HILLSBORO — Ridgeview’s remarkable late-season run got the Ravens to the Class 5A state championship final. And that is where they met their match.
Top-seeded Corvallis trailed only briefly in the first set and not again after en route to a 25-18, 25-13, 25-18 win over the No. 6-seeded Intermountain Conference champions Saturday night at Liberty High School.
“We just got outmatched,” said Ravens coach Randi Viggiano. “Corvallis has multiple offensive weapons, they make it so tough.”
Rylee Troutman had a team-high 16 kills and 11 digs for Ridgeview. Allicite Frost had 18 assists, and Ally Henry had 10 digs and two aces.
“Ally Henry played out of her mind tonight defensively,” said Viggiano of the Ravens’ sophomore libero.
The Ravens (23-7) trailed early in the first set, then went on top 9-7 and 10-9 before the Spartans regained control for good.
“We fought so hard, played some really great rallies,” said Viggiano. “We could’ve played cleaner, but it was definitely their night.”
Ridgeview won eight straight matches to get to the state final, including 3-1 victories Friday over No. 3 Crater in the quarterfinal round and No. 2 West Albany in the semis.
“I’m proud of our girls, how they played hard no matter what the score was,” said Viggiano. “We hope to get back to this game next year.”
