Hoquiam upended Raymond-South Bend in a non-league matchup of two Twin Harbors prep volleyball teams as we review Monday’s local sports action.
Hoquiam 3, Raymond-South Bend 0
Hoquiam earned a straight-set victory over Raymond-South Bend on Monday at South Bend High School.
The Grizzlies (3-3 overall) played an up-tempo style and exposed Ravens weaknesses in the 25-15, 25-16 and 25-19 victory.
“Very proud of how my whole team played,” Hoquiam head coach Heather Bozich said. “We played with so much energy and communicated throughout the entire match.”
Hoquiam was led by junior setter Katlyn Brodhead (12 digs, 28 assists) and senior outside hitter Faith Prosch (11 digs, 11 kills), each of whom recorded double-doubles in the game.
Raymond-South Bend (3-2) struggled against a Hoquiam team that executed its game plan.
“We spent a considerable amount of time on serve-receive and that kept us out of rhythm all night long,” RSB head coach Julie Jewell said. “We struggled to make adjustments and we had a hard time getting anything going offensively. Hoquiam served well and found our weakness defensively.”
RSB was led by Ava Baugher (7 kills), Kassie Koski (9 blocks) and Kyndal Koski (25 digs).
The Ravens played at Chief Leschi at 7 p.m. Tuesday after The Daily World’s press time.

BOYS PREP GOLF
Aberdeen 244, Shelton 253
Aberdeen played on a tough course for the second straight day and earned a 244-253 win over Shelton on Thursday at the Alderbrook Golf Club in Union.
Baylor Ainsworth, Charlie Ancich and Hunter Eisele each shot sub-50 rounds to lead the Bobcats on a course that punished golfers that couldn’t keep the ball inbounds.
“With no bail out options, these courses tend to mess with the mental side of golf,” Aberdeen head coach Dan Sundstrom said, adding that Alderbrook and the course against W.F. West the previous day were dotted with out-of-play areas. “With that in mind, we were very happy our team score went down 10 strokes from the day before. Baylor rallied after a rough first hole and picked up the Bobcat honors.”
Aberdeen junior varsity golfer Mylan Bruner shot a 52 and birdied the par-3 sixth hole.
Aberdeen (244) – Baylor Ainsworth 42, Charlie Ancich 47, Hunter Eisele 48, Trevon Ramos 55, Skyler Dawson (57 tie), Spencer Hill (57 tie).
Shelton (253) – Austin Covert 41, Carson Harmon 48, Bjorn Jacot 51, Zane Scott 56, Ty Antis 57.
GIRLS PREP SOCCER
Elma 1, River Ridge 0
A goal by Beta Valentine was all Elma would need in a 1-0 victory over 3A River Ridge in a non-league contest on Monday in Elma.
The Eagles (5-1) got on the board with what turned out to be the game’s only goal approximately 15 minutes into the game. Valentine bent a corner kick into the River Ridge 18-yard box. The ball eventually found the foot of Elma midfielder Miley Seaberg, who fed the ball to Valentine for the goal.
Elma missed on chances to increase its lead, including a breakaway attempt sent just wide of the post.
“Soccer is a funny sport,” Elma head coach Evan Valentine said. “Sometimes you miss the chances you make, and make the chances you miss.”
Elma was without senior co-captain in midfielder Eliza Sibbett, who was absent due to family concerns.
Senior midfielder Macy Adams filled in for Sibbett, moving from her usual winger position to the back of the midfield.
“She’s a versatile player,” Coach Valentine said of Adams. “She went wherever needed for the team.”
Elma plays at Napavine at 7 p.m. on Thursday.
River Ridge 0 0 – 0
Elma 1 0 – 1
