ATHENA — The Union volleyball girls fought a fierce battle with former league rival Wallowa to win their second straight Weston Tournament at Athena Saturday.

Union won the finals match 25-22, 25-16, 21-25, 25-23. Bobcats coach Patty Herron said the 182-point match took 90 minutes to finish.

Jana Brotherton led the way for the Bobcats. She hit 34-42 with 18 kills, and she served 12-for-12. Sophomore Sandra Meredith hit 24-for-27, with eight kills in her first-ever day of varsity volleyball.

"She (Meredith) played awesome. We were just tickled with her," Herron said. Jaycee Waite served 14-for-14.

Union beat Sherman County 25-13, 25-17, 25-11 and Pilot Rock 25-13, 25-6, 25-6. Wallowa got to the Weston finals by beating Stanfield 25-21, 25-9, 24-26, 25-14. The Cougars then beat Weston-McEwen 25-16, 25-23, 24-26, 25-14.

In all, Wallowa played 529 points of volleyball during the day. "They were exhausted by the end of the day," said Cougars coach Terri Wilson.

Against Sherman County, the Bobcats' Brotherton was 29-for-30 on her hits, with 12 kills. Melissa Helmer served 17-for-17 with seven aces.

Against Pilot Rock, the Bobcats tallied 17 aces. Brotherton had 10 kills while Meredith was 9-for-9 on her hits with six kills. Teresa Weeks served 10-for-10 with three aces, while Colbi Robertson served 15-for-15 with an ace

The Cougars' Megan McLain was 90 percent on her serve receives for the day, and had 17 kills and 17 solo blocks. Holli Barton put 52 of her 54 serves into play and was 36-for-42 on her hits, with 10 kills.

Sarah Bomberger, now playing for Wallowa, had 31 kills, 19 solo blocks and eight aces for the tournament. Amanda Wilson served 40-for-42 (95 percent), with 30 kills. Lynique Oveson was 59-for-68 on her serve receive and 39-for-42 on her hits (93 percent). Setter Katie Sturtevant had 35 assists.

Wilson said the Cougars' reserve players did well. "All four of our substitutes came in and did a great job," she said. Wilson said sub Amber Josi had the team's highest passing percentage on the day.

"We started off slowly with a loss to Weston McEwen, then lost to Stanfield in four games," Joseph coach Kendall Hayes said. "Finally, we beat the La Grande JV in three games."

Scores of the Joseph matches were unavailable today.

"Overall, I am pleased with the way the girls are starting to pull together as a team," Hayes said.

"It is basically a brand new team, and they are already starting to gel this early in the season. We did some really good things on Saturday. I'm excited to watch them grow and improve this year."
