EHS CROSS COUNTRY: Weiman leads Lady Hornets to slim victory

The White River volleyball squad is still on fire as it pushed its perfect South Puget Sound League 2A record to 8-0 last week, sweeping Washington 25-18, 25-16 and 25-22 and then prevailing over visiting Steilacoom 28-26, 25-16, 23-25 and 25-12.

The White River volleyball squad is still on fire as it pushed its perfect South Puget Sound League 2A record to 8-0 last week, sweeping Washington 25-18, 25-16 and 25-22 and then prevailing over visiting Steilacoom 28-26, 25-16, 23-25 and 25-12.

At Washington, Dannie Stroud recorded 12 kills and Haley Valalla had 10. Alisha Bidwell also performed admirably, accruing a half dozen kills on 10 attempts.

Two days later, when Steilacoom darkened the Hornets’ door, White River coach Stryder Argo called the Sentinels’ play top notch, while criticizing the serve-receive displayed by his girls.

“Steilacoom played well, especially in the first set, and in that same first set we had nine serve-receive errors, which nearly ended up costing us the set,” Argo said.

“I made a dramatic change in our rotations late in that first set, because we were down,” Argo said. “That same rotation worked well for us in the second set, but in the third set we made a lot of unforced errors and lost the first set we’ve dropped in awhile. I put the original starting line-up back in for the fourth set and we won that one.”

Stroud went wild in the Steilacoom match, accounting for 23 kills, but the injury bug bit Valalla. Results were expected Monday afternoon and Argo held that he is hoping that Valalla will be able to play by districts a couple of weeks from now.

It will not get any easier for White River to keep its league mark unblemished this week as the Hornets will take their show on the road. The Hornets visited a tough Eatonville squad Monday evening and will travel to Franklin Pierce tonight, Wednesday.
