CLACKAMAS — The No. 20 Roseburg volleyball team was eliminated by No. 13 Nelson in straight sets on Wednesday in the first round of the Class 6A playoffs.

Scores were 25-17, 25-13, 25-20.

The Indians, who tied for second in the Southwest Conference, ended their season with a 13-9 record.

Hayden Pinard had 16 assists and 11 digs for Roseburg. Kennedy Baylis-Hines contributed seven kills, Micah Lake made 11 digs and Kinsey Brelage added six digs in the loss.

"We struggled with serve receive and it kept us out of system most of the night, not allowing us to get clean swings," Roseburg interim head coach Jennifer Klopfenstein said. "It's tough to end the season on a loss like that.

"I'm very proud of how hard the girls fought and battled for me all season," Klopfenstein added. "The girls were tenacious in their effort and there's so many moments of successful volleyball that I'm so proud of."

The Tribe loses five seniors — Lake, Kylee Carpenter, Addison Weckerle, Mallory Malysz and Jaden Warmouth.

The Hawks (17-7) travel to No. 4 Central Catholic (22-2), a 25-14, 25-13, 25-16 winner over No. 29 South Medford (11-12), for a second-round match Saturday.
