NORTH POWDER, Ore. - Weston-McEwen lost its volleyball opener to Powder Valley Thursday night, dropping in straight sets, 25-19, 25-18 and 25-20.
"Powder Valley's good," said Weston-McEwen coach Shawn White of the Class 1A-7 Old Oregon League opponent. "They're an outstanding team and they have a couple of very good hitters and good setters. They played well."
Molly von Borstel led the team with six kills. Morgan Enzte had 11 assists and five kills, McKayla Carlin had 16 digs, Katy West had four kills and three blocks, and McKenzie Fuhrman was 15-of-15 from the serving line with an ace.
White was pleased with the match and said it was a good starting point for the TigerScots, who won the state 2A title last year.
"We definitely have a lot of little things to work on and this was definitely the first match of the year for us," White said. "Overall, we saw some really good things. Powder Valley is just ahead of us in skill development. We'll get better."
The TigerScots travel to the Hermiston Tournament on Saturday. They'll be the smallest school there, White said.
"Thursday was a good day for us to get the kinks out. We'll sure look better by Saturday."
