Lady Goats win South Whidbey Tournament
Editorís note: Everyone supporting Chelanís Lady Goat Volleyball program knows that this yearís group of young ladies are special. Winning the prestigious South Whidbey Tournament is a huge confidence builder because the team is able to play up against some very strong western Washington teams up to the 4A Classification. Below is Coach Donene Hendrickís report on the this yearís trip to the tournament. Richard Uhlhorn
Well we made it back from a great South Whidbey tournament and I am excited to announce that we won the tournament! I am so proud of this group of young ladies. They played very consistently the entire day and were extremely fun to watch.
We opened pool play with Shoreline Christian and won 25-9, 25-8. We then defeated Lynwood 25-22, 25-15. Next we defeated Cascade Christian 25-14, 25-8. Out of the 16 teams competing we came out of pool play as the top seed. From there the top four were bracketed together and we played Nooksack Valley in a semi final match. We won that match 25-9, 25-10. In the championship match we defeated Meadowdale 25-21, 25-23.
