After fighting their way into the 4A state tournament Nov. 10-11 at the Toyota Center in Kennewick the M-P Lady Tomahawks lost in the consolation round.
M-P began the double-elimination tournament with a 3-0 loss to Lewis and Clark High School Friday, Nov. 11, and then had their season ended at the hands of Shadle Park High School 3-0.
M-P finished their season with a 12-7 overall record.
Junior varsity coach Nathan McClellan said despite falling short among the best teams in the Evergreen State it was an excellent season.
This was a great group of girls, he said. We are really going to miss our six seniors, but we have seven returning players for next year.
Game scores against Shadle Park were 25-20, 28-26 and 26-24.
Senior outside hitter Nancy Couls received the sportsmanship award after the contest from the refereeing crew.
McClellan said the girls fought really hard but were unable to overcome their errors.

Game scores were 25-15, 25-19 and 25-14.
Junior middle blocker Jessica Masters gave the Lady Tomahawks some good news with the first of two sportsmanship awards.
We faced some tough competition there, McClellan said. We started out slow. It was tough to come back but the girls gave it a great effort.
