Jefferson Flies Past Franklin

Allan Classen | January 16,2016

Jefferson dispatched a possible rival to the PIL crown Jan. 15 with a convincing 72-42 drubbing of Franklin. Franklin had swept its first three league games, but a 71-53 loss at Wilson Jan. 14 and the defeat at Jefferson suggest the Quakers still aren’t ready for the top rung.   Franklin appeared poised to rise...

Dragons Overcome Obstacles To Make Good Start

Allan Classen | December 22,2015

  The Dallas Dragons finished the first five games of the 2015-16 schedule with their heads (and winning percentage) above water, a better result than might have been expected.   Dallas graduated four starters—and virtually all of its height—from a 13-12 team. Coach Trent Schwartz could call on two 6-6 starters and another...

2A Volleyball Previews

Of the 16 schools at the 2005 OSAA 2A volleyball finals site, only six remain in 2A following reclassification. Which of those six are expected to return this November? And what schools are favored to join them? Find out inside . . .

Part I - Northwest League 
The NWL lost to reclassification some recent playoff teams in Warrenton, Clatskanie and Neah-Kah-Nie, while gaining Nestucca, Faith Bible and Gaston from the old West Valley League. It doesn’t matter. The top two NWL volleyball programs have been and continue to be Portland Christian and Corbett. Look for those two schools at Pacific University in November. The next question is which two schools fill out the league’s four OSAA playoff spots? 

 

1. PORTLAND CHRISTIAN – The Royals won their third straight NWL title last year, going 10-0 in league matches and 30-1 in league games. Like Corbett and N-K-N, the Royals graduated only one senior (Rachel McCain – NWL 1st Team). Otherwise, everyone is back, including junior Kim Hill. With OES’ Libby Morrison now playing in 3A, PC’s Hill will be the 2A POY this year and next. Hill already is the most heavily recruited D-1 player in 2A since Santiam Christian’s Alesha Deesing (now at UW). Look for the Royals to improve on last year’s 6th place trophy in November.

 

2. CORBETT – Like PC (and N-K-N), the Cardinals (8-2 NWL) lost only one senior (Stacy Grey – NWL 2nd team), but return 1st team setter Heather Anderson and the Spanjer twins. Perhaps more importantly, the Cardinals are led by Sue Busk, one of 2A’s most successful coaches, especially when she smells playoffs. Expect to see Corbett at PacU in November.

 

3. DE LA SALLE – The Knights (6-4 NWL) have come ever so close each year of their young existence, but manage to fall short in league playoffs. This year may be more of the same. But in a weaker NWL, look for coach Dennis Carline and senior daughter Daedra (2nd Team NWL) to make at least the 1st round of the OSAA playoffs.

 

4. NESTUCCA – Last year, the top three teams in the WVL (and OSAA finals) were OES, Willamina, and Santiam Christian. Fourth in the WVL was Nestucca, which finished 7-4, with all four losses to the top three teams. Of the new faces in the NWL, the Bobcats appear to be the most capable of landing with a splash and capturing one of the leagues 4 playoff spots.

 

THE REST OF THE PACK –

KNAPPA (8-2 NWL) returns all-league setter Meagan Harn, as well as the COY’s in her parents Bob and Barbara Harn. But the Loggers, better known for girls’ basketball, graduated three seniors with all-league honors. The Harns’ cannot and will not do it alone.

 

Neither PORTLAND LUTHERAN (3-7 NWL), FAITH BIBLE (3-8 WVL) or GASTON (1-9 WVL) will cause much trouble.
