With just two weeks left for volleyball

season, Libby Lady Loggers continue to strive for a place in

postseason play.

As the Ladies traveled to Whitefish on

Friday, they found it difficult to execute the original game

plan.

“Serving is our biggest strength,”

Loggers coach, Cindy Ostrem-Johnston said. “We only served 81.7

percent.”

Against Polson the Ladies lost in four

sets, 21-25, 25-23, 23-25, and 19-25.

“I was really proud. The girls played

their hearts out,” Johnston said.

The Loggers begin divisionals Nov. 3 to

5. Time and place is yet-to-be determined.

The Troy Lady Trojans were confident in

their win in three sets against Plains.

On Oct. 29, the Lady Trojans faced

disappointment, losing to Bigfork and Eureka in four sets.

“We still have a chance to make it to

state,” Trojans coach, Sandra Beal said.
