'Cats win 3 matches in tournament | Volleyball
The Oak Harbor volleyball team tied for first in its pool at the 32-team SunDome Tournament in Yakima Saturday, Sept. 10.
The Wildcats defeated Riverside Christian of Yakima 25-14, 25-14 and Pasco 25-16, 25-17 and split with Grandview 22-25, 26-24 in pool play.
Both Oak Harbor and Grandview finished with 5-1 game records, and the Greyhounds received the No.1 seed into the championship round by nipping the Wildcats by one in the point-differential tie-breaker based upon their head-to-head match. The Wildcats, however, posted a differential of 12 points higher than Grandview in all pool games.
That sent Oak Harbor into a playoff with the No. 2 seeds from the seven other pools.
The Wildcats won in the opening round over Hockinson of Brush Prairie 22-25, 25-15, 15-7. In the semifinals, Oak Harbor fell to Kennewick 17-25, 23-25.
Coach Kerri Molitor said, "We played very inconsistently throughout the day. A lot of unforced errors that we need to eliminate. (We had) some really good moments, but we have a lot to work on."
West Valley of Yakima defeated Richland for the tournament title. Grandview dropped both its matches in the No. 1 seed playoffs.
Oak Harbor (1-1) goes to Lake Stevens (0-1) Thursday, Sept.15, at 7 p.m.
