BAKER CITY, Ore. - Days after earning their first Greater Oregon League victory, the Mac-Hi Pioneers fell in three sets to Baker, 25-11, 25-12 and 25-20.
"It was rough," Mac-Hi coach Kaila Rodighiero said. "It wasn't the team that played on Saturday (at Ontario). We didn't seem as focused or as intense, so I changed the lineup a lot in the third game and we came a lot closer.
"They just weren't disciplined," she said.
Rodighiero said the changes involved both who played and where people played and that practice would determine if the changes would stick.
Hayley Freske led the way for the Pioneers with two kills and two blocks while going 8-for-9 in service. Mackenzie Fite was 8-for-8 from the back stripe and Megan Reed had two kills.
The Pioneers fell to 1-6 in the GOL with the loss and will face Ontario Saturday at 2 p.m.
