Mead comeback ends Curtis title bid

It was looking so good for the Curtis volleyball team.

The Vikings took the first two sets off top-ranked Mead of Spokane in the 4A state championship match and led 20-12 in the third.

But the Panthers clawed back and pulled out the 3-2 victory to win their sixth title in seven years as 6-foot-5 Alexis Olgard pounded 33 kills.

It’s still the best-ever finish by Curtis, the only team to take a set off Mead in this tournament.

I’ve got jump over and write my story, so you can read more about it on the web later, or in the paper tomorrow morning.

Issaquah finished fifth with a 3-0 win over Jackson, which takes eighth. The other trophy games are in progress. Check back for those winners.

The first two 3A quarterfinals are also underway and I’ll post those results a bit later, too.

Congratulations to both Mead and Curtis. It was a whale of a match.
