TURNER — Cascade overcame a Game 1 loss to defeat Astoria in nonleague volleyball action Thursday, 20-25, 25-20, 25-17, 25-20.
Still, “it’s the best I’ve seen us play,” said Astoria coach Jessie Todd. “We came out early in each game in ‘attack mode.’ Cascade has some intelligent hitters, but I really thought we were equal.”
Chelsea Christensen had 30 digs for Astoria, while Madi Landwehr (12 kills) and Darian Hageman (eight kills) sparked the Lady Fishermen offense.
Elsewhere, Hailey O’Brien and Kes Sandstrom each had three ace serves, and Hageman added five blocks.
Astoria goes right back to Cascade for a tournament Saturday, before beginning Cowapa League play Tuesday.
