Against Spring Creek (2-8 league), senior Anais Fay led the Wolverines with 13 kills, two service aces, seven digs and a block. Katie Fisher finished with nine kills and nine digs, Maia Dvoracek had seven kills, eight digs and five assists, Maddie Haley had six kills and three aces, and Tatum Kula had two blocks. Jordan Brown contributed 13 assists.

Dvoracek slammed 14 kills while tallying five aces and 20 assists against Elko (3-9). Fay posted six kills and nine digs, Haley had five kills and two blocks, Kula had four kills, and Maddie Bromley had three kills and two aces. Brown added 11 assists.

Truckee has four matches remaining over the final two weeks of league play, starting with a road match against Fernley (2-8) on Wednesday before hosting third-place Dayton (9-3) on Friday at 6 p.m.

The Wolverines will host the Northern Division I-A regional championship tournament on Nov. 6-7. The top six teams qualify for the tournament.
