The Lady Loggers volleyball team made great strides from their 9-12 2005 record and nearly advanced to the 2B/1A state tournament.
Darrington finished the regular season in a second-place tie and after defeating Christian Faith 3-1 lost to Evergreen Lutheran and Shoreline Christian in the semi-finals to end their season.
The Lady Loggers finished their 2006 campaign with a 13-11 overall record.
Saturday, Nov. 4, Shoreline Christian swept Darrington 3-0 at Edmonds-Woodway High School. Game scores were 25-22, 25-20 and 25-14.
Coach Greg Powell said Shoreline Christian seemed to have his teams number all season.
We just didnt seem to have the energy and heart left to get it done against Shoreline, Powell said.
Darrington fell to Evergreen Lutheran earlier in the afternoon 3-0. Game scores were 25-12, 25-16 and 25-21.
We had beaten EvLu the week before at our tournament, but they played much better this time. We didnt have answers for their height and net power.
The Lady Loggers began the District tournament on a winning note by defeating Christian Faith, 3-1, Friday, Nov. 3.
Game scores were 25-23, 25-16, 23-25 and 25-22.
Senior Kristy Turner had five kills in the winning effort and nailed a deep baseline floating serve to end the match.
Sophomore Mandy Powell had 33 assists, three kills, 11 digs and a perfect 8-for-8 serving.
Junior Maggie Wicken contributed 10 kills and two blocks.
Senior Jill Frable had 10 kills, two blocks and two aces.
Im really happy for the three seniors (Jill Frable, Kristy Turner and Kylie Thompson), that they were able to feel the excitement of the post-season, and being in the hunt for a state tournament berth, coach Powell said. They all had outstanding seasons.
