Fillies earn sweep at Oroville

OROVILLE – Oroville’s volleyball team fell in its first home Central Washington League match of the season on Tuesday, Oct. 2, 25-15, 25-18, 25-19.

“The girls just couldn’t get their groove started in this game,” said Oroville coach Stacey Hinze.

The Hornets stayed close in the opening set, but after tying it at 11-11 saw the Fillies finish with a 15-4 run. Oroville came back from a 23-11 deficit in the second set to pull within 24-18 before going down, and in the third set were within one before the Fillies finished on a 7-1 run to win it. 

“This was not our best game,” Hinze said. “But it was definitely a learning experience and it has helped us step up our game.”

The Hornets (0-8, 0-2 CWL) travel to Entiat for a non-league contest on Saturday, Oct. 6.

Stats: Whitney Rounds 16 digs, Rachelle Nutt 12 digs.
