Riverhawks Snap 7-Match Losing Streak


After dropping the first set, Toledo blasted back to win the next three in a row to defeat Morton-White Pass 21-25, 25-22, 25-23, 25-22, on the road Thursday and end a seven-match losing skid.

“Finally getting a win tonight was great,” Toledo coach Brianna Klingberg said. “It was what these girls needed to finish out the season strong. It was so nice to see all the hard work come together and show out on the court. I’m really proud of my girls tonight.”

Brynn Williams led the Riverhawks with a match-high 25 assists to go with two kills, eight digs and three aces. Aleena Bloomstrom added seven kills, six digs and one ace. Jordynne Hensley contributed six kills, three aces and a block, while Eden Jones had nine kills and two blocks and Lyndzie Filla had 12 digs and four aces.

Also contributing were Bethany Bowen with two assists and three kills, Stefa Arceo-Hansen with four kills, three digs and two aces and Whitney Olson pitched in two aces.

Morton-White Pass was led by Chloe Kelly’s 14 assists and three kills, while Emarey Hampton added five kills and was 12 for 12 serving. Shelby Karns had five kills and two blocks, and Abigail Sympson was a perfect 29 for 29 serving with five aces.

“All the games were really close, we just couldn’t seem to finish them off,” MWP coach Tammy Kelly said. “Abigail served really well for us and every time she came into the game to serve, she gave us a little spark. Emarey continues to pass well for us. She is playing some really good defense right now.”

MWP (3-12, 1-7 league) travels to Onalaska on Monday. Toledo (4-8, 1-7 league) hosts Winlock on Monday.
