There is a new addition to the White River High trophy case, this one provided by the Hornet volleyball team that placed fourth during the Class 2A state championships.

The 2A tourney, staged Nov. 10-11 at St. Martin’s University in Lacey, saw the Hornets open with a pair of victories and advance to the semifinal round.

White River was first paired against Black Hills. Despite one tough stretch where the Tumwater girls rallied, the Hornet had their way, winning 25-21, 25-14, 25-16. In Friday’s nightcap, White River again prevailed in three games, beating Ellensburg 25-20, 25-11 and 25-17.

Friday’s success came as no surprise to anyone at St. Martin’s, as coach Lina Randall’s Hornets had polished off the regular season with a perfect 15-0 slate.

Day 2 of the tournament brought tougher competition White River’s way and the result was a pair of losses. The Hornets first fell 3-1 to Burlington-Edison, a team that went on to win the tournament title; then, in the battle for third and fourth place, White River dropped a 3-1 decision to the Ridgefield Spudders.
