La Grande rolled to another Greater Oregon League victory Thursday night, sweeping the visiting Ontario Tigers 25-13, 25-6 and 25-9. The victory improves LHS to 10-2 overall and 4-0 in the GOL.

“I thought we did a nice job of keeping our focus tonight. It was nice to see that,” coach Melinda Becker said. “My bench players did a nice job when they came in. It was an overall team performance.” 

Ontario got off to a quick start in the opening set, leading 3-0 right off the bat. But LHS tallied three consecutive points to tie the game, and the Lady Tigers eventually put together a run behind the serving of Lauren Mills to take a 10-4 lead.

La Grande kept on the offensive and stretched the lead to 20-9 and eventually 24-12 before ending it to take an early advantage.

The host Tigers asserted their dominance in Game 2.

With Olivia Trotter at the service line, LHS went up 13-0 before Ontario got on the board. The visitors got within 12 points at 16-4, but La Grande kept its foot on the gas and ran away with a dominant set.

“Olivia did a really nice job serving. We did a nice job of getting on runs,” Becker said.

LHS had another fast start in Game 3, taking a 9-2 lead at the outset. The Lady Tigers extended it to 14-3 and forced OHS to take a timeout. The stoppage didn’t shake LHS at all, as La Grande came out and scored 11 of the final 16 points to complete its fourth straight league sweep of the season.

Denise Comfort had a match-high 13 kills, while Trotter had six kills to go along with a 19 for 22 night at the service line. Trotter added three serving aces.

Breanna Partney had five kills. Lauren Mills finished with four kills, three stuffed blocks and went 16 for 18 serving. Madison Elliott had 20 assists.

LHS is ranked No. 12 in the latest OSAA poll and will return to the court Tuesday at home against McLoughlin.

Thursday’s game was also La Grande’s Pink Night. All proceeds raised are being donated to the Lucius family of La Grande. A BBQ will be held today at 5:30 p.m. at Greenwood Elementary School to benefit the family. There will also be a silent auction.
