IRRIGON, Ore. - Weston-McEwen swept through Elgin at the district tournament Saturday, nabbing the District championship and several individual honors, as well as the Oregon volleyball Official's Sportsmanship award.

The TigerScots (26-2) defeated Elgin in three, 25-15, 25-13, 25-12.

"Every girl on the team played well," said coach Shawn White. "It was outstanding."

Renee Baumann was selected Oregon Player of the Year and backed that title up with 15 digs and 16 kills.

Morgan Entze led the TigerScots with 17 assists and seven blocks and nabbed first-team all-league honors.

Tiffany Cain contributed 14 digs and 13 kills and was 24-of-24 in serving to join Entze on the first all-league team.

Jordan Reger has 13 assists, Katy West had seven blocks, Jaymie Zimmerman was 10-for-11 serving with an ace, Haley Freske knocked in seven kills and made five blocks, Molly bon Borstel had a kill and three blocks, LeAnne Harnden had 10 digs and MacKayla Carlin had four digs.

Freske and Harnden were both all-league honorable mention players.

"We had to wait until the very end to play and it went well," White said. "It went quick. Literally all of the girls on the team had a good day. It was a great week of practice and they really came through with flying colors tonight."

The TigerScots are off for a week before the first round of state Saturday in Athena. Their opponent will be determined Wednesday and they likely play at 7 p.m., although it has not yet been decided.

"For the most part I'm just tickled with how well the girls have improved over the last four weeks," he said. "We've had steady progress every week since our last home match and it's just delightful."
