JOHN DAY — Union coach Mendy Clark said she could hardly contain herself after her Lady Cats swept (25-22, 25-11, 25-17) Grant Union Tuesday to clinch second place in the Blue Mountain Conference with the district tournament set for Saturday in Stanfield.

Dani Sturm had nine kills, Bayly Poor added seven, and both Viki McCabe and Kelsey Walenta finished with five in the victory.

The win guarenteed the Lady Cats a first-round playoff game.

Union will face off with Heppner to start off Saturday’s tourney.
