Shorecrest fighting for volleyball tournament bid in final home match Wednesday

Tuesday, October 23, 2012

The Shorecrest volleyball team finishes its regular season with a Wednesday home match with Mountlake Terrace in a meeting that would give the winner a chance to advance to the Northwest District 3A tournament.

The Scots and Hawks are tied for fourth in the Western Conference 4A South with 1-6 division records. Shorecrest lost at Mountlake Terrace early in the season but later pulled into a tie with a victory over Glacier Peak.

The top three teams in the Wesco 3A North and South divisions qualify for the eight-team District tournament, along with two teams from among the No. 4 teams from the two Wesco divisions and Ferndale of the Northwest 3A/2A/1A Conference, with the top two based on league records.
Since Ferndale had a 4-7 Northwest Conference record going into a final NWC match with Bellingham, Ferndale will get one of the District berths.

The winner of the Shorecrest match with Mountlake Terrace will have a 2-6 Wesco South record. If Wesco 3A North No. 4 Marysville-Pilchuck loses its final match at Oak Harbor Wednesday, the Tomahawks also would have a 2-6 record.

In basketball or soccer, in which teams play the teams in their own division twice and teams in the other division once, Shorecrest's early-season loss to Marysville-Pilchuck would act as a tiebreaker, but since the match was non-league, a Shorecrest victory and Marysville-Pilchuck loss may lead to a playoff for the last tournament spot.

The District tournament opens Oct. 30, with play at Glacier Peak and Marysvillle-Pilchuck high sdhools. It continues Nov. 1 at Glacier Peak. The top three teams in the District qualify for the State tournament Nov. 9-10 at Saint Martin's University and Timberline High School both in Lacy, north of Olympia.

Shorecrest takes a 3-10 overall record into the match with Mountlake Terrace (7-6) at 7 p.m. Wednesday at Shorecrest High School. Junior-varsity and C-team matches are scheduled for 5:15.

The Shorecrest varsity is coming off a 3-0 loss to Shorewood Oct. 17.

In Shorecrest’s loss at Shorewood, Shorewood won by game scores of 25-20, 25-9 and 25-21. Stephanie Taylor had 8 kills for the Scots; teammate Diana Conwell had 7 kills; Lauren Rutter had 19 assists; and Clarisse Haines had 11 digs. For Shorewood, Stephanie Vollbrecht had 7 kills, 3 blocks and 3 aces; Monica Postor had 7 kills; 14 digs and 3 aces; and Marianne Kellogg had 19 assists.

The Scot junior varsity has a 0-7 Wesco 3A south record (2-11 overall) after a 3-0 loss to Shorewood last week.

The Shorecrest "C" team has a 1-6 Wesco 3A South record (2-11 overall) after a 2-1 victory over Shorewood.
