State 2A Volleyball Schedule

It will be a ridiculously early wake-up call for the Bulldogs Friday at the tournament in the SunDome as Ellensburg faces White River in a first-round match at 7AM. Ephrata’s first match pits them against Anacortes at 8:45.

State 4A Volleyball Schedule

You have to go back to 1983 to find the last time Wenatchee brought hardware back from the State Volleyball Tournament. Of course, that was a State Title and is one of just three volleyball trophies in the case for the Panthers.

Marni McMahon will try to add to that this week when her team heads for Yakima Friday. That’s when the 6th-seeded Panthers will take on 11th-seed Mount Rainier at 8:45am. The bracketing puts Wenatchee in a second-round game against either West Valley or Lake Stevens.
