Bobcats 227, Tigers 229
Visiting Centralia showed some front-end punch, but Aberdeen’s depth proved to be too much in this Evergreen 2A golf match at Grays Harbor Country Club on Monday.
The Tigers’ Tucker Voetberg grabbed medalist honors with a 36, with his brother, Deter, shooting a 39. Other than that, Centralia was behind Aberdeen, led by Devin Daniels’ 43. The four scoring Bobcats (1-1, 1-2) finished within three strokies of each other.
“We played better than normal, not our best, but more solid play today,” AHS head coach Harley Revel said. “Devin had just one bad hole. If he got a bogey on that hole, he would have had a 39. He was solid all day and (that round) was an improvement for him.”
On Wednesday, Aberdeen travels to Olympia Country & Golf Club to take on Capital.
Centralia (229) — Tucker Voetberg 36, Deter Voetberg 39, Matt Lloyd 56, Aaron Berg 44, Tyson Larson 54, Austin Alexander 62.
Aberdeen (227) — Brad Farrer 50, Stewart Ball 54, Devin Daniels 43, Eric Hagen 44, Justin Cox 44, Kegan Bridges 46.
JV medalist — Sam Wagner (A) 50.
Bulldogs sweep Tribe
SOUTH BEND —Fighting off set point in the first stanza, Montesano took advantage of South Bend miscues en route to a 26-24, 25-17, 25-19 non-league match win on Monday night.
The Indians (2-1) led 24-21 in the first set and were serving before a missed serve, then a few misplayed shots allowed the Bulldogs (4-0) to win the first set. From there, the visitors controlled the match to the end.
“They had the momentum (in the first set) and we fought back one point at a time,” Montesano head coach Debbie Gibson said. “We capitalized on their mistakes and we were able to score some points on that. It was a good serving night for us, everyone served well.”
“We missed a serve, then mishandled the next couple of balls for the loss,” South Bend head coach Jackie Sanchez added. “We struggled the rest of the evening. The kids missed serves at important times and didn’t do the little things. We weren’t as focused as we should have been against a quality team like Montesano.”
Kendra Warnock led Montesano with 10 kills and nine digs, with setter Courtney Swan added six kills, 14 assists and seven digs. Ambi Howell had six digs and Madi Studer served up four aces.
Makenzie Russell led South Bend with 11 kills and seven blocks. Emily Sanchez and Katlyn Sawyer added seven kills each and Amanda Curtis was cited for serving.
South Bend won the junior varsity match, 28-26, 25-17.
Chitwhins in five
MATLOCK — After winning a marathon first set, Taholah had difficulty maintaining the momentum before rallying for a 28-26, 12-25, 21-25, 25-17, 15-7 win over Mary M. Knight in a Coastal League match on Monday.
“We lost some momentum in the second game,” Taholah head coach Jinny Marchand said. “(The girls) refocused. Our serving improved and we got more than just one over at a time in the fourth set. It carried over into the fifth set. It was a good match.”
Rheanna Logan was cited for her serving and Rachel Cheney was cited for net play.
On Thursday, Taholah hosts Oakville.
Acorns in three
OAKVILLE — Host Oakville survived a tight first set from visiting Wishkah, but the Loggerettes were unable to take a set away in a 25-23, 25-11, 25-8 Coastal League match on Monday.
“We communicated well and worked well together in the first game,” Wishkah head coach Tove Reibel said, “then the communication levels dropped off in the second game. There really wasn’t much communicating in the third game.”
Junior Eliza Kinnaman was cited for all-around play and leadership.
On Thursday, Wishkah (0-3, 0-4) travels to Lake Quinault.
Bobcats 6, Hawks 0
LACEY — Aberdeen came into town to take on short-handed River Ridge on Monday and made sure it walked off the court with an Evergreen 2A match sweep.

The win for Aberdeen allowed it to keep pace with Capital and Tumwater atop the league standings at 6-1 each.

Dillon Rowe (A) def. Chris Jackson 6-0, 6-1. Cole Edwards (A) def. Daniel Lee 6-0, 6-0. John Solan (A) def. Kurt Price 6-0, 6-2. All three doubles matches were forfeits to Aberdeen.
