ILWACO - For the first 30 points on senior night the Lady Fishermen were as good or better than any volleyball team in the Trico League. Seniors Melany Bliss, Erin McDonnell and Courtney Gilgore and Theresa Goodwin, Alexa Wirkkala, Kate Denton, Charlotte Johnson, and Marin McDonnell seemed to be everywhere at once against league king pin Stevenson.

Gilgore was digging the Lady Bulldog's best blasts; Bliss and Erin McDonnell were pounding spikes with powerful precision, Johnson was setting Wirkkala and Marin McDonnell, and Denton and Goodwin were passing with pinpoint accuracy. Without missing a serve, Ilwaco fashioned a 17-13 lead over the top team in the league and doing it with a verve to match the raucous crowd at Aase Gymnasium.
