The White River volleyball squad is sizzling hot and undefeated, sporting a 4-0 overall mark and a front-running 2-0 accounting in the SPSL 2A after sweeping league foes Fife and Washington in straight sets.

The Hornets first victim was a Fife squad that absolutely gave them fits last year, handing WRHS three out of its five total setbacks. White River made the trip to Fife, emerging with a full measure of revenge by dominating the Trojans 25-16, 25-18 and 25-22 behind the strength of Dannie Stroud’s 15 kills and sophomore setter Cassidy Kunst’s 21 assists.

After swatting aside thorn in their side and long time SPSL 2A nemesis, in its league season opener on the road, the Hornets rolled out the red carpet for Washington Thursday and stuffed the Patriots in consecutive sets 25-14, 25-16 and 25-22.

Stroud, one of WRHS’s senior leaders went on another killing spree, adding a dozen rockets over the webbing and senior outside hitter Jailyn Van Sickle seemed to be ubiquitous as she chipped in vigilantly with 28 assists in three short sets.

The maroon and gold trekked to Steilacoom Tuesday with the results of that match coming too late to include here and will host Eatonville Thursday at 7:15 p.m. at The Hive.
