La Grande volleyball serves too hot for Mac-Hi

MILTON-FREEWATER — The La Grande volleyball Tigers didn't get a chance to run much offense Thursday against Mac-Hi, mostly because their serving was so devastating.

La Grande won 25-15, 25-6, 25-5 against the Pioneers to go 7-2 in the Greater Oregon League, one game behind first-place Burns.

The Tigers' Amanda Timm served 18-for-19 with eight aces, while Caylin Goss served 17-for-17 with six aces and Breezy Fredericksen served 12-for-12 with four aces.

Because of all the aces, La Grande didn't compile a lot of hitting stats. Kathryn Ely hit 8-for-9 with five kills, while Goss hit 9-for-10 with five kills.

"We served very tough," said coach Teresa Dowdy.

La Grande likely has to win out in league to have a chance at the GOL title. Powerful Burns has games left against weak teams at Mac-Hi and Riverside, so in order for La Grande to get a share of the title, the Tigers need Vale to beat Burns next week.

The Tigers also have to stay ahead of a hot Baker team in order to finish in the GOL top two and qualify for the postseason. La Grande has league games left against Riverside (Thursday), and Vale and Ontario (Saturday), all at home.

The Tigers will travel to Eugene today to play in the Marist Tournament Saturday. This tournament will feature many of the top 3A teams in the state.

Dowdy said the Tigers are going to the tournament expecting to have a good time. She said it will also be a good chance to see how La Grande, 26-2 overall and ranked in the top 10 all season, stacks up against the state's best.

"It should be fun and good competition," said Dowdy.
