The Eureka Loggers celebrated their “Pink Out” night with a straight sets win over Fortuna in volleyball at the new Jay Willard Gymnasium on Tuesday.

In honor of breast cancer awareness month, the Loggers used the occasion to fundraise for the California Cancer Crushers, hosting a bake sale.

The Eureka girls also recognized the officials before the game and presented them with small gift baskets.

When the match got under way, the Eureka girls took care of business with a 25-21, 25-18, 25-15 win and improved to 3-3 in the Big 5.

One senior and two freshmen led the way.

Senior captain Isis Poteet, who has been a consistent bright spot for the Loggers all season long, continued to make a positive impact and finished with 11 kills, four blocks and three aces.

“Isis led the way with a strong all-around performance,” head coach Stephanie Napoleon said. 

Freshman Alena Battle and Tiarah Maualuga each also had a good night with five kills and a block apiece.

Maualuga also had four aces to cap a good all-around performance.

Samara Gaither added five acess, three kills and a block in the win, while senior co-captain Anisha Mae Rechelluul dished out 16 assists.

“It was nice to get the win at home on our Pink Out night,” Napoleon said. 

The Loggers will travel to Crescent City to play league leaders Del Norte on Thursday.
