Tourney championship win caps 17-0 season
Weimar Hills’ 8th grade girls volleyball team put the cap on an undefeated season by sweeping to the recent Nevada County Athletic League tournament championship. The Lady Warriors, who won the regular season NCAL crown with a perfect 12-0 record, lived up to its No. 1 tourney seed by handling Pleasant Valley and Forest Lake Christian in pool play games before topping Seven Hills and Union Hill in bracket matches. Weimar then closed out Gilmore in the finals. The Lady Warriors were extended three games but took a 25-23, 22-25, 15-8 title clincher. Lady Warriors coach Jackie Biles noted that the championship 17-0 season was a complete team effort but did single out fine tourney play from Kylie Kirkland, Sophie Satterlee and Madison Ittner.
