Okanogan reaches 1A state
WENATCHEE – The Okanogan volleyball team dropped a 3-0 match with league-champion Chelan then edged Omak, 3-2, at the district tournament to earn a berth to 1A state.
Okanogan (12-4) opens the 16-team state tournament against No. 2-ranked King’s (26-3) at 5:15 p.m. Friday, Nov. 15, at the Yakima SunDome.
“Wow, what a night,” said Okanogan coach Ray Cross. “The Omak, Okanogan match was one for the ages. With a winner to a state match, the stakes could not have been higher. Both teams squared off and fought with all they had.”
The Bulldogs pulled out the win 25-14, 22-25, 22-25, 25-21 and 15-11.
“I really have to hand it to Omak they really came out to play,” said Cross. “They were well coached and had an awesome game plan.
“After falling behind two sets to one, the Bulldogs dug deep. (They) showed a lot of heart and pulled off the victory. I could not be more proud of our girls.”
Cross said what worked against Omak in two previous matches was not working in the third battle.
“They had a great block working against our outsides and dug a lot a balls,” said Cross. “This is where I hand it to my girls and coaching staff. We came up with a new plan and inserted Katie Serles to give us another set of hands. We moved the sets a little and added some new angles. That really got the hitters going.”
Okanogan stats: Renea Taylor 27 kills; Jenna Radke 26 kills; Becca Hawley 20 kills; Linda Rodriguez 26 digs, 2.30 passing rate; Anna Arroyo passing 1.60. Izzy Buchert 53 assists.
