In a non-league volleyball opener, the Klahowya Eagles defeated the Crosspoint Warriors 3-0 Tuesday at Klahowya. 

The Eagles had 15 assists from Rachel Bailey, who was also a nearly perfect 17 of 18 serving. Maile Lueck finished with 10 digs in the back row while Katie Cooper had seven kills. Bella Young went 12-for-12 serving as Klahowya served 90 percent as a team. Alyssa Hintz, a freshman, was 7-of-7 serving and had three kills.

Crosspoint was missing its senior setter, Kenzie Anderson, who is still working her way back from a knee injury, Warriors coach Ellen Baxter said. Anderson is expected back soon and Ashlyn Hanson fulfilled her role with just 10 practices in the setter position. 

“She did a mighty fine job, and one we cannot complain about,” Baxter said. “We are not disappointed in the loss tonight, but rather excited about what the team will look like with a few more practices and focused drills.”

Madison Jacobsen finished with 15 digs and three blocks, Kennedy Breda added eight digs, three kills and two aces and assists each for Crosspoint. Ella Anderson also backed up the defense with nine digs and Hanson contributed four assists, Olivia Duryea had three assists and Holli Hunter added three kills.
