VOLLEYBALL: La Grande a land of victory and disappointment

Baker bests La Grande in two

LA GRANDE Baker improved its Greater Oregon League volleyball record to 4-3 Thursday with a 15-8, 15-6 victory over La Grande.

We played really well, said Baker coach Michele McCauley.

We did a nice job of setting up our blocks, and we hit smart.

McCauley said senior Cassie Scrivner, in particular, had a strong outing.

Cassie had a great game, McCauley said. She really put the ball in the holes.

Scrivner finished the match 8 for 8 serving and added seven kills.

Jill Peacock was 12 for 12 serving with an ace, and had five kills. Katie Bogart added six kills; Mary Kreger was 6 for 6 serving with an ace; Lexie Johnson had two solo blocks and four deflected blocks; and Rose Supan was 6 for 6 hitting with two kills, had four solo blocks, and four deflected blocks.

Baker travels to Hermiston Tuesday for a non-league match beginning at 5 p.m.
