In volleyball the Lady Outlaws started their week at home with a sweep (26-24, 25-16, 25-15) against the Creswell Bulldogs. Two days later they made the long road trip to Siuslaw, and quickly swept the Vikings with scores of 25-10, 25-16, and 25-9.
In Tuesday’s action, the Bulldogs showed a lot of fight in a gritty matchup against the top-ranked Outlaws. The first set was back and forth. Both teams struggled at moments and at other times both showed signs of brilliance. The Outlaws squeaked out the first-set win.
Sisters slowly and methodically worked through their offense in the second and third sets. They weren’t rattled, took what the Bulldog defense gave them, and cruised through to a 3-0 victory.
Two days later against Siuslaw, the Outlaws again took the match in three straight sets. Sisters was strong from the service line, and the Vikings struggled to get into any rhythm on offense.
Robertson was aggressive on the block and did a great job of shutting down the Vikings’ best hitter. Vohs and Myhre both played strong and were smart from the outside.
Vohs led the squad with 15 kills and Myhre tallied 12. Mia Monaghan finished with 15 digs on the night, and Vohs added 10. Davis recorded 30 assists.
“We are almost to the half point in our season and the girls have worked so hard,” Coach Rory Rush said. “We played three tournaments in a row and battled some tough teams in our preseason and first half of league. Each day they show up and put in the work, not only physically, but mentally. They are hungry to get better and grow together as a team. As they continue to learn through the ups and downs, I couldn’t be more proud as their coach to watch them take ownership of their journey. I’m excited to watch them continue to grow throughout the second half of our season.”
Sisters was to play at La Pine on Tuesday, September 26. They will play on the road at Elmira on Thursday.
