlock for Road Victory


Onalaska made quick work of Winlock, defeating the Cardinals in straight sets (25-20, 25-16, 25-17) on the road Thursday in 2B Central League play.

The Loggers took advantage of a couple key Cardinals out, including senior middle Madison Vigre, and used an excellent night of hitting to put the match away.

Onalaska junior Morgan Hamilton spearheaded the attack with a match-high 13 kills and only three errors to go with 9 of 10 serving.

“Her hitting was fantastic tonight,” Onalaska coach Jenny Hamilton said.

Hannah James added five kills and seven digs, Raelee Holmes contributed 18 digs and 8 of 9 serving and Desi Smith had great serve receive and passing, digging nine balls and serving 15 of 16.

Dakota Hamilton tallied a match-high 19 assists to go with two kills, while Andi Oliver registered two block kills.

“Winlock’s crowd was so loud,” Hamilton said. “There’s something about that gym.”

Winlock’s Addison Hall led the Cards in kills with six, while Raegan Lester and Kindyl Kelly each added five kills. Kelly was the high-point scorer from serves with 11, including four aces.

“We fell short in our serving consistency tonight,” Winlock coach Chastity Pennington said. 

Winlock (4-5 3-4 league) travels to Stevenson on Thursday. Onalaska (8-3, 4-1 league) heads to Adna on Tuesday.
