The 11-2 White River High volleyball team assured itself of a second place finish in South Puget Sound League 2A play, crushing two opponents in straight sets.

The Hornets first backhanded Eatonville Oct. 18, stopping the Cruisers cold 25-23, 25-19 and 25-13. Middle hitter Emily Peloli and outside hitters Dannie Stroud and Kaytee Hodgson went on a killing spree, combining for 15 bazooka blasts over the Cruisers’ net.

Oct. 20, in its 25-15, 25-11, 25-16 bludgeoning of Franklin Pierce, Stroud and Peloli were again determining factors in the outcome. Stroud and Jailyn VanSickle had four kills apiece, while Peloli had a half-dozen kills, two blocks and two aces.

With its convincing conquests, White River punched its ticket for the SPSL 2A subdistrict tournament at Franklin Pierce High School Friday and Saturday.

The Hornets are slated to be in the Saturday subdistrict spotlight at 2 p.m. against North Kitsap of the Olympic League and will also compete at 4 p.m., with that challenger yet to be determined.

White River is guaranteed an appearance in the Nov. 5-6 district tournament, also at Franklin Pierce, but is playing for seeding.
