Tahoma Volleyball reaches best finish in school history

November 13, 2017 Leave a comment Go to comments

Volleyball finished 5th in the state out of 64 4A teams this past weekend. This is a record high finish for Tahoma in that classification.

Overall it was a great tournament. Despite a rocky preseason the team really started playing together as a cohesive unit during league play and on through the state tournament. And it definitely showed. The first day of play at state we defeated Jackson 3-1 then faced Curtis and lost 1-3. Returning on Saturday they defeated Kennedy Catholic 3-2 and finally fought hard against Puyallup and won 3-2. Senior Emily Smith was picked to represent Tahoma on the state All-tournament team.

Other accomplishments this season included: The team ended up having an undefeated league season and finished 1st place in the NPSL Cascade Division. We finished 2nd overall in the NPSL and took a 3rd seed from our District III tournament into state. Emily Smith, Patience O’Neal and Paige Anthony were named to the 1st team roster for the NPSL Cascade Division. Kennedy Kibby, Chey Jones, McKenna Peters and Kaia Garcia were all noted on the Honorable mention list. The Tacoma News Tribune also named Emily Smith and Patience O’Neal to the All-Area second team.
