Gaston wasn't expected to be as good as last year, but with a new coach and team first approach, here they are

Here’s what happened last week in Oregon volleyball:

The Undefeateds

The 2022 regular season has concluded for 6A and 1A schools. We are happy to report that the last two truly undefeated teams, Jesuit in 6A and Damascus Christian in 1A, finished off their slates without an official blemish.

Since the last Notebook, Jesuit (29-0) has won three Metro League contests and won the Silver Division at the West Linn Tournament, defeating Central Catholic in the final after splitting pool play sets with South Salem. Sheldon defeated Westview in the Gold final.

The Eagles of Damascus Christian (31-0) spent the last two weeks twice defeating North Clackamas Christian, including in the Valley 10 District Tournament. Damascus Christian also defeated defending 1A state champion North Douglas.

In other words, neither team is slinking into the playoffs. They have taken on all comers and have earned their undefeated marks.

Let’s look back to the start of the year to determine whether we should have foreseen these undefeated campaigns.

Jesuit returned its firepower on the pins from last year’s state runner up team, but graduated its most imposing front court player, 6-3 middle Tess Masingale, now at Cal Poly SLO; and its dynamic backcourt duo of Maisie Alexander (Notre Dame) and Hannah Nguyen (Harvard).

The Crusaders thrived in 2022 despite the losses thanks to the consistent excellence of their left-side attack (Ceanna O’Loughlin and Isabel Patterson), consistency in the setting position (Jackie Carle), the emergence of Lilly Lansing as a force in the middle and the development of sophomore Addie Azavedo as the leader of the back row.

Damascus Christian was a mere handful of points away from playing for the 1A title a year ago. The Eagles, lost 15-11 in the fifth, to St. Paul in the state semifinals before defeating Crane for third place. Third is also where DC started in the pre-season coaches poll, but the Eagles ascended to the top spot after sweeping St. Paul on Sept. 24 and they have held the top spot ever since.

Looking back, Damascus Christian probably should have started No. 1 in the pre-season. The Eagles graduated two right sides, but their four best players, including superstar seniors Sierra Hale, Julia Mitchell and Abbigayle Bailey; all returned. Those players have been at least as good as advertised this year, which may explain why Damascus Christian has played in just one “do or die” set this season.

One more day…

For 16 4A teams, today is play-in day. Two top 10 teams, Marist Catholic and North Bend, as well as perennial power Sweet Home, are among those needing to win today to make the 16-team 4A bracket.

For other teams, however, Oct. 25 represents the last day of the regular season. All the brackets will be completed after today, but not before we see some juicy matchups, like 5A Bend versus 3A Sisters, 2A Gaston versus 4A Marshfield and a 5A clash between Crescent Valley and Silverton. All are ranked among the state’s top four in their respective divisions.

Should be fun!

Brackets set…

In 6A, 3A and 1A, the brackets are set. Two wins gets teams to the state tournament in 6A and 1A, while the top seeds will need just one win to make state.

Here are the top four seeds in each division:





Oregon City



Pleasant Hill

Santiam Christian

Horizon Christian, Tualatin


Damascus Christian


St. Paul

North Clackamas Christian

The top four seeds have been established in 4A as well, with Marshfield, Cascade, The Dalles and Tillamook in those positions.

Greyhounds streaking…

Gaston, the 2A runner up to Salem Academy a year ago, lost its first match of the season to 1A North Clackamas Christian. The Greyhounds lost again 12 days later, to 1A St. Paul. It was a rude welcome to the 2022 season for a Gaston team that won its first 19 matches a year ago, but was playing for the first time without graduated superstar middle MacKenzie Berger (Idaho State) and head coach Melody McMaster.

Since losing to St. Paul, Gaston has reeled off 15 straight wins, including a Northwest League playoff match for the No. 1 seed on Saturday, a swift sweep of Nestucca. Junior libero Cayden Henderson, junior setter Lexi Fern, senior middle Maya Rosenberg and senior outside hitter Ally Lazott led the way for the Greyhounds as they have all year.

