Curtis 3, Tumwater 0: The Vikings swept the T-Birds behind Haley Morton and Kayla Skipworth on Tuesday.

Morton recorded 42 assists while Skipworth had 16 kills, tied for most in the match. Tumwater’s Kennedy Croft also had 16 kills.

“Curtis is a pretty good team with a lot of experience as well," Tumwater coach Tana Otton said. “We just didn't do the other things right. We weren't putting the ball away on offense.”

Tumwater is the defending 2A state champions. Curtis, a 4A school, advanced to the second round of the state volleyball tournament in 2016.

“We kind of knew going in, we have a very young team this year,” said Otton. “While we have a lot to work on. I'm really hoping that our team knows the potential that we have and doesn't get down from a loss in these preseason matches."
