TRUCKEE — The Dayton volleyball team ran into “a solid six players” as Dayton coach Monica Halverson put it and ended up losing in three straight games to Truckee 22-25, 17-25, 13-25 on Friday.
Dayton fell to 16-3 and 4-2 in league.
“Our game and mental toughness was knocked off from the very first serve,” Halverson said. “Truckee has a solid six players that challenged us in every way. We tried to fight back, but making mistakes, like missed serves and terrible passing causes my team to have to fight harder to get ahead.”
Brianda Diaz had eight kills and 11 digs, Rachel Hadley had six digs and Shalia Powell added 14 assists and five digs for the Dust Devils.
LOVELOCK — Yerington (18-4, 4-0) swept Lovelock 25-10, 25-13, 25-12. Kassidy Lommori had 18 kills and five digs, Deseree Landa and Courtney Morose each had six digs, Ashley Rife had four kills and 19 assists, Rachel Dane had nine digs and Jordan Bobrick added four kills for the Lions.