Henderson contributed 21 digs, two aces and 15 passes on serve-receive. Rosenberg had eight kills and three blocks and Lazott showed off her power with five kills. Then there was Fern, the team’s leader and best athlete. The Northwest League MVP amassed 20 assists, 13 digs and an ace.

All four players above earned All-League honors, led by First Teamers Fern and Rosenberg. Freshman Sofie Fox, a 5-6 freshman S/OH, also was a First Team All-League pick for Gaston.

Gaston’s 19-2 record is a remarkable achievement given how much Berger dominated the floor for the Greyhounds a year ago. She was a superstar much in the same way that first-year coach Charity Hall, a legend at the school was, just five short years ago. While Hall would not turn down the opportunity to have Berger on her team, she is proving that wins come in all shapes and sizes.

Said Hall: “I've said this before: McKenzie was very talented and, from my understanding, a lot of last year’s success was built off of a one-woman show. This year, we represent team success at its finest. Every single person on the court contributes something amazing every single game to lead us to victory.”

Hall said she walked into 2022 not sure what to expect from her unsung squad.

“All I knew was that I had to get these girls to do their jobs on the court for each other,” she explained. “Once you start playing selflessly, you unlock something powerful as a team that I don't think they even knew they had.”

Gaston, which was ranked seventh in the pre-season in 2A, was third in the most recent survey, trailing only defending champion Salem Academy and 24-4 Monroe

“We've had our eyes on Salem Academy all year,” Hall said. “We'll be ready to face them again and hopefully come out on top as state champions.”

Quick hits…

For the first time since 2010, St. Mary’s (Medford) has advanced past the first round of the 3A playoffs. The Crusaders did so by winning the Far West League Tournament on Saturday. Their effort over the past week included two five-set wins over Cascade Christian, a team they had not defeated over the past dozen years; and a four-set win over surging Coquille, which came into the match 10-0 in league play and 17-5 overall after a 4-3 start.

Strong defense and aggressive serving keyed the win for St. Mary’s, which got 23 digs from Albie Borovansky, 78 assists from Kaitlyn Hansen and a combined 69 kills from Kelsey Dunn, Ada Bernard and Emma Johnston for the tournament.


Bend won its league last week. The Lava Bears finished 10-0 and only yielded one set in league play. Jillian Stein finished the final league match, a Wednesday sweep of Summit, with 14 kills,13 digs and three aces.


Sherwood has won four in a row since losing to Oregon City in the championship match of its tournament on Oct. 8. Setter Hannah Brown and libero Sidney Knowles were catalysts in the Bowmen’s play on that Saturday and have helped their team secure a top eight spot in the 6A playoffs.


Shout out to Springfield (4-17) for pulling off a huge 5A upset of North Eugene (13-8). And a sweep no less! Kylie Rankins had 24 digs to lead the way. Juju Henderson contributed four kills and four blocks and Sydney Christensen had five kills and 13 digs in the win for the Millers.


St. Paul’s Halsey Hempfling started serving at 11-5 in the third set versus Crosshill Christian on Oct. 18. The senior served 14 points in a row, including six aces, to close out the match on SENIOR NIGHT!

Mighty Mites!

We have asked high school coaches to tell us about their “Mighty Mites,” those six-rotation or front row varsity starters who stand 5-6 or shorter. This is a recurring list and we will add to it in the coming weeks. Here are the players we’ve uncovered so far. An [*] denotes a new player this week:

Vivian Buford, 5-6 Soph. OH, Crescent Valley – A dynamic player who is part power, part finesse when on the offensive, Buford suffered an early-season injury, which slowed her transition from the back row to a six-rotation pin. But she’s healthy now and coming on strong as the 5A No. 1 Raiders push for a state title.

