Prep Roundup: Elma sweeps; Monte girls win in cross country


Eagles sweep

ELMA — Host Elma completed an unbeaten boys Evergreen 1A League season by sweeping a multi-school meet on Thursday at the Eagle Field baseball/softball complex.

Led by Wesley Allen’s individual victory, the Eagles finished with 44 points. Class 2B Mossyrock was second with 47. Rochester, also previously unbeaten in league competition, was third with 54.

Elma also won the girls meet with 28 points. Hoquiam was second with 43.

Allen extended an early lead to win in 17:18 for 3.05 miles. Mossyrock’s Brandon Butter was second, 38 seconds back.

Elma’s Dylan Bennett, Lukas Starks and Kyle Smith also cracked the top 10.

“I thought we came out and competed really well,” Elma coach Dave Beeler said.

Elma’s Daphne Peek won the girls race in 21:41. She topped Adna’s Jessie Von Bargen by 15 seconds. Elma’s Luna Zang was third and Willapa Valley’s Jessica Cook fifth.

The Eagles have often struggled to field a complete girls team this season.

“We’re a pretty solid girls team, we just have to have five girls running at the same time,” Beeler said. “I’m happy with the way we ran today, we had five girls in the top 11.”

Most of the Twin Harbors schools will compete in today’s Grizzly Alumni Invitational at Hoquiam’s Sea Breeze Oval.

Monte girls win

TENINO — Sweeping the first four places, Montesano captured a multi-school girls meet Thursday at Tenino.

Recovering from a recent illness, Monte’s Gabrielle Rudolph won the girls race in 19:18. Teammates Andrea Ostwald and Sydney Potter ran second and third, respectively, while Bulldog freshman Baylee Roble outkicked Ocosta’s Kathryn Anderson for fourth.

“We only had five girls today and still wound up winning the meet,” Monte coach James Edwards noted.

The Bulldog girls scored 26 points, 21 ahead of Morton/White Pass. Ocosta was third with 49 points.

Montesano’s Brandon Lovell won the boys race in 16:51, but the Bulldogs were unable to field a complete team. Forks took team honors with 45 points. Ocosta was fourth with 87 points.

Edwards cited Lovell and Gabe Spearin for fine performances among the boys.

Ocosta’s girls were short-handed in this meet. Wildcat coach Aaron Anderson cited Rebekah Saul and Drake Mitby for strong showings.

Bobcats 109, Centralia-Chehalis 71

CENTRALIA — Aberdeen remained unbeaten in Evergreen 2A Conference competition by trouncing the Centralia-Chehalis combine on Thursday at Centralia.

The Bobcats (5-0) displayed their characteristic balance in this meet. They won seven events, but only Taylor Jones (200 ind. medley and 100 breaststroke) was a double individual victor.

Danielle Rowe took the 50 free, Keola Holt the 100 free and Naomi Wolfenberger captured the diving.

Kelsey Graham, who met district-qualifying standards in two events, and Wolfenberger, who qualified for district in the 100 butterfly, were commended by Bobcat coach Jan Simons. Mari Rabung improved 34 points in diving and Hailey Meers and Marlee Luzzi were also cited for time drops.

Aberdeen coaches also took the unusual step of thanking their bus driver for his positive attitude.

The Bobcats travel to Capital on Thursday.

200 medley relay — 2:19.03 — Aberdeen (May, Mari Rabung, Jones, D. Rowe), Centralia-Chehalis, Aberdeen. 200 free —2:22.17 — Godlewski (CC), L.

Bulldogs 3, Pirates 1

MONTESANO — Doing all its scoring in the first half, Montesano toppled Adna in Evergreen 1A League play on Thursday.

Bulldog Tianna Schurr dribbled around the defender in the fourth minute to drive the ball in from 18 yards out.

In the 11th minute, LeAnn Rhoden crossed the ball and passed to Makenzi Howard, who touched it in for the Bulldogs (9-3).

Jennifer Johnson knocked a 35-yard free kick off the back post. Taylor Birdsall headed in the rebound.

The score was 3-0 at halftime.

The Pirates scored in the 57th minute on a breakaway.

“We had opportunities to score in the second half,” said MHS coach Jeff Lenherr. “But you could tell that we have played five games in the past 11 days. We did outshoot them, 20-4.”

Lenherr praised Hannah Quinn for her fine game defensively and Schurr on offense.

Montesano gets a 12-day break due to a forfeit from Forks and a bye before hosting Ocosta on Oct. 22.


Grizzlies win in three

FORKS — Unbeaten Hoquiam came from behind in the first two sets to beat Forks, 26-24, 26-24, 25-19, in Evergreen 1A League on Thursday.

Megan Gibson led the Grizzlies (7-0, 9-0) with 26 assists. She was also 18-for-18 with two aces. Brandi Creviston added 21 digs and she was 12-for-12 with five aces in serving.

Bailee Bradley added 13 kills and Emma Estes was 16-for-16 serving.

“We only missed one serve all night,” said HHS coach Heather Bozich. “We started slow and came from behind in the first two sets, but we pushed hard for the win. In the second set, we were down 24-21 and came from behind to win.”

