Home arrow Opinion arrow COVE, WALLOWA SWEEP OPENERS



COVE — The Cove Leopards want to take their volleyball game up a notch from last season, and the defending state champs started the 2002 campaign by doing so.

Ione was the Leopards' first victim Friday, losing 25-14, 25-12, 25-8 in Cove's season opener.

"We were pushing the limits with our hitting. … We've been trying to pick up where we left off last season," Cove coach Kim Tally said. "Overall, I was really impressed with all of our stats for a season opener."

Cove served 94 percent, received 90 percent of Ione's serves, set for 98 percent and hit at 80 percent.

Kelcie Robinson had 12 kills for Cove, while Amy Puckett served a perfect 13-for-13. More important, Tally said, was that the bench played well when it had a chance.

"That's what people are going to see this year. Even though I didn't lose anybody, and this year's seniors are going to be awfully strong, I also have a very strong bench, (and) having a strong bench will really come into play," Tally said.

Cove plays today at the Elgin tournament. The tournament also involves Umatilla and the Pendleton JV.


ENTERPRISE — Wallowa improved to 2-0 on the young season with a 25-15, 25-15, 25-19 non-league victory Friday over Enterprise.

"Our passing was much better than it was last weekend, and our hitting was as strong or stronger than it was," Wallowa coach Terri Wilson said.

Wilson mentioned Lynique Oveson and Holli Barton as her top passers, while Sarah Bomberger had six serving aces and Katie Sturtevant had five.

The hitting attack was paced by Amanda Wilson's eight kills, but Bomberger added six kills, Sturtevant had four and Megan McLain added three.

Wallowa plays today at the Weston-McEwen tournament in Athena.


JOSEPH — The Joseph Eagles dropped their season opener Friday against Pilot Rock.

The Rockets took the Eagles in three games, 29-27, 25-17, 26-24.

"Our inexperience showed tonight," Joseph coach Kendall Hayes said. "The girls are working through a new lineup. I think we worked out some of those kinks."

Joseph plays today at the Weston-McEwen tournament.


STANFIELD — Union used a strong defense to win its regular season opener Friday.

Jana Brotherton was 11-for-12 on defensive digs as Union beat Stanfield 25-16, 25-10, 25-10.

"Our defense really did a nice job tonight," Union coach Patty Herron said.

Union's serving also played a role in the win. The Bobcats missed just two serves in the three games, with Jennifer Sasser getting five aces.

Brotherton had nine hitting kills, with Deanna Hall adding five kills, and setter Melissa Helmer had 17 assists.

"She mixed up the plays extremely well," Herron said.

Union plays today at the Weston-McEwen tournament.
