Canby volleyball sweeps Tigard, St. Mary's
Playing two teams at the bottom of the Three Rivers League standings, Canby took care of business last week.
At home, the Cougars defeated Tigard 3-0 (25-19, 25-21, 25-15) on Tuesday.
"We started off slow, but then I felt like we out ball handled them, so we took care of business, which is what we need to do," Canby coach T.J. Schlatter said." Against a team like that, sometimes it's hard to not drop down to that level. I thought they did really well with what they had. They just didn't have the same fire power that we do."
Outside hitter Daley McClellan had 20 kills, two blocks and an ace against Tigard.
Setter Ruby Kayser had four kills, four aces and 20 assists.
In the middle, Karly Bierma recorded nine kills and a block. Natalie Doman added four kills and a block.
"We ran our middles a little bit more than we have been so Karly and Natlie both were a little bit more effective," Schlatter said. "That was good because we have to be able to start doing that."
Melissa Guijosa Mondragon had 16 assists and Danielle Netter added six assists.
"I was able to get some time for some other kids and try to get everybody comfortable so if at any point we have to call on them, they're ready to go," Schlatter said.
The Cougars then defeated St. Mary's Academy 3-0 (27-25, 25-15, 25-14) on Thursday.
McClellan had 23 kills. Kayser recorded 19 assists.
"They're so scrappy and they play really, really hard," Schlatter said of the Blues.
