MWP Stays Consistent To Scrap By Rainier


Morton-White Pass was able to rally past Rainier for the second time this season, beating the Mountaineers in four sets Thursday, 25-15, 20-25, 25-17, 25-18. 

“We played more consistent tonight,” Timberwolves coach Tammy Kelly said. “The second game we had a little trouble getting anything going but the girls bounced back and finished strong.”

Chloe Kelly led the way from the setter spot, dishing out 14 assists with four kills, while Emarey Hampton recorded a team-high 10 kills. Maddie Clevenger wasn’t far behind with five kills of her own, and Abigail Sympson was a perfect 20 for 20 serving. 

Kelly gave credit to back row teammates Natalia Armstrong and Amy Martinez for passing well in serve receive and on defense in the win. 

The Timberwolves take on Eatonville on Saturday next on the road, while Rainier looks to gain some footing this season against Winlock on Tuesday.
