PINE-EAGLE — Wallowa won four matches and came out as tournament champion in the Pine Eagle Volleyball Tournament held Saturday at Halfway.

"For the most part, I was totally impressed" with the girls, said Cougars coach Terri Wilson. The girls won the tournament despite missing two players, one of whom was Sarah Bomberger, one of their top hitters.

Ten teams played in the tourney, including defending state champion Cove. Wallowa and Cove ended up playing for the tournament championship.

In a round-robin portion of the tournament, the Cougar girls split against Cambridge, Idaho, 25-15, 21-25, but because Wallowa scored more points (46-40), the Cougars were awarded the tiebreaker. Wallowa went on to beat Adrian 25-17, 25-11, Huntington 25-19, 25-7 and Burnt River 25-7, 25-9.

In pool play, Amanda Wilson had 31 kills, while Megan McLain had 18 blocks and 17 kills. Lynique Oveson had 11 kills, while Tasha Schacher came off the bench in one match and immediately hit four straight kills.

The team also put 93 percent of its serves into play. Holli Barton had 11 aces, while Katie Sturtevant had seven aces.

Wallowa ended the afternoon as the top seed in its bracket. Cove also won its bracket by beating Pine Eagle 25-13, 25-17, Joseph 25-10, 25-9 and Prairie City 25-16, 25-13. Cove split with Powder Valley 23-25, 25-19, but won the tiebreaker on points (48-44).

In a hard-fought title match, the Cougars beat the Leopards 25-23, 25-20, 25-20. Cove coach Kim Tally said the Leopards were ahead early until their big power hitter, Kelcie Robinson, went out with a sprained ankle.

Tally said sophomore Ashley Holland and some freshmen stepped in for Robinson, but that she is a tough player to replace. Tally doesn't know the severity of the injury yet, but she is hoping Robinson can play in Cove's league opener Friday against Powder Valley.

In the title match, the Wallowa girls went 60-for-62 on their serves (97 percent). Barton hit 17-17 on her serves with eight aces, while Amanda Wilson had 10 kills and put 95 percent of her hits into play.


Joseph's volleyball team went 0-4 in matches Saturday at the Pine-Eagle tournament.

The Eagles fell to Cove 10-25, 9-25; Powder Valley 20-25, 20-25; Pine-Eagle 18-25, 23-25; and Prairie City 20-25, 19-25.

Jerri Moro led Joseph with 19 kills. Haddie Carpenter and Jessie Botham both had 13. Tiffany Zimmer had six.

Powder Valley

Powder Valley played four matches beating Prairie City 25-21, 25-20; spliting with Pine-Eagle 25-23, 19-25; beating Joseph 25-20, 25-20; splitting with Cove 25-23, 19-25.

Powder Valley was second in its pool and played Cambridge from the other pool. Cambridge beat Powder Valley 18-25, 22-25, 21-25.

"Against Cambridge, we just ran out of gas," Powder Valley coach Molly Smith said.
