The Lions make their return to state a successful one, beating Jesuit on Friday

The West Linn volleyball team had been waiting for this one a long time.

But after waiting three years to get back to the Class 6A state tournament, the Lions made it worth that wait, beating Jesuit 21-25, 25-17, 27-25, 17-25, 15-13 in the state quarterfinals at Liberty High School.

The Lions face Southridge in the state semifinals at 6:30 p.m. tonight (Friday) at Liberty; the winner will advance to the state championship match at 6:30 p.m. Saturday; tonight's loser will play for third place at noon Saturday.
