By Tim Clinton
Marathon five set matches were the order of the day as Kennedy Catholic and Mount Rainier dug, set and spiked their way to state Thursday.
The No. 8-seeded Lancers qualified for the state Class 4A volleyball tournament with a 3-2 victory over No. 1-seeded Emerald Ridge to open District 3/4 action.
Mount Rainier took over the Curtis High School gymnasium floor after that and followed suit, defeating Rogers by a 3-2 score to also clinch a state tournament berth.
Mount Rainier of Des Moines missed an earlier opportunity to qualify for state, losing to Olympia, 3-1.
State runs Nov. 19-20 at the Yakima Valley Sun Dome.
