SPORTS: Crescent volleyball pounds Providence Christian to advance to tri-district tournament

MARYSVILLE — Crescent pounded Providence Christian 3-0 in a loser-out pigtail volleyball match Monday just in time to host the tri-district tournament Wednesday.

The Loggers, the No. 2 team from the North Olympic League, ripped Providence Christian 25-15, 25-23, 25-16.

Crescent now will host Christian Faith, the No. 1 1B school in state, in the tri-district first round at 11:45 a.m. while Neah Bay, the NOL champion, takes on Lummi at the same time in the first round at Crescent High School.

Crescent coach Alex Baker is expecting the Loggers to advance to state.

“If my team plays to their potential, we should be fine,” he said.

Mikela Williams sparked the Loggers against Providence Christian by going a perfect 12-for-12 in serving with three aces, five kills, two tips and a block.

“Mikela had an outstanding match,” Baker said.

Sara Moore was 17-for-17 from the line with four aces and four kills while Jandi Frantz earned five kills with an ace. Frantz was 1-for-1 in serving.

Freshman Devanie Christie stepped up to serve 12-of-14 with an ace.

“All 14 of our girls got on the court,” Baker said.