The Grizzly junior varsity won in two, 25-21, 25-10.

On Tuesday, the Grizzlies will host Rochester in Hoquiam Square Garden.

Vikings in three

MENLO — Brooke Spoor’s fine all-around performance helped lift Willapa Valley to victory over Ocosta, by identical set scores of 25-20, 25-20, 25-20, in Pacific League play Thursday at Tenoski Gym.

Spoor contributed eight kills and three solo blocks. She also had a perfect night passing on serve-receive.

Valley’s Karli Friese had six kills and was also cited for passing. Emily Fluke connected on all 16 of her serves and was credited with effective setting.

“I thought we came out and played well in the first set,” Viking coach Lori Snodgrass said. “We let down a little in the second set and we rallied in the third set. Ocosta played us really tough, they were really scrappy.”

Although noting that she is still experimenting with lineup combinations, Ocosta coach Barbara Rasmus was pleased with her club’s performance.

“We did a pretty darned good job tonight, much better than the first time,” she said.

Ocosta’s Kami Strode had six kills and three blocks, while Becke Shurtz added five kills, three blocks and five aces. Those two, Emily Hurlburt and Josie Palmer each had 100 percent serving nights.

Hurlburt also brought up nine digs, two fewer than teammate Alexa Sweeney.

Ocosta won the JV contest, 17-25, 25-22, 17-15. Valley’s C squad prevailed, 25-23, 25-14.

The Vikings (5-2, 6-2) host Naselle on Tuesday. The Wildcats (2-5, 3-6) entertain Raymond the same night.

Hyaks win in four

NASELLE — Catching fire in the final two sets, North Beach topped Naselle, 25-22, 24-26, 25-14, 25-23, in a Pacific League match Thursday at Naselle.

Caitlin Oberg led Hyak hitters with seven kills. Anya Marcisz and Breanna Chaney were commended for 100 percent serving.

“I was proud of my girls for not giving up (after losing the second set),” Hyak coach Angi Schreiber said. “They really fought tonight.”

North Beach won the JV (18-25, 25-12, 15-3) and C squad (25-14, 25-13) matches.

The Hyaks (4-3, 4-4) challenge league-leading Northwest Christian on Tuesday at Lacey.

Eagles lose in three

ROCHESTER — Rochester’s Warriors swept past Elma, 25-14, 25-17, 25-14, in an Evergreen 1A League match Thursday at Rochester.

The Eagles (1-6, 1-7) were unable to approach their performance from Tuesday, when they outlasted Forks in five sets.

“We did not come to play volleyball tonight,” Eagle coach Renee Volz said.

Rochester also took the JV contest, 25-18, 25-15.

The Eagles draw the league bye Tuesday and host Hoquiam on Thursday.

Tribe falls in three

SOUTH BEND — League-leading Northwest Christian stayed composed and focused to down South Bend, 25-17, 25-14, 25-19, in Pacific League play on Thursday at Koplitz Fieldhouse.

Makenzie Russell contributed 12 kills for the Tribe (5-2, 6-3). Kathryn Staats and Kessa Wilson added five and four kills, respectively.

“We had a hard time generating our offense,” said SB coach Jackie Sanchez. “We struggled with almost everything at some point: passing, hitting, blocking. It was an off night for us, but we did serve 90 percent.”

Sanchez praised Maddie Klus for her passing.

The junior varsity split with South Bend taking the first set, 25-17, while Northwest Christian won the second, 25-22.

Raymond beat South Bend in a C squad match, 17-25, 28-26, 15-7.

Next Thursday, South Bend hits the road to Ocosta.

Acorns in three

OAKVILLE — Oakville rolled past Wishkah, 25-18, 25-13, 25-21, in a non-league contest Thursday at Oakville.

“We continue to improve as we get more games under out belt,” Wishkah coach Darci McMaster said. “We will keep working on our communication, which has been toward the top of our list since the beginning of the season.”

The Loggerettes (0-9) travel to Lake Quinault on Tuesday.


Beavers 153, Grizzlies 183

Hoquiam freshman John Sand again took medalist honors but talented Woodland ran away with the team victory in a Southwest Washington 1A League finale Thursday at Highland Golf Course.

Sand recorded one birdie, one bogey and seven pars for an even-par 35. He was the medalist or co-medalist for every Hoquiam dual match this season.

“He has not lost to anybody, so that is a significant accomplishment,” Grizzly coach Larry Dublanko said.

Dublanko also cited Austin Eberwein, recently promoted from the junior varsity, for firing a 47.

Woodland, meanwhile, bolstered its credentials as a favorite for the district team championship. The Huddleston brothers, Tanner and Hayden, each shot 36s.

The district 1A tourney is scheduled for Monday and Tuesday at Tumwater Valley Golf Course.

Woodland (153) — Tanner Huddleston 36, Hayden Huddleston 36, Dalton Burnett 42, Ryan Sturdivan 43, Dillon Francke 46, Jon Watts 39.

Hoquiam (183) — John Sand 35, Josh Bishop 48, Zach Emerson 54, Kolby Crowell 53, Dylan Kaczmarczyk 59, Austin Eberwein 47.
