Prep highlights: River volleyball in control of 3A GSHL after sweep of Prairie



The Columbia River volleyball team took firm control of the Class 3A Greater St. Helens League with another straight-set win over Prairie.

Evi Wilson had 14 kills, eight digs and four aces to lead River to a 25-16, 25-19, 25-17 win over Prairie on Tuesday.

The win gave the Chieftains a two-match advantage over Prairie in the loss column and a head-to-head sweep over the Falcons.

A win Thursday over last-place Fort Vancouver would give River at least a share of the league title and clinch the No. 1 seed to the district tournament.

Esti Wilson had eight digs, five kills and two aces for River, while Page Heller added 30 assists, seven digs, two aces, two kills and two blocks.

2A district golf

Hockinson’s Diego De La Torre shot a 2-under-par 70 to take a two-shot lead at the Class 2A district tournament in Chehalis.

De La Torre was one of six Hawks to make the first-day cut at Riverside Golf Course.

Ridgefield, led by Spencer Konkright’s 83, had five players make the cut, and Washougal, led by Bryce Samwel’s 82, had two.
