Mya then scored again halfway the second half off a wonderful played ball from Lola LeBrenton.

 

On Wednesday they opened league hosting Gresham. A defensive battle on both sides of the ball in the first half as the teams went into the half tied 0-0. Four minutes into the second half Nevaeh Taylor sent a great ball through the defense to a waiting Abi Willett for a goal and a few minutes later Chloe Leonetti sent a perfect corner kick again to a waiting Abi Willett who scored her second goal of the game. The Pios scored their final goal with 8 minutes to play as Chloe Leonetti again sent a great ball in this time to Amber Jewel.

Also, scoring were AJ King, Angel Lopez-Plascencia, Alan Servin-Pureco.  The defense, consisting of AJ King, Jonathon Brito, Bailey Hellberg, Colin Conley, and Josepher Juarez-Cruz, played exceptionally well limiting Tigard's opportunities and setting the tone for the game.

Volleyball (Head Coach Head Leejay Lee, assistant coaches Doug Keightley, Richard Haner, Kathleen McCord, Erica Frajford, Emily McAlindin and Sara Wilcox)

Varsity-The Varsity team had a great week.  The team’s performance against Clackamas was their best in years.  Although they lost (3-0, 18-25, 22-25, 22-25), the team played some of their best volleyball of the season.  On Thursday the team took care of business against Centennial keeping their energy relatively high and getting the win.  They beat the Eagles 3-0 to improve to 7-4 overall and 6-2 in MHC play.  The team had the weekend off to rest before two consecutive tournament weekends ahead.  

 

They host the Barlow Bruins on Tuesday at home starting at 6:15 and then on Thursday they travel to Gresham for another 6:15 match.

 

JV- The JV team finished the week with a bang!  After a struggle earlier in the week to get a win against Clackamas on Tuesday, the ladies came out on top on Thursday against Centennial.  The exciting conclusion came Saturday while they traveled to a tournament at Century High School in Hillsboro.  The ladies worked hard all morning and finished first in their pool.  The girls left everything they had on the court during bracket play.  Everyone stepped it up on the way to the championship match, including German exchange student Charlotta Mittmann with six block kills in a single game.  After a disappointing loss (25-27) to Mountain View High in the first set of the final match, the girls dug deep, kept up their intensity, and won the final two sets to claim the title of tournament chamPIOns! 

They host the Barlow Bruins on Tuesday at home starting at 5:00 and then on Thursday they travel to Gresham for another 5:00 match.

 

JVII Black- The JVII Black team had another great week of volleyball. The JVII Black team started out the week with a hard fought victory over a very good Clackamas team. After losing the first set 6-25, OC found a way to fight back with excellent defense led by libero Lexi Petro. Strong serving from Hailey Charriere and Lacee Kelly contributed to the comeback victory. The JVII Black team continued their success on the court Thursday by defeating Centennial in straight sets.

On Saturday, the JVII Black team participated in the JVII tournament at OCHS. The Black team played well during pool play and secured a #6 seed in the championship bracket. Setter, Cali Henricksen, and middle hitter, Amiyah Holford, kept OC competitive during the defeat to a strong Sam Barlow team in bracket play.
