They girls beat Molalla in three games, won the first two games against Yamhill-Carlton before losing the rubber game, and then won the consolation bracket at the Salem Academy Tournament over the weekend.

After the Molalla match, coach Amy McNeil said, 'The girls played really well last night. Phlycia Haigh had an outstanding match! Her first three hits of the night were kills. She finished with eight kills and six aces. I was pleased to see her focused and competing and playing her game. We have our line up and rotation down and are focused and ready for league tomorrow night.'

Scappoose would top Molalla in three games: 25-12, 25-17, 25-13. Katie Nelson was 100 percent serving on the night. Lexine Loos and Haigh were both 92 percent serving. Loos also had eight attack kills in the match.

The team would start off well at Yamhill-Carlton, winning the first two games. They stumbled a bit in the next two, and then lost a close rubber game. Final scoring for Scappoose: 25-14, 25-21, 17-25, 22-25, 12-15.

In the tournament on Saturday, Scappoose went 3-3 in pool play and failed to make the championship bracket. They beat East Linn fairly easily, but lost to Vernonia, 25-27, 23-25. Scappoose played all 10 of their players in the tournament.

'We had positive 21 points for the morning and Vernonia had 14 and East Linn 2,' McNeil noted. 'So that tells you that we played well but made too many mistakes to win the games. Megan Gaylord and Nikki Andreotti had a great tournament. We beat Dayton and Horizon Christian in bracket play to take home the trophy. First trophy in a long time for Scappoose volleyball.'

The team topped Horizon Christian 25-18, 25-12, and Dayton 19-25, 25-8, 15-9.
