GRANITE FALLS — Shannon Bailey of Cedarcrest had a career night Monday but her personal best 26 kills still harbored a bit of frustration. One more and she would have had the school record. Nonetheless, the Redwolves were able to clinch a 2A District 1 playoff berth in their 25-22, 21-25, 25-13, 29-27 victory over Granite Falls.

“We just couldn’t stop her,” Granite Falls coach Mark Newman said of Bailey. “We tried to block her and weren’t succesful.”

Bailey’s 26 kills was one better than her previous best, a feat accomplished in the last meeting between Cedarcrest and Granite Falls. The school record is 27 kills, a record held by Erin Townsend in a 1999 match against Mt. Si.

Bailey finished the night strong committing 12 kills in the final game including the game winner.
