Reedsport’s volleyball team topped visiting Myrtle Point 25-16, 25-14, 25-8 Wednesday to stay in second place in the Sunset Conference race.
Divinity Farris had five aces and two digs in the win. Makenzie Seeley had 10 assists, three aces and two kills. Paige Hausmann-Noel, one of five seniors honored before their final regular-season home match, had five kills, two aces and one dig.
Reedsport improved to 8-2 in league play, their record one match better than they earlier thought since Bandon had to forfeit its win over the Brave for accidentally using a player in too many sets between the junior varsity and varsity matches.
Sierra Smith had a good match for the Bobcats with eight kills and nine digs and Maddi Reynolds had 11 assists for Myrtle Point.
Bandon beats Waldport: The Tigers swept the visiting Irish 25-20, 25-12, 25-15.
“We played good team ball,” coach Mariah Vierck said. “Serving was a strength and we spot-served really well.”
Maddy Berry had seven aces and 19 digs for the Tigers. Kortney Ferreri had five aces and 13 assists and Kennedy Turner had three aces and eight kills.
Ashley Strain had three aces and five kills filling the regular rotation spot of Brittni England, who suffered a broken hand this week, Vierck said.
