In front o f a large home crowd,
the Heppner Mustang JV volley­
ball team took the Sherman
County team in two, to win their
last home match of the season,
15-4, 15-4.
H eppner playing 13 girls
strong in the match, displayed
why they sport a 14-0 record.
“Unselfish play, talent and deter-
rmnation carry this team of girls
through their games each week.
Learning to play with many
player combinations to under­
mine their opponents has been
their strength,” said coach Susan
Brooke Boyer, no. 1 setter-
server, set the tone with setting
and 6-6 service attempts. Ashley
Mustangs blast Rockets
By Molly Rhsa
Pilot Rock rocketed over to
Heppner on Tuesday, October
14, and the Mustang net squads
blasted them right back over the
hill as all three of the home-girl
teams won their matches.
The C team started out the
evening o f volleyball action
winning their match 7-15, 15-6,
15-8. The Heppner C's hadn't
had a match since September 30
and it was evident in die opening
game, as they looked a little flat.
The C's had trouble just getting
the ball over the net, both with
serving and returns, and ended up
dropping the first game, 7-15.
In game two Heppner managed
to switch off the Rockets'
boosters for good. Krista Adams
started off the game with an ace
and the young Mustangs were off
and running to a 6-0 lead. Maja
Dietiker had four kills to lead the
attack and the Mustangs won ,
The third game was like a
continuation of the prior. The
C's allowed Pilot Rock's first
server to score one point, then
the Mustangs' Beth Baker went
behind the service line to score
points one through six to put the
home team out front for good.
Heppner was up 13-4 when the
Rockets tried to fire up, but the
charged up C's quickly quenched
the flames and took the game and
the match, 15-8.
Serving 100 percent for the
match were Dietiker, 9/9,
Lindsey Ward, 9/9, Macy Rhea,
1/1, while Baker went 10/11 and
Marissa McCabe was 4/5.
Strong net play was displayed by
Ward, Amanda Sneddon and
The JVs grabbed up their reins
and never let go as they defeated
the Rockets, 15-4, 15-13.
Brooke Boyer started out by
serving up the first three points
and the Mustangs never looked
back as they raced to a 15-4 win.
Casey Ingraham was relentless in
the first game as she went 100
percent from behind the service
line (4/4) and had nine hits on
nine attempts with five kills.
The score was tied up at three
apiece in the second game when
Kathleen Greenup stepped back
and scored points four through
11. With consistent serving and
strong net play the Mustangs
were up 13-4, then 14-5. Then
the next twelve Mustangs served
for game point. It was drawn out
to watch, but the team looked
like they were having a great
time as they repeatedly dug out
the hits and set up the hitters, but
the JVs just couldn't seem to put
a lid on the game. The girls
definitely got in some playing
time and finally took the game,
The JVs served 81 percent for
the match. One hundred percent
serving efforts were contributed
by Allison Sykes, 8/8, Amy
Papineau, 5/5, and Ingraham,
4/4, while Greenup went 10/11.

Kahl shared the setting duties.
Consistent all around play was
seen from Trisha Adams, Macy
Rhea, Papineau and Sykes.
The Heppner varsity team
hardly gave the Rockets a chance
to rev their engines as they
knocked them off in two quick
games, 15-5, 15-3.
Mustangs maintained their high
intensity attack in spite of a Pilot
Rock team that was missing
their core players.
Heppner used only six servers
(one complete rotation) to win
game one with 100 percent
service success. Game two was
almost as quick as the Mustangs
continued to pound the Rockets.
Heppner went 20/22 from behind
the service line in the second
game, a 95 percent service
success for the match.
Mustangs contributing 100
percent serve success include Jill
Barber, 9/9, Jessie VanWinkle,
6/6, Brooke Boyer, 5/5, Linsey
Jaci Hughes, Jayme
Hansen and Annie Hisler, all 3/3,
Amber Peck and
Ingraham, 2/2, while Mindy
Binschus and Petra Elguezabal
served 1/1.

hardwood for the Mustangs were
Hisler who successfully hit six
for six attempts with five kills,
Lexi Matteson, 7/9 with five
kills, Elguezabal, 5/7 with four
kills and Binschus, 2/3 with two
Janelle Healy made several
good passes to set up the hitters.
Setting duties for the match were
shared by Hisler, Barber, Boyer
and Hansen.
"I was pleased with our
intensity tonight," said Coach
Terri Gentry. "Sometimes it's
difficult to maintain a high
aggression level when playing a
team that isn't very challenging.
Our girls really kept up their
mental game tonight."

Kahl followed up nicely while
assisting their teammates with
setting abilities. Kahl also served
7-7 on the night. Chipping in 7-9
was Trisha Adams, and Kathleen
Greenup, a 91 percent accuracy
server on the season, was 3-3.
Heppner saw another 90 per­
cent team service for the team in
game one. Excellent hitting op­
portunities were taken up by
sophomores Casey Ingraham,
Kim Pointer and Amy Drake.
Pointer and Drake continued to do
damage at the net with spiking
and blocking expertise. Adams,
Amy Papineau, Leah Denton,
Greenup, Stephanie Clough and
Allison Sykes provided net sup­
