MONTESANO — Montesano took control early and cruised to a 25-9, 25-12, 25-13 victory over Rochester in Evergreen 1A play on Wednesday.

Jordan Spradlin led the Bulldogs (9-1, 11-1) with 11 kills and four solo blocks. Myranda Floch added 10 kills, Ambi Howell dished out 15 assists, five aces and 100 percent serving (20-for-20). Megan Choate added seven assists and eight digs and Madi Studer brought up 10 digs.

Montesano won the junior varsity match in three sets.
