The Lake Roosevelt Lady Raiders played their last volleyball game of the year Oct. 25, narrowly losing at home to the Soap Lake Lady Eagles.

After losing the first set, the Lady Raiders regained momentum by winning the second and third, but they were unable to close, losing the fourth set and tie-breaking fifth to the Lady Eagles.

"It was a disappointing loss for the team," said Lady Raider Head Coach Kasey Garvin. "We missed a lot of opportunities to finish the game. I really believed we were going to carry our two-set win momentum to finish in the fourth set. Soap Lake tipped a lot and we just couldn't cover the middle of the floor efficiently. Our stats prove to the contrary, having dug 61 balls in five sets and finishing it off at 80 percent for the evening."

The team's win-loss record concludes at 3-5 in league play and 6-10 overall, just shy of making the playoffs.

"I am proud of the girls for the leaps they made this season," their coach said. "We had a very young team with very little varsity experience. Seniors Aiyanna Picard and Kourtney Harrington will be greatly missed."
