Word has it that Chelan was on cruise control last night, Thursday, Oct. 6, in Omak. Dave Willoughby, director of photography for the NCW and CTL Athletic websites and the owner of these websites, Mark Martin, are making a swing through the CTL this week and just happened to catch the Lady Goats destroy Omak’s Lady Pioneers 25-6, 25-8, 25-9.
“Chelan just blew them away,” said Willoughby. “I had a chance to watch Chelan in last year’s title match and they still look as good.”
“We had outstanding play from the entire team both offensively and defensively,” reported Coach Donene Hendricks. “As a team we combined for 42 kills and served up 66 / 70 with 12 aces. This puts our league record at 5-0.

Chelan v Cascade at Leavenworth
Scores of the Varsity were 25-22, 25-17, 25-23.
