Beavers Drop Tight Match to Ocosta in Four


Playing in front of its home fans, the Tenino volleyball team fell in four tight sets to Ocosta, 25-16, 19-25, 25-22, 25-18, Tuesday night. 

The Beavers dropped the first set, but battled back to take the second and make games of each of the final two sets, but came up just short against the Wildcats. 

“We learned a lot tonight and the competition is fierce from here on out, so every day we have to compete and that includes practice time,” Beavers coach Shauna Carpenter said. “We started this year with a definite divide in skill levels, and that isn’t there anymore. Every day they have to compete for their spots, and it just makes them better.”

The Beavers will look to bounce back against Hoquiam in a league matchup on Thursday at home.
