Unfortunately, we were not able to send reporters to the state volleyball tournaments in Class 2A, 1A, 2B or 1B.
Again, for complete results, please check the brackets here.
Top-rankled Tumwater beat No. 3 North Kitsap 3-0 in the 2A championship match. But, boy, where the Thunderbirds pushed to the limit before that. They had to go five sets against both No. 7 Archbishop Murphy and No. 4 Selah in the quarterfinals and semifinals, respectively.
NK had knocked off No. 2 Sehome in the semis, 3-1. Selah wound up taking third and Sehome fourth.
Archbishop Murphy fell just short of earning a trophy. After that marathon against Tumwater, which didn’t finish until after midnight, the Wildcats lost the next day against No. 8 Burlington-Edison, the 2013 champion and team they knocked off in the district semifinals.
B-E wound, which lost in the quarterfinals to Selah, wound up fifth and Fife was a solid sixth. No. 10 Liberty of Renton took home the eighth-place trophy with a final loss to fifth-ranked East Valley of Spoke, which won three straight after losing to Woodland in the opening round.
A big shout-out locally to King’s, which reached the 1A championship match before losing to Lynden Christian. King’s upset Cedar Park Christian in the semifinals. Cedar Park bounced back to place third with surprising Bellevue Christian fourth.
In 2B, Colfax beat Wahkiakum in the final, while Pomeroy won the 1B title over Almira-Coulee-Hartline. Christian Faith of Federal Way took home the third-place trophy.
And that’s a wrap on state volleyball for 2014.
