CHELAN – Brewster extended Chelan in a set but in the end the Goats prevailed, 3-0, in a league game on the final day of the regular season.
Chelan, which finished second in the Caribou Trail League, won 25-20, 25-17 and 27-25.
The loss dropped Brewster into a tie with Omak for third- and fourth-place.
A points differential seeds Brewster No. 3 and Omak No. 4.
Brewster coach Marcy Boesel said it did not matter much which team finished third or fourth.
“We would play one another in a loser out district on Tuesday, regardless,” she said. “Each of us will get four nominations for all-league.”
The teams, which split during the regular season, were to begin postseason with a rubber match Tuesday, Nov. 5, at Omak. The loser is out while the winner advances to play Lakeside at 2 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 9, at Cascade High School, 10190 Chumstick Highway, Leavenworth.
In the other loser out Tuesday match, Quincy is at Chelan. The winner plays Newport at 2 p.m. Saturday.
Freeman and Cascade received first-round byes. There are four seeds to state up for grabs.
Against Chelan, Brewster adjusted throughout its match after a slow start, Boesel said.
“There were some great rallies,” she said. “We finished the match stronger than we started and finishing strong is always a goal.”
Brewster stats: Brette Boesel 9 kills, 17 assists, 8 blocks, 10 digs; Markie Miller 12 kills, 5 blocks, 14 digs; Margie Brammer 4 kills, 7 assists, 7 digs; Kendall Leaver 3 kills; Whitney Baker 6/8 hitting, 1 kill, 1 block; Bethany Anderson 14/14 serving; Sally Romo 8 digs; Vanessa Terrones 9/10 serving, 1 ace, 4 digs; Jocelyn Reyes 16 digs, 13/13 serving.
TONASKET – Tonasket stayed close, but could not win a set in falling to Cashmere, 3-0, in the final match Nov. 2 of the regular season in the Caribou Trail League.
Cashmere prevailed 25-16, 27-25 and 25-18.
“My girls fought hard but came up short,” Tonasket coach Jackie Gliddon said. “Although we lost this season, my girls competed in most matches. We were just unable to finish with a win. I want to wish the other teams the best of luck in postseason play. It’s been real.”
Alissa Young led the Tiger attack with 9-for-9 serving, 4 kills and a block.
“She hustled around today and got to the ball,” Gliddon said.
Tonasket stats: Alissa Young 9-9 serving, 4 kills, 1 block; Cassie Spear 12-14 serving, 5 aces, 1 kill; Savannah Clinedinst 9-10 serving, 2 kills, 1 block; Rachael Sawyer 1 kill; Jenna Davisson 1 kill; Yazmine Cervantes 1 kill; Carisa Frazier 14-16 serving, 1 ace; Jenny Bello 2 aces.

CURLEW – The District 7 1B volleyball tournament gets under way this week in north champ Curlew and south champ Wilbur-Creston high schools.
“Win one game and advance to round two at Northwest Christian on Saturday, Nov. 9,” Curlew athletic director Charlie Groth said.
The south No. 2, most likely Odessa-Harrington, takes on the north No. 3, Republic, at 2 p.m. Thursday, Nov. 7, at Curlew.
Curlew takes on south No. 3 Valley Christian at 4 p.m.
The losers play at 6 p.m. The winners play at 8 p.m.
Play continues at Northwest Christian on Saturday. The championship game, between the winners in the north and south the first day, is 3 p.m.
The eight-team tournament is double elimination for three berths to state.
PATEROS – There is little doubt which 1B volleyball team is the best in the region.
No. 5 state-ranked Pateros took the regional crown and finished 15-0 after beating No. 6 Almira-Coulee-Hartline, 3-1, in a non-league match Oct. 30.
The Nannies, who produced the school’s first undefeated regular season since 1991, open district play against south champion Moses Lake at 10 a.m. Saturday, Nov. 9, at Ephrata High School, 333 Fourth Ave. N.W.
Which second-place team from the north heads to the tournament was to be determined with Entiat taking on Waterville (both 1-3 in league) on Tuesday, Nov. 5. The loser would be eliminated.
The winner advances to host the No. 3 team from the south division, which appears to be Soap Lake, in a pigtail game Thursday, Nov. 7. The loser is out.
That winner advances with a No. 2 seed from the north to play Easton at the district tournament in Ephrata. The loser is out.
The winner plays the loser of the game between division champions for a No. 2 seed to state.
Pateros topped ACH 25-22, 25-12, 21-25 and 25-23.
“We’d been gearing up for this match for weeks,” Pateros coach Gene Dowers said.
“ACH is such a fine team. They make you work so hard to earn points,” the coach said. “You have to be so smart and so aggressive to keep them from doing what they want with their offense.”
Dowers said despite the preparation, he was not fully sure how the Nannies would play since they were hosting senior night (Jessie Dowers and Chloe Gill) and it was in the middle of homecoming week.
“But everything kept turning into a positive and the outcome was amazing.”
Dowers and Gill have played volleyball together since the fourth grade, which includes 17 different teams and three trips to the national championships, coach Dowers said.
Pateros stats: Chloe Gill 15 kills, 10/12 serves, 20 passes, 31 digs, 1 block; Jessi Dowers 9 kills, 21/24 serves w/6 aces, 10 assists, 9 passes, 11 digs; Katarina Wilson 15/18 serves w/1 ace, 9 assists, 2 passes, 11 digs; Grace Williams 1 kill, 16/18 serves w/5 aces, 17 passes, 22 digs, 1 block; EmmaLee Luft 8/9 serves w/2 aces, 9 passes, 26 digs; Ashton Steggall 4 kills, 1 pass, 1 dig, 3 blocks; Madison White 11/13 serves, 8 passes, 3 digs, 3 blocks; Brandy Woodward 1 kill, 4 assists.

BRIDGEPORT – Bridgeport worked last week and into this week preparing for district play and eventually a trip to state.
The Fillies, the Central Washington 2B League champs, finished the regular season falling in a non-league match at Central Washington 1B League champ Pateros, 3-0, on Oct. 29.
Bridgeport committed 18 attack errors and committed serving errors, too, in the loss, Bridgeport coach Hanna Coffman said.
“Our focus moving forward is to get prepared for districts on Nov. 9 in Ephrata and state the following weekend,” Coffman said.
The Fillies play Kittitas, the south champ, for the No. 1 or No. 2 seed to state at 6 p.m. at Ephrata High School, 333 Fourth Ave. N.W. The match is for No. 1 and No. 2 seeds to state.
This is only the second time in school history that Bridgeport reached state.
Oroville is at White Swan on Thursday, Nov. 7, in a loser out match.
