Firm Foundation volleyball places 5th at 1B state

By , Columbian Staff Writer

Firm Foundation volleyball left the Yakima SunDome with hardware on Friday.

The Eagles won both games in three sets — first against Providence Classic Christian, then Puget Sound Adventist — to claim fifth place at the 1B state volleyball tournament.

“It’s great,” Firm Foundation coach John Stevens said. “We wanted to get in the trophy round, but to be 3-1 at state and we went to the winner’s bracket to get there … just a lot of fun.”

Firm Foundation beat Providence 25-20, 25-10, 25-19 then Puget Sound Adventist 25-20, 25-22, 25-16 in the fifth place game on Friday afternoon.

Both matches featured a pair of sluggish starts from the Eagles. But despite playing from behind for much of the day, they marched back.

The latter match was a defensive gridlock.

Brooklyn Warren led the way with 10 digs and 18 assists, Katie Rommel had four kills and five blocks and Katie Kogler finished with two aces, 16 digs, 12 kills and nine blocks for the Eagles.

“They would get so much off the ground, a three set match was incredibly long,” Stevens said. “Our girls stepped up on defense and met our match.”
