Cowgirls fall in title game at West Linn
October 21, 2012Crook County High School
WEST LINN — Crook County made it a goal to reach the championship round at the West Linn Invitational, which included some of the best volleyball teams throughout the state.
The Cowgirls did just that, and came close to accomplishing more.
After compiling a 5-1 record in pool play and getting by Santiam Christian (25-20, 25-21) and Jesuit (25-22, 21-25, 15-13), Crook County, the No. 1 team in Class 4A, fell to Central Catholic, the top-ranked team in 6A, 25-16, 25-15.
“It was a real tough tournament, and I am just happier than heck," Crook County coach Rosie Honl said. “They feel like they can do this again. It was a good learning curve for them to see the best in the state and be able to compete with them."
Makayla Lindburg led the Cowgirls with 57 kills on the day to go along with 36 digs. Hannah Troutman logged 60 digs, 44 kills and six aces, while Kayla Hamilton and Elsa Harris combined for 12 aces.
“They are just getting better every day," Honl said. “They’re working hard every day trying to get better. It’s really exciting."
Crook County travels to Redmond on Tuesday for a Class 4A Special District 1 matchup with Ridgeview.
