Lady Goats go 1-1 in league play, beating Omak in 3 sets
by Richard Uhlhorn
It was game three that almost got the Lady Goats. They handily won game one and two 25-14, 25-17 with only a few bumps along the road, but game three was a tough one. “They (Omak) are a scrappy team,” said Coach Donene Hendricks. “It is typical of Omak to fight. They were matching us point for point in game three. I think a lot of it was their fan base that got them going.”
It looked like Chelan was going to easily win game three and forged a 11-5 lead before Omak’s coach Brittney Richter called a timeout. Omak came back to the court with a renewed vigor and kept the ball in play until they worked back to a two point deficit, 13-15.
The Lady Pioneers continued to play good volleyball and tied the game at 18-all. Chelan retained the lead until an excited Omak team tied the game again at 21 and then at 22-all before Chelan finished them off 25-22 to take the three game set. Hendricks called a timeout when Omak tied the game late. “I told my players to just relax,” she said.
The win put Chelan’s record at 1-1. Only one team out of the decimated Caribou Trail League will move on to post play “It’s a shame really when you look at the quality teams in the CTL and how hard the girls work.”

The team had another great day of volleyball playing some very good teams. The Ladies played the majority of the day without Senior setter, Johanna Fuller, who was taking the SAT exam. In her absence Sophmore, Madi Harrison did an excellent job of running the offense.
