On the volleyball front this morning…..

Good Wednesday morning. We start our package of items this morning talking volleyball.

First, Cedarcrest High School’s volleyball ladies posted a four-set home win last night in Cascade Conference action in Duvall over the Granite Falls Tigers. Makenna Wehmeyer had 16 kills and five aces to lead the Red Wolves to the 25-16, 25-19, 18-25, 25-19 triumph that moves them into a tie for second among the 2A schools in the conference (2-4 league, 3-4 overall) with Lakewood. Kami Leslie pitched in 37 assists and six digs to aid CHS, while McKenzie Craig added 13 digs and three aces to the efforts for the home side.

Emily Hodges had 14 kills, a block and five digs to pace GF, while Hayley Hansen added 12 kills and a block for the Tigers.

Taeler Gerde added nine kills and two aces to help Cedarcrest, and Granite Falls was also aided by Sis Haviland’s 12 digs. CHS is at Archbishop Murphy tomorrow looking to gain ground on the Wildcats, who hold the 2A Cascade top spot at the moment. First serve is at 7:00 p.m. up at AMHS in Mill Creek.

Now to last night’s college scoreboard. A note and that is MSHS grad Lindsay Carr did not see action last night for Loyola Marymount University’s team as they fell in four sets on the road to BYU in a nationally-televised contest. The rest of the action:

Santa Clara def. St. Mary’s 26-24, 25-10, 25-19: SC moved to 2-1 in WCC play with the road win over the Gaels in Moraga, CA. Freshman Anna McCreadie, from North Bend and a 2015 Mount Si HS grad, had eight kills, three digs and four blocks to aid the Broncos, now 11-4 overall on the season.

Winthrop (SC) def. UNC Charlotte 25-23, 25-23, 27-25: Winthrop, of the Big South Conference, held off the visiting 49’ers of Conference USA in a non-conference battle last night in Rock Hill, SC, involving two local rivals from the Charlotte area. Senior Sarah McDonald, from Snoqualmie and a 2012 Mount Si HS alum, had six kills and six digs for UNCC, now 5-9 this season.
