“We played a lot better tonight,” Dorris said. “Rochester was first-game jitters, I think. Today we were ready to play.
“We had all last week off so we just practiced really hard.”
As for the keys to the match, Dorris said, “Just staying positive and not getting down and just keeping our serves in and our serve receive, for sure.”

“I thought Pioneer did a really good job of getting us out of system, especially in game one and closing out game two,” Logan coach Jon Vernon said. “Rod did a good job of getting his girls ready to play. We weren’t ready to play tonight. We weren’t ready to play from the very beginning.
“They run the triangle offense and they got us with a lot of tips. It’s hard to cover when you haven’t seen them play. I had Parent’s Night the night they played.
“The third game we came back and did some good things and played better defense on the tips. We came up short in the fourth game and that’s a credit to Rod.”
The Berries certainly expect to be top contenders for their Class 4A sectional title and with the win, the Panthers are certainly looking to be a top contender in Class A again this season.
