The Astoria volleyball team, following their win in the Marshfield tournament.

The next tournament for the Astoria volleyball team will likely be the state tournament, and the Lady Fishermen warmed up for the post-season by winning their third tournament of the regular season.

Astoria defeated North Bend, Marshfield and Junction City in the championship bracket to win the Marshfield tournament Saturday.

“It was a really great day,” said Astoria coach Jessie Todd. “The girls played with a lot of heart and fire.”

The Fishermen swept all three opponents in the final bracket, defeating North Bend (25-13, 25-18), Marshfield (25-21, 25-15) and Junction City (26-24, 25-18) in the championship match.

Astoria, rated No. 3 in the latest OSAA state rankings, finishes the regular season Tuesday against No. 1-ranked Valley Catholic, in a possible preview of the state championship.
