Pomeroy splits Clarkston volleyball jamboree


CLARKSTON, Wash. — Pomeroy’s volleyball team went 3-3 at the Clarkston Jamboree Tuesday in its first action of the season.

The games did not count toward the Pirates’ record.

Pomeroy split games with Asotin (22-25, 25-4), Clarkston (25-15, 21-25) and Dayton (25-15, 26-28).

“We had some good moments and then some moments that weren’t as good,” Pomeroy coach Bruce Crossfield said. “It’s a nice way to do it (open the season), because you’ve got all the little things to work out in the first game. It was nice because we’ll play Asotin and Dayton again, but they’re not in our league.

“Nobody was in jeopardy of giving anything away that they’ll use later,” Crossfield said.

The Pirates were originally scheduled to host Dayton Tuesday, but that match was rescheduled for Oct. 25, so that the teams could compete in the jamboree.

Pomeroy next faces Asotin Thursday at 6 p.m.

The Pirates will also host the third annual Border Battle, a tournament consisting of five teams from Washington and five from Idaho, on Sept. 22.

The tournament was held in Clarkston last year while Pomeroy High School was being renovated.

The Border Battle consists of each team playing all five teams from the opposing state three times for a total of 15 games played per team. The state with the best record is declared the winner, with all players from that state receiving T-shirts.
