Prep roundup for Oct. 1: Pasco volleyball tops Walla Walla

Just over a week ago, the Pasco Bulldogs had lost three of their last four Mid-Columbia Conference volleyball matches, and their MCC co-championship from a year ago might have seemed light years away.

But 10 days can make a big difference in the world of prep volleyball.

The Bulldogs looked more like the defending MCC co-champions Thursday, sweeping winless Walla Walla 25-18, 25-19, 25-22 in Pasco.

Catelyn Linke recorded match highs of 23 kills and 18 digs, and Victoria Estes chalked up 36 assists to lead the Bulldogs, who have won nine of their last 10 sets.

“We tried some different rotations tonight. It was really fun to get some girls on the court who don’t necessarily get to see the court a lot,” Pasco coach Jackie Fluaitt said.

The Blue Devils had a good night despite the loss, pulling ahead by five points early in the third set before the Bulldogs came back.

“We were playing really well in that third game. There were just a few silly errors,” Wa-Hi coach Kim McDaniels said. “We saw a lot of great things out there. We could have had them.”

Set scores: P 25-18, 25-19, 25-22. WW: Kamryn Coleman 8 kills, 2 aces, 3 digs; Noelani Helm 3 blocks, 5 digs; Therese McCarty 3 kills, 2 blocks; Tara Kirishein 15 assists, 5 digs; Emma Windsill 3 blocks, 2 kills. Pasco: Catelyn Linke 23 kills, 18 digs, 2 aces; Ashlin Orosco 11 kills; Victoria Estes 36 assists.

Chiawana 3, Kennewick 0: McKaidan Moore had a match-high 20 kills and Ashtin Olin handed out 36 assists to lead the Riverhawks to a home win over the Lions in MCC action.

“We had some passing problems and had a handful of hitting errors in that first game,” Chiawana coach Jim Steach said.

With Bethanie Nelson out with an ankle injury, the Riverhawks (7-1) brought up freshman middle Yaneli Garcia, who finished with four kills.

“We hope to have Bethanie back for Southridge on Tuesday,” Steach said. “We go to Spokane (crossover tournament) shorthanded. Natasha Hill’s sister is getting married so we won’t have her either.”

Breanna Shaffer led the Lions (1-7) with 10 kills and 15 digs,while Julissa Gonzalez had 16 digs.

Set scores: Chiawana 25-19, 25-17, 25-13. Kennewick: Breanna Shaffer 10 kills, 15 digs; Julissa Gonzalez 16 digs; Tierra Townsend 10 digs, 4 aces. Chiawana: McKaidan Moore 20K, 10 digs; Ashtin Olin 36 assts, 4K, 7 digs, 4 aces; Marissa Logozzo 17 digs; Natasha Hill 4K, 15 digs; Yaneli Garcia 4K, 1B.

Richland 3, Kamiakin 1: The Bombers moved to 8-0 on the season with an MCC road win over the Braves.

“They are big up front and their size gave us problems,” Richland coach Bob Raidl said of the Braves. “We were a little undisciplined at times.”

Holding a 2-1 lead, Richland trailed 18-12 in the fourth game. They battle back to knot the score at 22-22, then Taylor Moody served the final three points for the match.

Kamry Breard led the Bombers with 15 kills, 19 assists and 11 digs, while Lexi Lacey had nine kills and McKenna Cullen five blocks.

Leanna Shymanski led Kamiakin (5-3) with 11 kills and five blocks, while Kennedy Sarver ahd 44 assists.

Set scores: Richland 23-25, 25-20, 25-23, 25-22. Richland: Sarah Howlett 8K, 3B; Lexi Lacey 9K, 6 digs; Lindsay Rosenthal 8K, 5 digs, 2B, 3 aces; Alaina Lacey 12 digs, 2 aces; McKenna Cullen 2K, 5 B; Taylor Moody 27 assts, 11 digs, 5 aces; Savannah Haynie 2K, 1B; Kamry Breard 15K, 19 assts, 11 digs, 4 aces; Madelaine Haynie 2K, 2B; Siena Becker 3 digs. Kamiakin: Leanna Shymanski 11 kills, 5 blocks; Madison Judy 12 kills; Jill Sands 10 kills, 11 digs; Kennedy Sarver 44 assists, 15 digs; Raegan Bishop 18 digs, 3 aces; Carlee Rowell 14-14 serves, 2 blocks; Brianna Esvelt 14-14 serves.

Selah 3, Prosser 1: Shay Hicks and Hannah Lind combined for 16 kills and 34 digs to lead the Mustangs, who dropped a CWAC match to the Vikings.

Prep’s victory helped ease the pain of losing its leading hitter, Katie McDonald, to a torn ACL on Tuesday in practice.

Set scores: TC 25-17, 22-25, 25-21, 27-25. TCP: Danika Whitsett 26-26 serving, 9 aces, 46 assists; Katie Casazza 19 kills; Hannah Jilek 14 kills, 20 digs; Lauryn Green 12 kills; Mary Seiner 39 digs; Gabriela Ramirez 20 digs.
