Weston-McEwen slices through duel meet


ATHENA — It was business as usual for Weston-McEwen Thursday night.

The TigerScots rolled to a pair of dominating 3-set victories in a non-league dual meet with Riverside and Helix, and it didn’t really phase W-M coach Shawn White.

“It was a solid night,” White said. “Our ball control was good. They played with good focus tonight.”

The TigerScots (4-1) defeated Class 3A Riverside 25-9, 25-10 and 25-16.

W-M continued with 25-10, 25-8 and 25-9 wins over Helix.

“You always look for, regardless of the score, how well you play on the court,” White said. “Our ball control was really improved and I was impressed with how we were hitting the ball team-wide, so I was really pleased today.”

Junior Molly von Borstel led the way with 16 kills, seven aces and a 31-for-31 effort at the service stripe over both victories.

“She served tougher today,” White said of von Borstel. “We’ve been after her to step her game up. Obviously we depend on her for a lot, and she stepped her game up and she continues to improve in all areas.”

Setter Taryn Coffman assisted 44 points and scored six aces in the wins.

McKayla Carlin had eight digs and a pair of kills; Lacey Kuehn smashed seven kills; Keegan Shepard had 10 kills, and Melanie Sederburg had 13 kills.

Marlene Bodmer contributed four kills and two blocks.

Danni Dearing had three digs and two aces. Melina Baker had a dig with four aces.

Natalie Arnold had two digs, four aces and was 23-for-23 in service.

The TigerScots open pool play at the Heppner Tournment Saturday at 9 a.m.