Avery Bushey, 5-5 Sr. RS, Rogue River – Bushey was a libero last year, but returned to the right side, where she started as a sophomore, for her senior season. “Avery consistently stays in the top three on our team for kills, digs and blocks every game,” said coach Sarah Wicks

Morgan Cole-Hand, 5-2 Soph. OH, Spray / Mitchell / Wheeler – A great six-rotation player who is always hustling, coach Crystal Rey says that Cole-Hand “plays the net like she is 7-2."

Ella DeCarli, 5-5 Soph. OH, Beaverton – A knee injury to power hitting Destiny Hernandez opened up the door for the left-handed DeCarli, who has the highest vertical jump on the team. “What started as a needed back-up has turned into a go-to player for us,” said coach Ashley Waggoner.

Callie Denney, 5-3 Sr. RS, Spray / Mitchell / Wheeler – Denney is a great team leader who works hard on every point. She is one of the leading scorers for the Eagles.

Hannah Griffith, 5-5 Jr. OH, Portland Christian – A natural leader and the captain of the Royals this year, Griffith is best known for her serving. She averages four aces per match!

Ayah Hassouneh, 5-3 Sr. OH, Hillsboro – Injuries forced Hassouneh into a six-rotation role, where she’d previously been a serving specialist. She is doing a terrific job and finding ways to score.

Alana Keepes, 5-4 Jr. OH, la Salle Prep – A defensive player only the past two seasons, Keepes has proved this fall that she can play at the net in a dynamic way. “She has a really good arm swing and a can hit a variety of shots,” said coach Anna Dillard

Emma Kirschenmann, 5-5 Fr. OH, Cascade –Kirschenmann has a high arm swing and can jump. “She is a freshman who has had to step up this year and play that outside position and shows so much potential!” said coach Cristina Williams. “Not only is she athletic, she also is so coachable and is eager to learn more about the game.” 

*Naomi Johnson, 5-1 Sr. OH, Illinois Valley – Johnson displays her 28-inch vertical leap at the net and plays with aggression both on and off of it. “She has been a huge source of energy for the team this season,” noted coach Joe Kolkow.

Zewditu (Zewdi) Lampi, 5-1 Soph. S/RS, Portland Christian – Lampi is a huge contributor to the Royals. She had 25 assists on Oct. 6 versus Clatskanie as a front row setter and had a one-handed block. She also plays right back on defense and is sterling in that role.

Mikayla Moore, 5-5 Sr. OH, Rogue River – A varsity starter on the left side since her freshman year, Moore routinely leads her team in kills and is often top three for aces and digs.

Miracle Moore, 5-2 Sr. OH, Hillsboro – A former DS, Moore is now a fearless OH who averages five kills per match. “She will usually only be blocked once, then she figures out how to hit around the block, no matter how big the block is,” noted coach Suzan Hopman.

Valentina Pagani, 5-6 Sr. S/RS, Beaverton – An Italian exchange student, Pagani plays all the way around. Her high-level experience has made an unexpected impact on our team and has allowed starting lefty setter, Kaarina Geymann, to be able to attack successfully from the right side. Pagani is a great small player who has attacked and blocked consistently.

Kamryn Sande, 5-6 Soph. OH, Cascade – Sande is mighty despite being short of stature. She is super athletic and, coach Cristina Williams says, can “hit that line shot like a six-foot player.” Sande is a huge asset defensively, but has shown the ability to be a positive force at the net as well.

Most Improved

We have asked coaches to tell us about their “Most Improved” players. This is a recurring list. Those players denoted with an [*] are new this week.

Shea Appleyard, 5-6 Soph. DS/libero, Cleveland – Appleyard was on JV2 her freshman year and is now an important part of the Warrior varsity as a sophomore. “She worked incredibly hard in the off season to improve and it shows,” said coach Sydney Hammond. Appleyard has passed 106 serves, recorded 42 digs and served six aces so far this season.

