Volleyball: St. Helens wins fourth match in a row

Just two nights after wiping the volleyball court with Milwaukie, the St. Helens Lady Lions put Parkrose to bed in a hurry, beating the Broncos 25-7, 25-8, 25-14 for their fourth consecutive victory, and third straight-set win in succession.

Once again, Taylor Albertson led the way on offense with 15 kills in a match that was far more competitive than the match two nights earlier. Fellow hard-hitter Logan Kalauli notched 14 kills.

More impressively, the Lions were perfect on serving. Mercedes Massey was 16 of 16 from behind the line, as was Hailee Fischer, who had 18 aces against Milwaukie.

The win pushes St. Helens up into the ninth spot in the power rankings, still a few spots behind No. 2 La Salle. They'll have Putnam (1-9, 1-7 NWOC) on Tuesday evening after the Kingsmen picked up their first three sets of the season against — wait for it — Milwaukie on Thursday night.
