Volleyball team begins league play 2-1 after thrilling win against Lake Oswego


The Girls’ Volleyball team staked its spot as one of the top competitors in the Three Rivers League last night after an intense five-set win against Lake Oswego.

“Lake Oswego is a good team and it was a tough match,” Aubrey Pesicka, senior, said. “We were hoping to bounce back with a win after Tuesday’s tough loss to Lakeridge. We just needed to be on our A-game, and we did just that.”

After the team’s tough defeat at the hands of Lakeridge on Sept. 27, the Lake Oswego match looked as if it might be a mirror image of the game before. After the team took a two set lead, the Lakers rallied back to tie the match at two sets apiece, but the Lions pulled out the final set after multiple lead changes.

Though the team had lost its invitational game against Centennial on Sept. 10, the team recovered rapidly on Sept. 13, winning against West Salem 3-0.

They followed up with their volleyball tournament on Sept. 17. The team went undefeated, winning 2-0 against South Salem, 2-1 against Barlow and 2-0 against Century.

“I think our team is doing well so far,” Emmalee Scheid, junior, said. “We all work very well together, so it’s easy to step on the court and work as a team.”

The team won 3-0 against Oregon City last week on Sept. 22, beginning a stretch of challenging league games to determine its stake in the TRL.
