Senior Sierra Plum hustles to the ball during last November's South Central Athletic Conference District Championship game against Naches. Plum is the only representative from the South Central Athletic Conference at the March 10 Senior All-State game.

Goldendale senior Sierra Plum and the Timberwolves volleyball team may have ended their season in November on the second day of the state tournament, but the All-State setter still has one more game to play as a member of the Timberwolves.

Earlier in the year, the Washington State Volleyball Coaches Association announced the selections for the 2018 Senior All State Volleyball games, and Plum was one of just five seniors chosen to represent the Class 1A schools.

Plum will play in the Class 1A/2A All State contest which is slated for 4 p.m. on March 10 at Auburn-Riverside High School in her last chance to showcase her talents before heading off to school after she graduates later this year.

A four-year starter at the setter position for the Timberwolves, Plum was instrumental in Goldendale's run to the state tournament last season and will surely be missed in the coming seasons.

She set Goldendale's all-time assist record late during the 2016 season, passing assistant coach and 2009 Goldendale graduate Kylee Barnes record of 1,646 career assists as a Timberwolf.

Plum and the rest of the Timberwolves knocked off the South Central Athletic Conference East's No. 1 seed (Kiona-Benton) during the first game of districts, and advanced to the league championship match where they fell in four sets to the Naches Rangers.

Goldendale secured one of the league's three state spots and swept Bellevue Christian in its opening match before falling in the next two games to just miss placing.

Plum was voted to the SCAC All-League First Team the past two seasons, and is the only player from the conference to be selected to play in the Senior All State Volleyball game in early March.

The event kicks off with the Class 2B/1B game at 2 p.m. at Auburn-Riverside High School in Auburn, followed by the 1A/2A game at 4 p.m., and the 3A/4A contest at 6. Admission is $7 for adults and $5 for students with an ASB card.

Coaches for Plum's game will be Kings' Jeff Fransen and Lakeside's Kara Moffatt. Kings was the Class 1A state champions last season.
