Astoria sweeps Scappoose

Astoria tuned up for its big Cowapa League match Thursday at Tillamook with an easy three-game sweep over Scappoose, 25-6, 25-16, 25-13, Tuesday at the Brick House.

The Fishermen extended their league win streak to nine straight, and seven in a row by three-game sweeps.

Meredith Barnes got the Fishermen off to a good start Tuesday, as she served 12 consecutive points in Game 1.

Barnes finished with five kills and four ace serves, while Sophie DeWitt added 15 kills and three aces. Hilary O'Bryan, stepping in for Kristen Saulsbury, had four kills, and Kayce Lilley had a team-high 13 assists.

Tillamook def. Seaside

SEASIDE - The Seaside volleyball team nearly pulled off its biggest victory of the season Tuesday, as the Gulls stepped up and took Tillamook to a fifth game before the Lady Mooks finally prevailed, 23-25, 15-25, 25-12, 25-11, 15-7.

"We had Tillamook where we wanted them - two games down and we are playing great," said Seaside coach Mitch Ward.

"Tillamook picked their game up and ours went down, and that was it," he said. "Momentum is huge in volleyball, and we let it slip from our grasp and never got it back. That was a hard way to lose."

Knappa def. Portland Lutheran

PORTLAND - The Knappa Loggers celebrated their first win of the 2007 season Tuesday night, as they cruised past Portland Lutheran in three games, 25-19, 25-11, 25-19.

"We switched some girls up and just tried some new ways of doing things," said Knappa coach Bob Harn. "I don't know if it worked or not, but we won."

The Loggers were sparked by the all-around game of Christina Kaul, while the entire team had a strong night at the service line.

Jewell sweeps Country

JEWELL - Jewell honored their two seniors with another three-game sweep Tuesday night, as the Jays beat Country Christian 25-13, 25-17, 25-14 in a Casco League match.

And the seniors sparked Jewell to the win, as Jalina Johnston led the team in digs and Amanda DePonte had several kills in the victory. Amber Meier had the setting duties for Jewell, which improved to 11-1, tied with St. Paul for first place.

Should the two teams finish in a tie, there will be a one-match tie-breaker, next Thursday at Jewell. The Jays will also host the District tournament, Saturday, Oct. 27.
