The competition was different, but the result was the same.

A year after winning the Class 3A state volleyball championship, West Valley of Yakima rolled to a 3-1 win (23-25, 25-18, 22-25, 25-18) over Tumwater to take home the Class 2A volleyball title on Saturday night at Pierce College in Lakewood.

Despite dropping to a lower classification this year, Rams’ coach Katie Hinckley said they didn’t expect to face anything but the toughest teams in the state.

“Going down to 2A doesn’t mean it’s going to be easier,” she said. “Tumwater is one of the best teams we have played. It’s an amazing feeling because that’s a very good team we beat.”

West Valley came into the final coming off a 3-1 victory over rival Selah (25-22, 25-21, 26-28, 25-12). The Vikings had beaten the Rams for the district title last weekend.
