The Lady Outlaws swept their way to the top spot in the 4A Oregon West Conference. They defeated Cascade in three straight sets on Tuesday, October 19, and two days later on senior night they posted a 3-0 win over Woodburn. The wins gave them co-champion status with Cascade.
Tuesday’s match against Cascade was a battle from start to finish. In the first set the Outlaws played from behind the whole game. They were down 17-21 when Hannah Fendall stepped back to serve. The Outlaws defended the serve with two big kills from Gracie Vohs, and the momentum shifted. Sisters went on a roll and tied it up with seven straight kills. The Outlaws took a one-point lead and then the Cougars made a hitting error on game point to give Sisters the win.
Sydney Myhre served for the first seven points in the second set to put the Outlaws up 7-0. The Cougars called a time-out, but that didn’t disrupt the Outlaws’ focus. Sisters maintained the lead and went on to win 25-18.
The third and final set was back and forth the entire time, and a barn-burner at the end. Midway through, Vohs stepped
back to serve and pushed the Outlaws to a 18-13 lead, but the momentum didn’t last.
A Cascade player cut herself and the game came to a halt as the player waited for a bandaid. The Cougars called for a time-out, and when teams got back on the court Cascade had the momentum. The Cougars went on a six-point run and the Outlaws found themselves down 19-20. The score went back and forth, point by point, and with the game deadlocked 23-23, teams exchanged service errors to tie the game 26-26. The lead switched back
