ATHENA - Top-ranked Weston-McEwen made quick work of Nestucca during the opening round of the Oregon Class 2A state volleyball playoffs here Saturday night.
The TigerScots improved to 27-2 on the season after a 25-7, 25-12, 25-13 triumph.
"The ladies played very well," W-M head coach Shawn White said. "The speed of the game got away from them a little bit. We played well and consistent throughout. Our defense was good all night."
Weston-McEwen will continue its quest for a state title when it opposes Bonanza (19-5) Friday afternoon at 1:15 in a state quarterfinal match at Pacific University in Forest Grove.
TigerScot statistical leaders were Morgan Entze with 16-of-16 serving, 14 assists, and four kills; Jordan Reger with 14 assists; Tiffany Cain with 15 kills, seven digs, and 18-of-18 serving with six aces; Renee Baumann with 14 digs, eight kills, and a 24-of-24 showing from the serving line with five aces.

Jaymie Zimmerman, Molly Von Borstel, and McKayla Carlin were also cited by White for on-court contributions.
"They stepped in and were aggressive," White said. "They were very important players. They touched a lot of balls for us."
