Tuesday news notes….

Play wrapped up yesterday at the Emerald City Classic club volleyball tournament in Seattle, with fairly solid results for all the teams with Valley players competing.

Bellevue-based Sudden Impact 18’s finished 18th in the 18 Open division; the team, with Mount Si High School senior Anna McCreadie, made it all the way to their playoff bracket final before falling to a team from Lake Stevens. All of the other teams we’ve been following this weekend – the SIVBC 15’s Lightning and 16’s, along with the Mercer Island-based Island Thunder 16’s and Woodinville-based Washington Volleyball Academy 17’s – finished 13th in their respective age group divisions after falling in their playoff openers. SIVBC teams included MSHS’ Amanda Harkleroad (15’s), Courteney Carr and Katie McCreadie (16’s), while Island Thunder featured MSHS’ Emily Cole and WVBA included CHS’ Makenna Wehmeyer.

This tournament marked the end of the club season for many of the teams; nationals for those who qualified will be coming up later this summer.
