T-Birds Cage Bobcats in Sweep


Alyssa Duncan registered a match-high 12 kills and seven blocks and Tumwater had no trouble fending off visiting Aberdeen for a sweep (25-17, 25-11, 25-9) on Tuesday night in 2A Evergreen Conference play.

Bella Burney added six kills and three blocks, while Cassie Gilson had a team-high four aces on a night where the T-Birds were hosting a Cure for the Dig fundraiser.

“We got off to a slow start,” Tumwater coach Jordan Stray said. “It’s only our third home game so we’re still getting in the groove of playing in front of our own fans. But once we got into rhythm, we played well.”

Tumwater (6-1, 4-0 league) travels to North Thurston on Wednesday, then heads to Rochester for league play on Monday.
