Chelanís Lady Goats will enter the WIAA State Volleyball Tournament as the third seed out of its Bi-District Tournament held in Chelan on Saturday, November 5.
Up until the Bi-District Tournament, Chelan went undefeated in league play and also won several prestigious tournaments.
On Saturday, the Lady Goats drew a first round bye and then met up with Freeman and lost this match in three games 19-25, 23-25, 16-25. Freeman jumped out to a 5-0 lead and while Chelan kept the game within two and three points until the final minutes, they were unable to get into the game.
Game two was the closest with both teams leading at several points. Chelan took the lead 10-8 and both teams battled for the win with Freeman finally taking a timeout when the score was 23-24. They came back and won this game by two points.
Freeman took advantage in game three and won going away 25-16. Losing this match put Chelan in a must win or hang-up the volleyball of the season. They played Cascade whom they had already defeated in two different league matches.
Chelan defeated Cascade 25-10, 25-19, 25-21 to take the third seed out of our bi-district and won another trip to the Sun Dome in Yakima where they will defend their state championship from last year.
They face last yearís 2nd place team that they defeated 25-23, 25-20, 25-18 for the State Championship. This will be a tough match. Kings is undefeated this year in league and non-league play. Chelan lost to Kings in 2009 for the championship.
