The Anderson Cubs may have been sky-high after their win over U-Prep (0-2, 14-3) on Tuesday. But when all was said and done at Miner Gym on Thursday, Yreka (2-0, 19-8) had crushed the Cubs 3-0.

The Miners easily handled Anderson in the first set, 25-16. The Cubs put up a bit of a fight in set-two, but Yreka ultimately took control, winning 25-19. The third set was just a matter of Yreka reaching the required 25 points for a victory. The only question was how few points Anderson would record. As it turned out, the answer was eight.

Hailey Conner notched five kills, three blocks and 14 digs for Yreka. Ashely Cox also had five kills, as well as 26 digs. Neina Hatch dealt three aces, came up with 14 digs, and had nine assists. Madeline Eastman recorded 21 helpers and seven digs. Trinity Apodaca registered a trio of blocks and a pair of kills.

Yreka hosts U-Prep next Tuesday.
