Lady Goats run a perfect season and end it 14-0

The Tonasket Tigers came to town on Tuesday evening for the Goats last league match before heading off to the District Championships this coming Saturday in Leavenworth.
Chelan finished its regular CTL season with another win 25-14, 25-13, 25-14, losing zero matches all season.
This match was relatively boring to watch. Tonasket can put the ball in play, and they did, but the Tigers just didn’t have the gas to keep the Goats at bay. Izzy Barth slammed 12 kills to the floor and Katie McQuaid added another 10 kills to cap the game for the Goats. Other outstanding performances were put in by Sydney Austin, freshman standout, Jaicee Harris, Darby Jenkins, Amanda VanDiest, Jamie Brunner and Kelly Bowers. Alisha Love started the game, but still has a very tender ankle and sat on the bench most of the night
Serving was a sore spot for the Goats. Usually, Chelan is way up in the 90 percentile from the service line, but tonight they missed nine. “The girls know they can’t do that,” stated Coach Donene Hendricks. “It’s not good to miss that many serves.”
“We had some long shots tonight, but out passing was good,” said Hendricks.
District play begins at CascadeHigh School in Leavenworth on Saturday morning, but Chelan gets a first round bye. “We will probably take the court around ,” she said.
Chelan will have to stay geared up to win District’s. Cascade is quite capable of giving Chelan a run for their money and with the home court advantage; the Kodiaks are coming to play. However, Chelan has been the only team to beat them this year and has done it twice.
