Chelan Clinches 7th Place in Win Over Lakeside
Listen to a Recording of Dennis Rahm’s Interview with Senior Lexi Gleasman
Saturday, November 10, 1:00 p.m.: Chelan vs. Bellevue Christian
Saturday, November 10, 10:00 a.m.: Chelan vs. Kiona-Benton
Friday, November 9, 6:30 p.m.: Chelan vs. Lynden Christian
The Chelan Lady Goats lost a heartbreaker in the opening round of the 1A State Volleyball Championship at the SunDome in Yakima. Chelan was matched up against perennial power Lynden Christian in a rematch of last year’s contest that determined third and fourth place at state. The Lady Goats and the Lyncs are two of the top programs in the 1A ranks over the past decade, and the closeness of the match would have been much better served as a second or third round pairing instead of in the first round.
Lynden Christian took the first match of the day 25-20, but when Chelan bounced back to win the second set 25-21 it was apparent the match could go to a final set five, and that’s exactly what happened. Chelan kept the momentum going with a thrilling 26-24 win in the third set, only to see the Lyncs recover, as Lynden Christian claimed the win 15-7 to win the match three games to two.
Chelan now plays in the consolation bracket at 6:45pm tonight against Kiona-Benton, who lost 3-0 to Castle Rock. This amounts to a loser out game, with the winner moving on to play at 11am Saturday.
Friday, November 9, 3:00 p.m.: The Lady Goats are on the Court Warming Up

Thursday, November 8, 4:00 p.m.: The Goats Are Off to State Volleyball!
The Goats are off to to Yakima for the State Tournament!
The Chelan Lady Goats play their first match in the 1A State tourney starting at 3:15pm on Friday versus the always talented Lynden Christian Lyncs. It’s a tough draw as Chelan and Lynden Christian are considered to be two of the tourney favorites.
Chelan enters State play with an outstanding record of 16-1. They finished Caribou Trail League play undefeated and also captured the District 6 title before defeating Colville last week in Regional play to punch their ticket to Yakima.
Lynden Christian finished the season with a record of 15-3, but two of their losses were against unbeaten Ferndale of the 3A classification. Win or lose, the second match of Friday play for Chelan will start at 6:45pm against the winner/loser of Kiona Benton versus Castle Rock.
The team got a warm send-off today as they loaded the buses for their trip!
