Trojans Sweep Firm Foundation Ahead of District Tournament


Winning a tight first set and keeping that momentum rolling all the way into a sweep, the Pe Ell volleyball team dispatched Firm Foundation in a big game for district seeding, 25-23, 25-15, 25-16 Friday night in Naselle. 

The win means that the Trojans will play Wishkah Valley on Monday in a loser-out contest for the first round of districts. The winner of that game takes on the winner of Oakville and Willapa Valley on Wednesday. 

But first and foremost, the Trojans needed to take care of business, and they did in a straight-sets win. 

“We have been playing really well and our goal was to continue that,” Trojans coach Eddi Peterson said. “We took advantage of a big hole in the middle and kept hitting it with tips.”

Brookelynn King and Charlie Carper both had perfect serving nights for the Trojans, with Carper adding four kills and tips, and Bailey Cox also adding four tips to her line.
