PATEROS – Pateros remains unbeaten this year despite a bit of a scare from Entiat on Oct. 19.

The No. 7 state 1B ranked Nannies won a close first set, 25-23, then cruised with wins of 25-14 and 25-9.

“It’s been great to get so much practice at getting up and playing on Saturday morning this season,” Pateros coach Gene Dowers said. “That’s what we have to do at districts and state.

“It doesn’t come naturally to lots of young people,” he said. “Today was one of those days where it took a little time to get into gear.”

Pateros committed 12 errors in the first set.

“None of us liked the way the first set felt and the girls decided to fix it,” Dowers said. “In the next two sets, we didn’t miss a serve and scored 14 aces.

“Our attack errors nearly went away and we got connected again on defense,” the coach said. “ This team has a real talent for getting back on track.”

COULEE DAM – Entiat powered past Lake Roosevelt 25-20, 25-22 and 25-9 in a non-league match Oct. 19.

“This was the first game in a while where they were looking like a team, trusting in each other and moving on the court in unison,” Lake Roosevelt coach Nate Piturachsatit said. “After the second loss, we fell back into our old routine of long faces and lack of trust in our teammates.

“It is a step in the right direction as we fought hard for two matches before losing it in the third. I’m looking for a strong finish for our team as we end the season.”

The Raiders committed 66 unforced errors in the match.

“Essentially, we win the game for the other team,” Piturachsatit said. “We have to stop making so many hitting and passing errors if we want to win a game.”

The Raiders (2-9 overall, 1-5 2B league) get a week off before hosting Liberty Bell (8-3, 3-2) on Tuesday, Oct. 29, when the team’s seven seniors will be honored.

Lake Roosevelt stats: Kammi Rosenbaum 3 aces; Mikel Friedlander 3 aces; Kassadi Boutain 19 kills, 5 aces; Cheyenne Marconi 4 aces, 2 blocks; Kayley Duclos 3 aces.
