University High’s volleyball and soccer seasons came to an end Thursday with playoff losses.
The fifth-place Titan volleyball team had a stronger season than expected in reaching the tournament, but were overpowered in three games by North Central in a loser-out contest.
This year’s team was virtually brand new, with only two returning varsity players, but coach Rik Austing said they would surprise and he was right.
First-year soccer coach Brandon Deyarmin inherited a young team but guided University to fourth place in league with a 9-7 record.
Junior Sara Streufert was third in league scoring with 12 goals, senior Emily Stuenkel scored nine, freshmen Casey Lektorich and Megan Black had eight and seven respectively.
Lektorich and Streufert scored in the 4-2 playoff loss to Ferris.

New officers were elected and awards presented during the Liberty Lake Ladies 18-Hole Golf Club luncheon.
Among the honors earned by golfers were the Review Cup citywide championship. Team members were Billie Etter, Jean Hatcher, Keri Barham, Alice Shattuck, Patsy Lynn, Gloria Cash, Marlene Theis and Honey Conlon.
Etter won the group’s Liberty Cup. Most improved in A-B division was Jackie Shea and in C-D division was Colene Weisnor.
Diane Hicks won club championship, and along with Shea and Yvonne Splan shared low gross honors with a 71. Low net winner was Mabel Watkins with 47.
