Vale vs Rainier: Rainier wins in a 5 set battle. Game re-cap to follow this evening. Scores: 25-17, 21-25, 2-25, (no that's not a typing error) 27-25, 12-15. Game 1 was all Vale with freshman Amy DeLong blocking everything Rainier hit at them and sophomore Jocelyn Noland finding Rainier's hardwood. Game 2, Rainier came out much more alert and senior OH, Raeanne Hanks began her hitting clinic. Nice dumps and digs from senior Mollee Schwegler, Rainier wins game 2. Game 3, Vale checked out for 21 straight serves by Rainier, I think they were in the twilight zone. Rainier wins game 3, 25-2. Follow link for Creswell-Sheridan, Burns-Valley Catholic, and Cascade Christian-Santiam Christian results.
Coach MaryAnn Standage must have given her Viking ladies a great pep talk, no more twilight zone, welcome back Vale. Browen with some good kills, assisted by setter, Daishel Clark. The lead has changed 6 times in the final 7 points of the match. Vale and Rainier trade point for point in this nail biter game 4, 27-25 Vale. Game 5 begins with Raeanne Hanks dominating at the net. She has springs and power, her sister and setter Cassie Hanks does a nice job of getting her the ball, where ever she may be! Vale's libero Janessa Cooper has keyed in on Hanks and she's picking up some powerful kill attempts from Hanks by covering line and crosscourt she's all over the backcourt! Teams trade points and kills but Hanks is too much for Vale. Rainier takes this game and match, 15-12.
Creswell vs Sheridan: Another big battle with Sheridan eeking out the win. 22-25, 28-26, 14-25, 24-26. Creswell came out firing on all cylinders and I don't think Sheridan was expecting to battle this tough of an opponent so early in the tournament. I've also gotta add, Creswell surprised the heck out of me as well. Junior OH, Chelsie Joyce and sophomore MH, 6'1 Chandler Gabrio put on a hiting show that was nothing short of spectacular! A dazed Sheridan couldn't find their groove and lost game 1, 22-25. Game 2 started out the same way until senior Bethany Dickey and junior Amber Moser finally kicked into high gear. Game 2's score changed back and forth between the teams about 9 times before ending 28-26 Sheridan. Creswel's senior DS, Kenna Magathan did everything, shy of sprouting wings, to got to the majority of Dickey's powerful hits. Sheridan squeaks by game 2. Game 3 was all Sheridan with Emma Buchholz and Kelsi Vandewettering adding to Sheridan's arsenal of hitters. Game 4 was fantastic by both teams. Very impressive show of hitting. Power, power, power!! Gabrio will be back for another 2 seasons, she exhibits power beyond her young age, between her, Chelsie Joyce, Bethany Dickey and Amber Moser, 3A hitting doesn't get any better. Sheridan takes game 4 but, by no means, was it easy for the 3rd ranked Sheridan Spartans. Final score 26-24. Sheridan will face Rainier this evening at 6:30. Creswell and Vale will play at 8:00am tomorrow morning.
4th ranked Cascade Christian beats 2nd ranked Santiam Christian in 4. 25-15, 18-25, 25-20 and 27-25. Santiam Christian started out very similar to Burns, who was playing on court 1. Sluggish, passing was off, hits were going wide and serves were not going in. After a slow start in game 2, SC comes back to take game 2. Emily and Becca Sellers were stellar for the Cascade Christian Challengers. SC's junior OH, Tayla Woods starts finding CC's hardwood with thunderous hits. She jumps very well and is hitting over the top of CC's blockers. CC's Rachel Buck gets 2 kills along with Emily Sellers wracking up the stuff blocks for CC. SC's Kiersten Hendrix has some stellar play and knocks down a few points. CC's Amanda Beers, senior MB is all over Tayla Woods' hits, CC wins game 3, 25-20. Game 4, my oh my what a nail biter! Lead changes 12 times with both teams trading kills, blocks and ace serves. Becca Sellers, Amanda Beers, Emily Sellers, Rachel Buck, Tayla Woods, Anna Wruck display some fantastic hitting while backrow players for each team, Courtney Towery and Hannah Brewster show us the value of libero's! SC goes down fighting and Cascade Christian comes out winners. 27-25 final. CC will play Valley Catholic at 6:30pm this evening. Winner of that match will play for the State Championship tomorrow evening at 6:00pm. Santiam Christian will play Burns tomorrow morning at 8:00, winner of that match will play for 4th place (Consolation Trophey).
Valley Catholic vs Burns: Burns' hopes of a threepeat are dashed. Valley Catholic beat the Hilander Ladies in 4 games. 25-15, 25-23,22-25 and 25-20. Recap to follow.
