Heppner wins Helix Invite tourney
HELIX — The Heppner Mustangs claimed the top spot at the Helix Invite volleyball tournament on Saturday, besting Riverside and Dufur and upsetting the Imbler Panthers to close the competition, 25-19, 25-14.
Imbler had previously beat Helix and Cove before falling to Heppner.
Helix was 0-3 in pool play before losing to Imbler in the tournament’s first round.
“We struggled to find consistency in our offense and on our serve, and gave away too many free points,” said Helix coach Daniel Headley. “The girls never gave up, even with the struggles, and still worked together as a team. We have been tinkering with our lineups, and that is on me to better prepare them.”
Kyleen Stahancyk ended the tournament with 30 digs, while Annie Wood had 26.
Helix will host the Elgin Huskies on Tuesday.