Harry Berry, 6-1 Soph. MB, Milwaukie – A JV2 player as a freshman just getting started in volleyball, Berry’s love for the sport and a year of club ball had Berry this fall looking like a completely different player. “Harry is a blocking machine and they are getting their hits down and are working on hitting it hard!” noted coach Carol York! “Harry is someone to watch out for in the next couple of years.”

Ursula Harrington, 6-2 Soph. MB, Corbett – A JV player last year who swung varsity for the postseason, Harrington is now the MB2 for the 9-3 Cardinals. She has 11 solo stuff blocks on the year and is becoming a more efficient attacker every match. “She has quickly emerged as an aggressive and effective blocker and hitter and is developing the confidence and speed that will most definitely continue to result in steady improvement each week,” noted coach Angela Davis.

Emily Hegar, 5-10 Sr. MB, Central Catholic – A three-year varsity player, Hegar came off the bench for a few plays here and there her sophomore and junior years. Hard work in the off-season has paid off, as Hegar now is a starting middle for the Rams and putting up big numbers. She has 77 kills (hitting .250) and 17 blocks and is a team leader for Central.

Caitlyn Horrell, 6-0 Soph. MB, Burns – A JV player for most of 2021, Horrell has grown and gained confidence and is now a major contributor for the defending 3A-champion Hilanders. She is hitting .285 so far this year with 60 blocks and 56 aces.

Grace McQuain, 5-10 Sr. MB, Rogue River – A varsity starter the previous two years, McQuain has taken her game to an entirely different level as a senior. She leads the Chieftains in blocks and has been a blocking machine in Far West League play, typically getting 6-8 blocks per match.

Haley Moreschi, 5-9 Jr. S/OH, David Douglas – Moreschi primarily set for the Fighting Scots last year. She now hits when she is in the front row. “Along with having great setting hands, Haley is a team leader in kills and is one of the top two earners of service aces on the team,” said coach Janeen Rainey.  

Kylie Rankins, 5-9 Sr. libero, Springfield – An outside hitter the past two seasons, Rankins’ passing prowess led her to the libero jersey this year. She has shown tremendous growth. She finished last year with 196 digs and has eclipsed 300 digs already in 2022. She also is currently passing a 2.2 (out of 3) for the entire season and has a serving percentage of 97 percent for the entire season. “She is an impact player and part of our improvement here at Springfield High School,” said coach Keri Schwarz.

Reese Rothwell, 5-10 Sr. RS, Burns – An injury late last year derailed Rothwell’s season, but she has come back with confidence and perseverance. “She is a major contributor to the program as is a very strong server, with 60 aces so far and over a 90 percent serving percentage,” said coach Paula Toney

Fabulous Freshmen!

We asked coaches a few weeks back to tell us about their freshmen making big impacts on varsity this fall. This is a recurring list. Those players denoted with an [*] are new this week.

Mayenabasi Akpan, 6-1 MB, South Medford – Akpan is a massive presence in the middle. Averaging two stuff blocks per match, she forces opponents to change their plan of attack. She also is improving on the offensive end while averaging five kills per match for the 12-4 Panthers.

Madi Andrews, 6-0 OH, Nelson – Andrews is an all-round player and terminator who stuffs the stat sheet for the 11-2 Hawks. She has amassed 129 kills, 48 aces, 89 digs and 15 blocks.

Ellie Bartel, 5-11 OH, Crosshill Christian – Bartel is an all-around player and a steady point maker for the 7-4 Eagles. She leads the team in kills and aces and is third in digs, just three behind the team’s libero.

Alexia Braden, 5-7 OH, Beaverton – Braden is new to volleyball, but she is catching up fast due to incredible, natural athletic ability. “She plays with this cool, ease, and innocence that makes it look so fun,” noted coach Ashley Waggoner

*Emma Brewer, 6-1 OH, Salem Academy – Brewer has been an absolute standout for the top-ranked team in 2A. She has amassed 383 kills, 365 digs and 64 aces to date this season.

