It took a set for Squalicum’s volleyball team to settle in, but once the jitters passed, the Storm beat Roosevelt 3-1 on Friday during the Class 3A State Tournament at the Toyota Center in Kennewick.
“It’s something we were hoping wasn’t going to happen,” coach Joe Amaral said. “I just let them work through it, and once we cleaned that up and played our game, we were a lot better.”
The Storm took the match 20-25, 25-15, 25-18, 25-20.
Squalicum turned missed serves into aces the rest of the match as senior Gwen Schorr led the way with five and also had four kills and 21 digs. Emma Schroder had a double-double with 15 kills and 15 digs. Libero Alyssa Dickerson had 22 digs, and Chalae Wolters finished with five kills and five blocks.
The Storm dropped its next match 3-0 to Mount Spokane, 25-23, 25-19, 25-18. No other information was available at press time.
