Brooklyn Rainer recorded 13 of Libby’s 34 kills as the Loggers dominated Polson 25-12, 25-17, 25-17 in a Class A conference matchup.

“Any time you beat a team in three sets, it’s a good win,” Libby coach Cindy Ostrem-Johnston said. “We need to work on staying focused and intense all the way through.”

Libby tallied 53 digs, 17 of which came from Jayden Winslow. Mehki Sykes led the Loggers with six blocks.

Libby will return to action Tuesday at Troy while Polson entertains Hamilton on Thursday.
