Best Volleyball Match-up of the year
Chelan v Cascade

Jamie Brunner had eight kills to lead the team and was 13/13 at the service line with three aces and five digs on the evening. Jaicee Harris was 20/22 at the service line with six aces, seven kills and three blocks. Darby Jenkins added another six kills to here game and provided two blocks with Sydney Austin slamming another six kills, digging out six and serving 10/11 with three aces. Houston Robison also provided six kills on the evening and three blocks.
AnnAlise Nelson had five digs and passed 8/8 on serve receive with 8/9 serving. Cari Williams had one kill and one dig. Kaylee Robelia was 2/2/ at the service line with one dig.
Statistically, the Tonasket match showed a balanced attack on Tonasket, which is what the Lady Goats are going to need this coming Tuesday night if they expect to get past the Cascade Kodiaks.
The Kodiaks beat the Goats in their first outing in Leavenworth this year, which is only the second time in 15 matches the Kodiaks have been able to do that.
Tuesday night will be a crucial night for the Lady Goats and they will need to step-up to the challenge that will come from a very talented Cascade team. One thing that would help the Goats get fired up would be a large crowd on hand to cheer them on. Tuesday night will be the best volleyball you will see in the Caribou Trail League this year.
