Clara Osborne racked up 17 kills and 16 digs to help unbeaten Genesee earn a 25-22, 25-22, 23-25, 25-12 Whitepine League Division I road win Thursday against Logos of Moscow to stay unbeaten in six matches so far.

The first three sets were tight before the Bulldogs (6-0, 5-0) asserted themselves in the fourth.

“It was the second time we played Logos, and it was the same result,” Genesee coach Pete Crowley said. “They got a lot better and it was the same result, so we got a lot better. I was impressed with Logos’ blocking ability. ... We came back (in the fourth) and we really took that one over. I was kind of glad we actually got to play that one.”

Genesee’s Lucie Ranisate joined Osborne in double digits with 13 kills and added five blocks, while teammate Isabelle Monk served five aces.

For Logos (3-3), Hero Merkle made seven kills and 12 digs, Olivia Igielski managed four kills and three blocks, and Lily Leidenfrost had three blocks and 10 digs.

Bears drop opener

In the first interscholastic event since having their fall season reinstated by a school board vote, Moscow fell 25-23, 25-20, 25-21 to visiting 4A Inland Empire League foe Lakeland in three tight sets at Bear Den.

Leaders for the Bears included Morgan Claus (nine kills, eight digs), Sami Unger (16 assists, eight digs) and Makayla Gilkey (five aces).

“Lakeland (had) already played quite a bit,” Moscow coach Toni Claus said. “We didn’t do too bad. We served really tough at them — that’s what kept us in the game. We’re just going to have to regroup, and I’ll have to go look at the game still and then reevaluate.”

Vandal punter works out for Patriots

Former All-American Idaho punter Austin Rehkow worked out for the New England Patriots on Thursday, according to NFL reporter Aaron Wilson.

It was the Central Valley (Spokane) graduate’s second session with the Patriots in the past year. Rehkow exercised for the six-time Super Bowl champions on Oct. 15, 2019, then was scooped up by the Houston Roughnecks in the second round of the XFL draft a day later.

Rehkow played five games for Houston before the league shut its doors — and later shuttered — because of the coronavirus pandemic. A year earlier, he assumed punting duties for the Salt Lake Stallions of the upstart Alliance of American Football, which folded before its inaugural regular season ended.

Rehkow broke records as a kicker and punter during his time at UI from 2013-16, but several online reports indicate New England is looking at him for punts.

The 2017 undrafted free agent spent time with the Buffalo Bills and New York Giants, but didn’t play, before heading to the AAF.
