RIDGEFIELD - It was close all the way, but Ridgefield defeated the Lady Fishermen volleyball team three tightly played games to one there Thursday. "We played Ridgefield tough," a pleased Coach Grant Chinn said of his girl's efforts.

"The first time we played them they beat us badly the first two games and swept us 3-0. We definitely have improved." One reason Ilwaco played well was they didn't let the crowd, the band, or as some observers said, questionable officiating deter them from competing well.
