Cascade able to split season volleyball series with Philomath

Since falling to Philomath early this season, the Cascade High volleyball team has been on a roll. The Cougars haven’t lost in the Oregon West Conference since with six straight victories, the latest coming on Thursday night over the Warriors as teams begin a second trip through league play.

Cascade (12-2 overall, 6-1 Oregon West) won the match, 25-22, 25-14, 25-17.

“Lots of work to do … we had an off night tonight for sure,” PHS coach Denee Newton said. “I told the girls it’s OK if this hurts a bit and that now they have to decide how we move forward from here to meet our goals.”

The Warriors (5-6, 4-3) will come home to play two matches next week. Philomath hosts Sweet Home on Tuesday and Woodburn on Thursday. Both of those contests are scheduled for 6 p.m. starts.

The Mt. Hood Classic that had been scheduled for Saturday was canceled.

Against the Cougars, Ashlynn Barron had a team-high 10 kills and Sage Kramer finished with eight. Reagan Larson recorded 21 assists and also had two aces. Defensively, Kramer had a team-high 12 digs. Ahnika Tryon had three solo blocks.
