After placing second at the Wenatchee Invitational Volleyball Tournament, Chelan’s Lady Goats have a bye on Tuesday which gives time until Thursday to prepare their match against the unbeaten Cascade Kodiaks.

 

This match is the highlight of the regular schedule. Cascade and Chelan have been the strongest two volleyball teams in the North Central Washington’s 1A classification for a number of years and both teams had losing to each other.

 

Thursday night’s game which will be hosted in Chelan is for the first place spot in the Caribou Trail League. If you haven’t attended a volleyball match, this is definitely the match to watch. “We would love to have our community come support us as we play. JV and C will start at 5:00 with the varsity following at 6:30,” said Coach Donene Hendricks.

 

Wenatchee Invite:

 

The prestigious Wenatchee Invitational took place last Saturday with 16 highly accomplised teams competing for the championshiop. “We are excited to report that we placed second overall,” reported Hendricks.

This put Chelan into the Championship Bracket which was the best of 2 out of 3 games. The Lady Goats defeated Oak Harbor 25-14, 25-19 to get into the semi-final match against La Conner who they beat 25-12, 25-20.

 

In the Championship match the Lady Goats played hard, but lost to 4A Bellarmine Prep 16-25, 19-25. “It was a great day of volleyball,” reported Hendricks.
