Lions volleyball sweeps Milwaukie

St. Helens has secured three shutouts in a row


     -     The Lions could do no wrong on the road against the Northwest Oregon Conference rival Mustangs on Tuesday.

St. Helens swept all-conference seniors Hailee Ford and Julia Clevinger and Milwaukie 25-18, 25-14, 25-5.

"We get better each set," Lions coach Tom Ray said.

Brianna Cathers spiked 19 kills and served three aces for St. Helens (4-1 overall, 3-1 Northwest Oregon). Mercedes Massey had four kills and an ace, and Emilee Webster dealt two aces and a kill.

The Lions did the same to all-conference senior outside hitter Shaianne Stanley and Parkrose, back from the state play-in round, 25-8, 25-15, 25-18 on Thursday, Sept. 8, in Portland.

The Mustangs fell to 0-6, 0-4 and the Broncos dropped to 0-3, 0-3.

St. Helens, up to No. 12 in the state, has won three in a row and was scheduled to host 6-foot all-conference senior outside hitter Makenna Gambee, all-conference sophomore outside hitter Shaddie Kalamau and Hillsboro (4-1, 3-1) on Thursday, the results of which were unavailable at press time.

The Lions, who surrender the fourth-fewest sets in the state (5), have swept the Spartans in all four meetings since they came down from Class 6A in 2014.
