A State Title is no longer on the table for the Wenatchee Panthers volleyball team…

State 4A Volleyball Scoreboard

Wenatchee dropped a gut-wrenching loss to Mount Rainier this morning. The Panthers jumped out on top, winning the first two sets 25-21 and 25-23. But then the Rams came back to win the next two 25-19 and 29-27. So it came down to a 5th and deciding set, which Mount Rainier won 15-12.

That will put Wenatchee into the loser’s bracket with a match at 5:45 against Lake Stevens. West Valley defeated the Eagles 3-2 to advance.

Coach Marni McMahon says she has a busy itinerary for the girls to follow to prepare for their second match…
