The Odessa Record -

Volleyball team takes fourth place at state


November 21, 2019

The Tiger volleyball team wound up in fourth place in last week's state tournament played at the Sundome in Yakima. On Thursday, the first day of the tournament, the team won their first game played at 8 a.m. in a 3-2 victory over Three Rivers Christian of Longview that went the full five sets. Later that same day, they faced Pateros and came away with a much easier win 3-0.

Competition heated up on Friday, the final day of the tournament. The Tigers faced Oakesdale, the defending champions of 2018, who had little trouble sending the Tigers into the consolation bracket. Oakesdale went on to play Pomeroy in the championship match and ended up losing to that team three sets to two in a well fought battle to the finish. In none of the five sets did the final score exceed a five-point margin between those two teams.

The Tigers went on to play ACH for the third- and fourth-place spots, with ACH once again defeating Odessa just as it had during the regular season and during district play. Nevertheless, the fourth-place finish capped a fine season for new head coach Suzie Deife and her assistant coaches. They all did Odessa proud.
