CLASS 1B: Pomeroy, Colton to meet in semis

YAKIMA - The Pomeroy Pirates and Colton Wildcats both opened the Washington Class 1B state volleyball tournament with two victories Thursday at the SunDome.

And their prize? The Southeast 1B League rivals will square off in the semifinals at 9:45 this morning.

Pomeroy knocked off Rainier Christian in three sets with the scores being 25-10, 25-11, 25-17.

Heading into the quarterfinals of the tournament, the Pirates had a big task going up against undefeated Almira-Coulee-Hartline.

"That game could've went either way, both teams played really well, it looked more like a state finals game rather than a quarterfinal game," Pomeroy coach Jim Greene said of the atmosphere.

Stat leaders on the day for the Pirates included Sydney Smith who had 31 assists, 25 digs as well as 11 kills. Carmen Gingerich also had a big day, racking up 30 kills for the Pirates.

In the quarterfinals, the Wildcats again had little to worry about, beating Sunnyside Christian by the scores of 25-20, 25-14, 25-14.

Some stat leaders for the Wildcats were Jordyn Moehrle with 16 kills as well as 32 digs and Emily Schultheis was able to get 13 kills, nine digs, nine aces and 11 blocks.

Colton coach Kelli Dahmen was focused on what's going to help her team defeat Pomeroy in the semifinals.

"We split with them during the season, and it's going to be tough and challenging, but if the girls work together and focus, I think we have a very good chance," Dahmen said.
