Tuesday Prep Roundup: Monte volleyball trounces Centralia


Bulldogs sweep Tigers

CENTRALIA — When Montesano’s offense is clicking, it is tough for other teams to keep up. Tuesday night’s non-league match at Centralia was proof of that, with the Bulldogs keeping the hosts on defense en route to a 25-19, 25-16, 25-20 victory.

Shayla Floch slugged 15 kills and Jordan Spradlin added 10 kills and three solo blocks for the Bulldogs (5-0). Hannah Hatcher dished out 26 assists and Josie Talley had eight digs and Josie Toyra seven digs.

“(Centralia) has some hitters, but I felt like we controlled the match,” Montesano head coach Debbie Gibson said. “We passed the ball really well. When we are passing well, there are a lot of players we can go to. They were playing a lot of defense tonight. We had a chance to run our offense and they had trouble defending it. We really had to work for it, so I’m happy with the way the kids responded to playing at a higher level.”

Toyra and Hannah Manley were also cited for 100 percent serving.

Montesano won the junior varsity 25-21, 25-18 and Centralia won the C Squad match 25-14, 25-22.

On Thursday, Montesano hosts Seton Catholic.

Grizzlies fall in three

Castle Rock had the better of long rallies in topping Hoquiam, 25-11, 25-7, 25-10, in a non-league contest Tuesday at Hoquiam Square Garden.

The Grizzlies (2-4) were more competitive than the scores indicated, but the Rockets won the vast majority of extended points.

“We didn’t play poorly (but) we’re still not mentally tough,” HHS coach Heather Bozich said. “When it came to long points, they came out on top, because they know how to finish and we didn’t.”

Ashley Paladin had 17 digs and Kacie Pelan nine assists for the Grizzlies. Mercedes Pinnell was cited for net play.

Castle Rock also won the JV match, 25-12, 25-16.

Hoquiam entertains Centralia on Thursday.

Gulls sweep Tribe

RAYMOND — Raymond kept its winning momentum going against rival South Bend, claiming this non-league match in three, 25-16, 25-10, 25-14 on Tuesday night.

Aubree Gardner brought up 27 digs, put down three kills and served three aces to lead the Gulls (4-1). Kendra Dunsmore had nine digs and three blocks and Maddie Murray had four kills and eight digs. Makenna Williams was cited for her offense.

“We did pretty well; we just didn’t have a lot of energy, but a win is a win,” Raymond head coach Bob Swogger said.

“We are still struggling at the service line and we’re trying to make improvements there,” South Bend head coach Jackie Sanchez said. “We held our composure very well tonight. We played better than what we have been playing so far.”

Hannah Byington was cited with 100 percent serving on 11 attempts, with Jessica Sanchez knocking down eight kills and nine blocks. Karley Reidinger added 10 digs and four blocks and Joshlynne Johnson was cited for her serve-receive work.

South Bend won the junior varsity match in three and Raymond won the C Squad match in two.

On Thursday, Raymond travels to Ocosta and South Bend (1-3) hosts Willapa Valley.

Wildcats win in four

MENLO — Ocosta used near pinpoint service to grab control early and finish off Willapa Valley 3-1 (25-18, 25-14, 22-25, 25-16) in a non-league match on Tuesday.

The Wildcats (4-0) jumped ahead early when junior Erika Snider collected a handful of her total 12 aces to help Ocosta grab a 7-0 lead. Snider missed just one of her 28 serves throughout the match.

Valley (2-2) rallied to take the third set before the Wildcats regrouped to close out the match. Along with Snider, Ocosta was led by Kaylee Barnum, who had 19 kills, four blocks and 12 digs, Evalyn Marsh, who had 17 digs, and Alivia Marsh, who had three blocks and three kills.

“We played really well,” Ocosta coach Barbara Rasmus said. “The first game, We were really up and excited. The third game, we just lost the momentum and then we came back the fourth game and played well. We served great.”

“We started off the night really slow and dug ourselves a hole,” Valley coach Lori Snodgrass said. “We picked up momentum at the end of the second game and that helped us out. Ocosta has a couple good servers and we seemed to just get stuck in a couple serve-receive rotations.”

Valley was led by libero Brooke Friese, who finished with eight digs, and Grace Hodel had seven kills and two blocks for the Vikings. Snodgrass cited the net play of Raina Jones.

Both teams will be back in action on Thursday with Ocosta hosting Raymond and Valley traveling to South Bend.

Hyaks in three

OYEHUT — North Beach’s front line allowed it to take full control of this non-league match 26-24, 25-18, 25-18 over Winlock on Tuesday afternoon.

Malia Atkins, Helen Garman and Lorin Cox were cited for their blocking and net play, which was key for the Hyaks to get their first win of the season.

“The girls were more mentally tough in this match,” North Beach head coach Jessica Preisinger said. “We played with more chemistry. We changed the offense and the girls are getting use to the new rotations, but they are clicking with it.”

On Thursday, North Beach (1-3) travels to Taholah.


Grizzlies 151, Eagles 230

At Highland Golf Course, Hoquiam had three golfers crack 40 after a weather delay lengthened the Evergreen 1A League match with Elma on Tuesday afternoon.

The Grizzlies’ John Sand earned medalist honors with a 34, with teammates Ryan Cole (37) and Josh Burgher (39) all finishing with sub-40 scores.

The match was suspended for 40 minutes for a weather delay, which resulted in the cancellation of the junior varsity matches. The varsity golfers returned to the course and finished play without incident.

“The kids are playing steady,” HHS head coach Larry Dublanko said. “When the varsity went back out, sometimes it is tough getting back into the groove. We never really had a ton of rain. Today was a good chance to challenge ourselves after the delay.”

Elma’s Trace Thompson led his group with a 51.

On Thursday, Hoquiam hosts a tri-meet with LaCenter and Montesano and Elma hosts Seton Catholic.

Hoquiam (151) — John Sand 34, Parker McCormick 46, Ryan Cole 37, Tate Witherby 48, Josh Burgher 39, Braden Dayton 41.

Elma (230) — Trace Thompson 51, Killian Acuff 65, Barrett Barbidge 57, Cody Williams 57, Bastion Marseille 68, Russ Hensley 67.


Harriers At The Beach

OYEHUT — Ocosta’s boys put in a team performance, led by their No. 3 runner, to edge out Forks for the boys title at the Harriers At The Beach cross country meet on Tuesday afternoon.

The Wildcats, led by a fourth-place finish by Sam Quinby, won 36-38 over Forks. Hoquiam’s boys took third at 48. Hoquiam had the only complete girls team at the meet.

Ocosta’s Kathryn Anderson, who was feeling ill, according to head coach Aaron Anderson, won the girls race.

“She ran a great race, even though she wasn’t feeling well,” Anderson said. “My No. 3 runner became my No. 1 runner. Sam had a breakout race today.”
