In their home opener Tuesday, Colfax volleyball players waged another battle with a powerful GSL team and sustained a loss. Gonzaga Prep, pegged to be a top tier team in the Greater Spokane League this year, put the young Bulldogs down in three straight, 25-12, 25-16, and 25-17.

Colfax Coach Molly McNeil rated the Prep squad as a little tougher than Lewis & Clark which edged Colfax in three straight last week for the season opener.

"They were a big team with a lot of experience. I 'm proud of the way our young team played against them," Coach McNeil said.

Colfax improved as the match advanced and Prep Coach Jill Benson began to change up her lineup. In the third game, the Bulldogs kept within five points of until the visitors pulled away at the end of the match.

Coach McNeil credited senior captain Madi Cox with a solid job of setting in a new rotation which was used by the Bulldogs.

Kierstyn York rapped eight kills for Colfax, and Sophie Klaveano hit five. Asher Cai, Kaitlyn Cornish, and Cox each had two kills.

Colfax today will host Liberty for the first league match for both teams.