Lillimae Brumble, 5-9 MB, Crook County – One of the Cowgirls’ most productive hitters, Brumble has used her 9-8 jump touch to produce 90 kills and 11 blocks over 44 sets so far. “She is taking charge of the front row in her rotations and producing points,” noted coach Kristy Struck

Shelby Cenova, DS/libero, St. Mary’s Academy – Pulled up to varsity because of injuries and illness to Blues players, Cenova made an immediate impact as a passer, defender and server. “We kept her on varsity permanently,” said coach Wendy Stammer. “She has started for our varsity team since we added her to our roster mainly as our libero.”

Olive Clapp, 5-1 libero, Portland Christian – A starting libero who bring energy, fights for every point and doesn’t let anything hit the floor? I’d say she personifies the position!

Jada Johnson, 5-10 MB, Jesuit – It’s hard for a freshman to make an impact on the state’s best team but Johnson is doing just that. She is a very athletic leaper with great future potential who, even now, is taking pressure off of the vaunted Jesuit outsides because of her threat as an attacker.

Emma Kirschenmann, 5-5 OH, Cascade –Kirschenmann has a high arm swing and can jump. “She is a freshman who has had to step up this year and play that outside position and shows so much potential!” said coach Cristina Williams. “Not only is she athletic, she also is so coachable and is eager to learn more about the game.” 

Karina Lee, 5-7 OH, Cleveland – Lee has shined in six rotations for the Warriors. The freshman has recorded 52 kills, 128 digs and 24 aces over the first half of season. 

Finley Marine, 5-7 OH, Portland Christian – A good athlete with plus vertical leap, Marine has been an asset hitting at the net, but it is her defense that has stood out most and helped the Royals win matches.

Abby Maulding, 5-9 S, La Salle Prep – Maulding is already making an impact for one of the state’s top teams, as part of a setting tandem replacing a three-year starter who graduated last spring.

*Lucy McAllister, 5-4 Fr. DS, Damascus Christian (1A) – McAllister is approaching 70 aces on the year, one of the top marks for anyone, et alone a freshman.

Ryland Minnick, 6-0 MB, Crosshill Christian – Coach Julie Bennett called Minnick “an unassuming player that sneaks in and makes things happen.” She is second on the team in hitting, aces and digs and is the team’s best passer. In her last league match she hit 100 percent (8 for 8)!

Madison Sherby, 5-7 OH, Hillsboro – Sherby averages 10 kills per match, with a high of 25. She also is a top passer and clutch player. Sherby also is fearless on the volleyball court. Recently, when Hilhi’s setter was out due to injury, she stepped into that role, something she’d never before done, and led the team.

*Kaylee Spaulding, 5-2 Fr. DS, Gaston (2A) – Spaulding has more than 330 digs this year, making her one of the best defenders in the state statistically for all ages.

Jumping 10-feet on approach remains a lofty goal for most volleyball players. If you get enough air to touch a regulation basketball rim, you have the ability to hit over blockers and pick your own spots. That makes you a very dangerous scorer on the court!

In this space, we will recognize those Oregonians who have achieved that lofty mark. We will add to it in each Volleyball Notebook as coaches tell us about the players who have reached rare air. Here’s where we stand currently in the 10-Foot Club:

Katie Clevenger, 6-0 Sr. OH, South Medford 

Kortney Doman, 5-9 Jr. OH/MB, Crane 

Hailey Heytvelt, 6-2 Jr. MB, La Salle Prep

Sophia Gregoire-Salagean, 6-2 Sr. OH, Newberg

Faith Meyer, 5-11 Jr. MB, Beaverton

If you are a HS coach and want to add someone to the list, by all means email me, [email protected], put “10-foot club” in the subject line and provide the info in the manner shown above.


In this space, we list those players, playing Oregon high school volleyball in the current senior class and younger, who have made a commitment to attend a college or university of their choice and play volleyball. Please email [email protected] to add players to the list, using the format you see below.
