A quick look at Thursday’s top high-school volleyball results

While my goal is to blog volleyball highlights Tuesday through Friday, based on matches reported to The Times the previous night, it is apparent I am not always able to find the time.

Such was the case Thursday, and I am in a similar boat today, getting ready to head outto another football game.

So, I will blog them when I can.

For now, I just want to acknowledge some key contests that were played Thursday, particularly those involving ranked teams.

Mount Si — the No. 1 team in 3A — rolled past Sammamish, 3-0, behind the efforts of Anna McCreadie (11 kills) and Lindsay Carr (10).

No. 3 Mercer Island also won in straight sets over Interlake with Sara Lindquist smashing 15 kills.

Bothell tripped up Eastside Catholic, 3-2, behind the 20 kills and 14 digs from Katie Arneson. The Crusaders are ranked No. 5 in Class 3A, while Bothell is unranked in 4A.

In the one 4A match involving two ranked teams, No. 9 Curtis topped No. 8 Kentwood, 3-1. Sophie VanEssen led the way with 12 kills.

Puyallup, No. 5 in 4A, swept Kentridge with Braylie Jeffers contributing 15 kills and 4 blocks.

Glacier Peak made a bid to return to the 3A rankings with a 3-1 victory over Snohomish, which is currently No. 10 in 4A but likely to drop out next week. Maddi Ober (18 kills) and Ruby Mensing (12) led the way. The Panthers lost despite a big night by Lanesha Reagan (33 kills, 15 digs).

Fife, No. 10 in 2A, blanked Clover Park as Eva Linden put together 10 assists and 6 kills.

One match we had on our schedule that we didn’t get results from was Holy Names (No. 2 in 3A) at Newport (No. 6 in 4A). I’m not sure if it was even played or not, so if anyone knows please chime in.

I’ll be anxious to hear how Jackson — No. 1 in 4A and No. 17 nationally — fares this weekend in that big Durango Classic in Las Vegas.

Check back Monday afternoon for the latest rankings.
