TONASKET – The Tonasket girls’ volleyball team lost one game and won one game last week.


On Tuesday, Oct. 21, the Tigers traveled down to Okanogan where they lost the match after three sets of 25-22, 25-16 and 25-12. Junior April Webber made seven of seven serves and had three kills, senior Amber Allen made 11 of 12 serves with three aces and six kills and senior Cierra Silvethorn made six of seven serves with seven kills.


On Thursday, Oct. 23, the Tigers played at home against Omak winning after three sets of 25-19, 25-16 and 25-19. Senior Jessica Kitterman made 26 of 27 serves with seven aces and three kills, junior Falisha Laurie made nine of ten serves with four kills, Webber made 10 of 12 serves with four kills, sophomore Jessica Rhoads made seven of seven serves, Silverthorn made six of seven serves with eight kills, and Allen had nine kills.


“Good defensive plays, good serving and great team play were the keys to our win,” Nellie Kirk, head coach, said. “The team wanted to win and played together to get the victory.”


The Tigers, now 6-7 in league, will play their first district game on Saturday, Nov. 1 at Okanogan High School at 10 a.m.


“I think Tonasket will be the number five team in league and they will play the loser of the Brewster-Okanogan game tonight at 11 a.m. on Saturday,” Steve Chamberlin, Okanogan High School athletic director, said. “If Tonasket wins, they’ll play the number one seeded team, which is Cascade, at three p.m.”
