Catch some great volleyball Saturday in Auburn

First of all, I need to let you know that I am likely not going to have time to blog the volleyball highlights from Thursday — sorry.

I’ve got a jam-packed schedule today, and I will be covering a football game tonight. The highlights take a good chunk of time, and unfortunately I just don’t have it today.

But I do want to make note of Roosevel upset victory over No. 5 Snohomish, and a couple of other matches involving ranked teams.

The 3-0 Roosevelt score surprised me in part because the Roughriders lost 3-0 to Rogers earlier this week. Then Rogers lost to Gig Harbor, which was swept by third-ranked Bellarmine Prep Thursday.

Roosevelt coach Azure DeMeules said her team played very aggressive against Snohomish — something they didn’t do in the Rogers match. After giving up six straight points in the second set to trail Snohomish 17-10, the Roughriders rallied to win 26-24. They held the Panthers off in the third, 25-23.

Katrina Lane led the way with 11 kills and twin Kristen had 9. Sierra Schomburg tallied 30 assists. We didn’t get any highlights from Snohomish. DeMeules said that while star Lanesha Reagan is very good, she didn’t get many chances.

Snohomish coach Alex Tarin said his girls didn’t come to play and passed very poorly. He called the match “a good wake-up call” heading into Saturday’s Puget Sound Adidas Invitational at Auburn Mountainview (more on that later).

Here are some other Thursday scores involving ranked teams:

Tumwater (No. 3 in 2A) over Curtis (No. 10 in 4A), 3-0

Mount Si (No. 2 in 3A) over Juanita, 3-0

Mercer Island (No. 6 in 3A) over Lake Washington, 3-0

Holy Names (No. 3 in 3A) over Mount Rainier, 3-0

Glacier Peak (No. 8 in 3) over Everett, 3-1

Now, about that Adidas Invitational, I will be there and you should be, too, if you want to see some great volleyball.

The field features four other ranked teams besides Snohomish, including Prairie, which sits at No. 1 in 3A, and Tumwater. Seattle Prep (No. 9 in 3A) is also there along with Burlington-Edision, the defending tourney champion that went on to win the 2A state title and is currently ranked No. 6.

You can find the complete list of teams, and other tourney information, here.

On the other side of the state, the place to be is the SunDome Volleyball Festival, which is where you’ll find Glacier Peak. The favorites are the teams ranked 1-2 in Class 2A — West Valley of Yakima (which dropped down after winning the 3A state crown last season) and Selah (a perennial power).

Check out the website for that tournament here.
