Photo Credit: LON AUSTIN/CENTRAL OREGONIAN - Laura Fraser goes up for a kill over the block of Gladstone's Deja Kays. Crook County defeated the visting Gladiators 25-11, 25-4, 25-9 to remain tied for first place in the Tri-Valley League. With just two league matches remaining, both the Cowgirls and the Madras White Buffalos have identical 7-1 league records. The eventual league champion will earn an automatic berth into the first round of the playoffs, while the second-place team will probably be forced to play a play-in game.
