The St. John/Endicott/LaCrosse volleyball team has begun a new year with first-year head coach Jenn Johnson, who began as an assistant when her seniors were freshmen.

“I'm loving it but extremely sad about it,” said Johnson. “It's a great group of girls.”

The team began with the jamboree in Colfax over Labor Day weekend followed by a home loss to Pomeroy and a non-league win over Davenport.

Against Pomeroy, the Eagles went down 11-25, 20-25, 21-25.

“Now we know what we need to work on,” said Johnson.

Senior Autumn Meyers led S.J.E.L. with five kills and three aces in the loss while Riley Lamb, also a senior, had seven blocks and Alynn Harder got nine digs. Glory Dickerson marked 10 assists. Harder and Dickerson are seniors as well.

At Davenport Sept. 8, S.J.E.L. won 26-23, 25-18, 21-25 and 26-24.

Dickerson delivered six aces with 25 assists, freshman Ashlynn Archer had 14 kills and seven blocks and Meyers got 11 digs. The Eagles were missing four girls who were at Palouse Empire Fair showing animals.

The 2018 St. John/Endicott/LaCrosse team will look to build on last year's fifth-place finish in the Southeast 1B league. Coach Megan Dorman moved to the junior high program after 11 years as varsity coach.

Coach Johnson played her high school volleyball in Oregon, an outside hitter at 6A Roseburg High School in Roseburg, Ore.
