The Chelan Lady Goat Volleyball Team continues to dominate the Caribou Trail League. Last Thursday evening in Lake Roosevelt, the Lady Goats extended its league record to 11-0 with a 25-15, 25-14, 25-15 sweep of the Raiders.
“AS a team we had a strong night of serving and aggressive offensive attacks at the net,” reported Coach Donene Hendricks.
Kelli Bowers led the team with 20 assists and served a perfect 11/11 with 2 aces. Izzy Barth had 13 kills, 9 assists and was 12/12 with 1 ace from the service line. Katie McQuaid and Sydney Austin both had 6 kills followed by Jamie Brunner with 5, Jaicee Harris with 4 and Darby Jenkins with 3 kills. Amanda Van Diest was 13/14 on serve receive and led the team with 5 digs on the night.
The JV and C Squads also won their matches.
On Tuesday the team traveled to Okanogan, winning that match 25-19, 25-19, 25-15.
Katie McQuaid was back from her ankle injury, but Kelli Bowers was out sick. Coach Hendricks replaced Bowers with Jamie Brunner who did an outstanding job of setting. Alisha Love was still out with her ankle injury which will keep her off the floor for an undetermined amount of time.
“I can't say enough about how proud I am of this team for their ability to play through adversity,” said Coach Hendricks. “None of them seem phased at changing positions for the night. It is an amazing group in that they truly believe in each other.”
Izzy Barth led in kills with 12 and had 13 assists, 3 blocks 4 digs and served 11/12 with 2 aces. Jamie Brunner had 6 kills, 10 assists, served 15/17 with 2 aces and had 8 digs. Sydney Austin had 9 digs, 6 kills, 3 assists, 1 block and served 7/9 with 1 ace. Katie McQuaid had 1 kill, 4 blocks, 2 digs. Jaicee Harris had 5 kills served 15/15 with 1 ace, and had 2 blocks, Darby Jenkins had 6 kills, 3 blocks, served 6/6 and had 6 digs. Amanda Van Diest led in digs with 11, served 5/5 and served received 20/22.
Chelan’s C-squad lost its match, but the JV was able to avenge its only loss against Okanogan and now have a record of 10-1 overall.
Cascade comes to town on Tuesday, October 16, for its second match against the Goats. So far, the Kodiaks are the only team Chelan has had any difficulty with, so it should be a good match to watch.
