Last updated 4/6/2021 at Noon
Sisters couldn’t overcome league rival Sweet Home in their last match of the season on Wednesday, March 31. The Outlaws fell in three sets with scores of 13-25, 17-25, and 21-25. The loss means Sisters and Sweet Home were crowned co-champs.
It was a quick first set and the Huskies easily posted the win. The Outlaws had seven missed serves, and only four kills and two blocks. In the second set, Sisters missed five of their serves and only put down six kills.
Sisters battled back in the third set, and tried to find their rhythm. The set went back and forth, with only a two point spread for most of the game. A controversial call made the difference in the set. Coach Rory Rush told The Nugget that, with the score tied 20-20, Greta Davis made a kill shot down the line that the coach asserts was in — but the line judge called it out. Rush said the call completely shifted the momentum and the Lady Huskies took the lead and won by three.
Two days earlier, Sisters played at Stayton and swept the Eagles, 25-11, 25-13, and 25-12.
Sisters served strong in the first set and Stayton was kept “out of system” the entire frame. The Outlaws wrapped up the set with six kills and six aces. In the second set, Sisters recorded 14 kills and three aces. They ran their fast-paced offense, passed the ball very well, and led Stayton from start to finish. The Outlaws dominated offensively, with 12 kills in the third set, combined with great passes and tough serves.
The Outlaws were to travel to Corbett on April 6 for the first round of state competition.
