Lady Gulls qualify for the post-season

Jeff Ter Har Seaside's Tori Tomlin goes up for the ball. Tomlin, along with Morgan Blodgett, Anna Huddleston, Madison Jensen and Tori Tomlin, was one of four seniors honored on Senior Night.

BANKS — Banks closed out the Cowapa League volleyball season with a three-game sweep Oct. 18 over Seaside, 25-8, 25-19, 25-18.

Ranked 14th in the state, the Braves finish third in the league standings at 4-4. The No. 18-ranked Gulls finish 1-7 in league.

Tillamook scored a win on Senior Night at Astoria Oct. 11, and managed to repeat the feat five days later at Seaside.

While the Gulls honored their four seniors (Morgan Blodgett, Anna Huddleston, Madison Jensen and Tori Tomlin), the Cheesemakers left the Gulls’ Nest with a sweep, 25-7, 25-12, 25-8.

On the court, the Gulls were missing Huddleston, who rolled an ankle in the Oct. 13 tournament at Seaside.

“She’s an all-around player who does a little bit of everything for us,” said Seaside coach Demi Lund. “She’s our senior setter, and so we had players playing out of position tonight, and I think there were some jitters out there, just not having our leader on the floor.”

The annual Seaside volleyball tournament took place all day Oct. 13 at Seaside High School.

And the host Gulls finished 2-0 in bracket play, as Seaside won two of three games vs. La Grande (18-25, 25-23, 17-15), and swept Cascade in the tournament finale, 25-16, 25-17.
