Senior Ayonna Lentz lets a ball fly during the Lady Spartans home tri-match last Thursday.

   PRIEST RIVER — The Spartan volleyball team won one and lost one at Thursday’s home tri-match, but not in the right order, as the home team beat Orofino easily in a non-league contest but lost in five games to Timberlake with league title implications on the line. Priest River (14-8, 4-1 IML) had a shot at going perfect in Intermountain League play and picking up the IML title outright with a win. Starting with a 25-15 first game win the Spartans seemed to be on their way before a strong response from the (10-8, 5-1 IML) Tigers, who tied the match at two games a piece before pulling out a 15-11 win in the decider.

   “Timberlake played really well and we weren’t as prepared as we could have been,” Spartan coach Kati Bodecker said. Adding, “We put up a good fight but ultimately made too many mental errors.”

   After the loss Priest River played their final match of the season on Tuesday at Kellogg with a chance to earn the title of IML Co-Champs.

With a win a coin-toss would decide district seeding between the Spartans and Tigers.

   “It’s a very important game,” Bodecker said about Tuesday’s test. “Kellogg always plays us tough and we certainly wont overlook them knowing what’s at stake.”

   Results from the Kellogg match were unavailable at press time.

Melissa Trost had 10 kills, Taryn Eldore 24 assists and Karly Douglas 16 digs in the Lady Spartan’s loss.

   The 3A District I Volleyball Tournament starts on Oct. 16 and continues on Oct. 18 at Lakeland High School. As the #1 seed Priest River would play the #4 seed at 7 p.m. on Oct. 16. As the #2 seed Priest River would play the #3 seed at 5:30 p.m. on Oct. 16.
