Despite a third-game letdown, Winlock rebounded in the fourth set to put away Winlock in four ( 25-19, 25-16, 17-25, 25-22) during a Central 2B League battle on the road Monday.
Senior Madison Vigre led the Cardinals’ attack with a match-high eight kills, while Kindyl Kelly and Addison Hall each had four kills. Hall added a match-high four aces and Maia Chaney contributed a match-high nine digs.
Toledo was led by Brynn Williams’ team-high nine assists, and added four kills, three digs and two aces. Stefa Arceo-Hansen tallied a team-high six kills to go with three digs and four aces. Eden Jones had four kills, Bethany Bowen finished with two kills, two assists and two aces and Jordynne Hensley pitched in two blocks and one ace.
Despite the loss, the Riverhawks are still in contention with Morton-White Pass (1-8 league) and Rainier (1-8 league) for the ninth and final C2BL district playoff berth. All three teams have one league victory.
“We still have a shot at districts,” Toledo coach Brianna Klingberg said. “I’m hopeful my girls can pull it out and win later this week, whether it be Wednesday or a tiebreaker. They’re finally coming together and I’m excited for the potential these girls have.”
Toledo (5-9, 1-8 league) travels to Wahkiakum on Wednesday. Winlock (5-6, 4-5 league) next awaits district playoff seeding for the district tournament on Saturday.
