Doddridge falls in state volleyball tournament

by Randall Jett

CORRESPONDENT

Fairmont -- Doddridge County had its Cinderella run

at the Class AA-A volleyball title ended Saturday when

Wirt County defeated the Bulldogs, 15-11, 11-15, 15-2,

and 15-9 in semifinal action of the 22nd annual West

Virginia State Volleyball Tournament at East Fairmont

High School.

"It's sad that the season is over, but yet our girls

accomplished a lot," Doddridge County coach Kris

Bonnell said. "Wirt played really good, and they have

a great program. We played them three times this year

and lost to them three times."

The Bulldogs battled throughout the opening game and

held an 11-10 advantage over the Tigers, before Wirt

County reeled off five unanswered points. Brandy Higgins led the Tigers with

six points, while Heather Wyckoff topped Doddridge's

scoring with four points.

Doddridge stormed back in the second game, shutting

down Wirt County's offense with the scored knotted at

11-11. The Bulldogs scored the final four points to

tie the match at one game each. Karen Kellar was the

leading server with five points, while Judi Rose and

Kate Clark controlled the net.

Wirt County (36-15-2) then took control of the match,

shutting down the Doddridge offense and limiting its

own mistakes to advance to the title game for the

second time in the past three years.

Kim Hinzman led Doddridge with 10 points,

while Kellar added eight points and 35

assists, and Wyckoff added eight points. Rose

was the Bulldogs leader with 23 kills and Clark

tallied a team-best five blocks.

"We finished this year with a 30-14 record," Bonnell

said. "That was quite an accomplishment for our team

considering that before October 10, we were 7-9. It's

going to be hard to replace the seniors that we're

losing, but we have a really young team and I think we

have a lot to look forward to next year."

The AA-A title will be a rematch of the 1998

championship as Oak Glen disposed of Frankfort 15-8,

15-8 and 15-8. In AAA semifinal action, Parkersburg

routed Hedgesville 15-0, 15-10 and 15-7 to advance,

while Parkersburg South edged Capital 12-15, 15-10,

15-7, 9-15 and 15-6 to set up an all-Wood County AAA

championship match.
