Prep highlights: Skyview volleyball rebounds to sweep Union


The Skyview volleyball team came into the season with goals of competing for a league title and possibly returning to the state tournament.

And that’s why the Storm’s loss to Columbia River in Monday’s season opener was a bit disappointing.

“We had a tough loss to River,” senior Tyra Schaub said. “A very good game. Good players on both teams. We just brought that energy off that loss into this game.”

With the Gonzaga-bound Schaub contributing 13 digs, 21 kills one ace and two assists, the Storm bounced back for a 3-0 win over Union on Thursday, 25-10, 25-15, 25-14.

The Storm used the energy from the Skyview students in the stands.

“It was just so nice having our fans back, seeing my family up there,” she said. “They aren’t watching some live stream from home.”

Senior Kaden Thomas added seven kills, six digs, four aces and two blocks and senior Avalon Watkins had eight digs and 22 assists.
