VOLLEYBALL: No. 4 Verdigris falls to No. 1 Elgin in 4A state semifinals

CHICKASHA — The road to the Class 4A State Volleyball Championship ended Saturday afternoon in the semifinals for the No. 4-ranked Verdigris Lady Cardinals.

No. 1-ranked Elgin — who went on to claim the 4A state title — defeated Verdigris, 3-1 and stayed perfect on the season with a 33-0 record.

Verdigris trailed 22-17 in the fourth game before piecing together a 5-1 run to get within a point of Elgin.

Throughout the match, the Lady Cardinals fought tooth-and-nail with Elgin at the net as Stacia Payne, Correy Moyer and Courtney Risenhoover tallied close to 10 kills.

Elgin completed the perfect season with a 3-1 win over Cache in the 4A state championship match.

In the third game, Payne's resiliency on the outside sparked Verdigris to a 25-20 victory. Payne registered multiple kills down the stretch to hold off Elgin's 8-1 rally.

The Lady Cardinals nearly tied the match when they took a 23-22 lead in the second game. KaLynn Thorp's service ace provided a lift for Verdigris, but Elgin countered with three straight points to get the 25-23 victory.

Verdigris middle blocker Correy Moyer was named to the 4A State All-Tournament team.

The Lady Cardinals completed the season with a 26-10 overall record.

  • DSC_0114web.jpg SOCCER: JV Lady Zebras edge Verdigris, 2-1

    Claremore sophomore forward Brylee Brasher may have felt a little out of position Monday night during the junior varsity game against Verdigris.
    Normally, starting in the goal for the Lady Zebras varsity team, Brasher came out of her comfort zone to start at forward for the Claremore JV.
    The position switch proved to be a great decision for head coach Robin Sutherland, as Brasher showed a tenacity on offense that led to Claremore’s 2-1 win over Verdigris.
