The King’s volleyball team won the 1A state championship Saturday at the Yakima Valley SunDome.

The Knights beat Cascade (Leavenworth) 25-12, 23-25, 25-21, 25-10 in the tournament championship match.

In the semifinal round earlier in the day, King’s defeated Lynden Christian 25-22, 27-29, 25-17, 25-22.

Snohomish took eighth place at the 3A state tournament, held at the Toyota Center in Kennewick.

The Panthers defeated Timberline 26-24, 16-25, 25-23, 23-25, 15-9 in a consolation contest, then fell to Gig Harbor 25-12, 25-15, 25-19 in the seventh-place match.

“The girls are excited. They won a trophy, and that was their goal,” said Snohomish coach Alex Tarin. “Of the last five matches we played going into (the Gig Harbor match), four of them were win or go home, and we won all four. The resiliency of this team comes from its heart. The players have heart. They just didn’t want to lose. They had goals, and nobody was going to stop them.

“We were saying that we’re the new ‘cardiac kids.’ They just kept fighting no matter what the score was. They kept their heads up and fought, and it was fun to see them come through.”

Grace Raper led the Panthers against Timberline with 15 kills and five digs. Roz Gillie had 14 kills and eight blocks, while Natalie Stern had 14 kills and 18 digs and Claire Turner posted 32 assists.

Stanwood was eliminated from the tournament with its 25-15, 25-20, 25-16 loss to Prairie.

Lake Stevens was knocked out of the 4A state tournament, also held at the Toyota Center. The Vikings lost to West Valley (Yakima) 25-23, 23-25, 24-26, 29-27, 15-12.


Bellevue 42, Oak Harbor 7

The Wolverines added two more scores in the third quarter before the running clock started when Bellevue made it 42-0 early in the fourth quarter.

Oak Harbor finished its season at 9-2.
