Senior Jaicee Harris has helped lead the Lady Goats to the CTL Championships. She recently accepted an offer from Washington State University to play volleyball for the Cougars after deciding that Boston College was too far away from home.
Lady Goats end regular season play undefeated in volleyball
By Richard Uhlhorn
Chelan’s Lady Goats finished its regular season undefeated when they beat Omak in a three game set, 25-11, 25-6, 25-6. “It is exciting to announce that for the first time since I can remember, all three Chelan teams (C, JV & Varsity) went undefeated in league play,” reported Coach Donene Hendricks. “We are so proud of the hard work that our players have put forth. This is a great accomplishment.”
Jaicee Harris (just committed to WSU to play volleyball) and junior Darcy Austin combined for 21 kills to help lift the Goats in their final game of the season. Olivia Plew had 16 assists and was 22/23 at the service line. Abby Phelps had 11 assists, 4 blocks and 3 kills.
The Lady Goats travel to Freeman for its Regional Tournament beginning on Saturday, November 6 where they will play the winner of the Newport v Okanogan/Cashmere match at 4 p.m. (Okanogan and Cashmere play Tuesday to decide the third seed to the Regional tournament from the CTL).
The winner of Chelan’s match will advance to the championship match to play for first or second seeding to the State Tournament. The loser of Chelan’s match will play a consolation match for the third and final seed to the State Tournament.
