spot at the right time," said T-Bird Adrienne Haggerty.

communicating to each other." The T-Birds lost the first set, 25-20. They then lost the second set, 26-24, where they went back and forth since the very first 5 points but Lower Columbia

ended the set with a kill.

in the third set, 26-24. Highline was winning by 10 points in the third set but the Red Dev- ils found a way to score more points. An attack error by Mis- iona Riberio sealed the deal.
