Monroe follows winless ’99 with state appearance

Associated Press

No team in the state went further in one season than the Monroe Bearcats.

Despite being eliminated with three losses in pool play Friday at the Class 3A state tournament, Monroe reached the final 16 after going winless last season.

Monroe went into last week’s Northwest District playoffs as the fourth and final seed from the Western Conference 3A and went on to finish second.

Meanwhile, Lynnwood was also eliminated from the 3A tournament after going 1-2 in pool play.

Going into the evening session in Class 4A, Woodinville was 1-1, Cascade and Marysville-Pilchuck were both 0-1 and Kamiak was 0-2.

Granite Falls won its first match in the Class 2A tournament, but lost the next two and was ousted in a tiebreaker.

Darrington was 1-2 in pool play in Class A and failed to advance. The Loggers lost in three games to seventh-ranked Freeman and fourth-ranked Zillah before sweeping aside University Prep.

Erin Nations had 24 kills, Casey West had 21 kills and Michelle Meece served 27-for-27 with eight aces for the Loggers.

“We played outstanding defense against some awfully big-hitting teams,” said Darrington coach Greg Powell.

Snohomish County Christian was 1-2 in its Class B pool and failed to advance.
