Carmen Ganger had four aces, seven kills and three blocks. Kaybie Rutledge had six kills, two blocks and 10 digs while Makayla Murphy had two aces, seven kills, 16 assists and seven digs. “This win was such an unreal feeling,” Alyssa Fox said. “I’m so excited I get to experience state for the first time and get to go with such an amazing team.” “It was a fantastic match battling back and forth with Harrisburg,” Sutherlin coach Kathy Rice said. “Much respect to the Harrisburg team and their coach. I am very proud of my girls for sticking together as a team and never giving up on each other.” Sutherlin will travel next Friday to Forest Grove High School where they will face top ranked Santiam Christian at 1:15 p.m. in a quarterfinal match. The Bulldogs could face county rival South Umpqua in a semifinal matchup later Friday night if both teams advance.
