Lady T-Birds sit in third with six games left to play

By Seattle Valdivia - Staff Reporter



The Lady T-Birds volleyball team remains in third place in the West Region of the NWAC conference standings with a win over Grays Harbor and a loss at the Thunderdome against the Pierce Raiders.

The team played in Aberdeen against fourth place Grays Harbor last Wednesday where the T-Birds won, 3-1.

Details were not available at press time to a technical error on the NWAC web page.

"We are steadily improving, becoming smarter players and the team is learning what can work in earning a point in different situations and against different teams," Highline Coach Chris Littleman said, "The more we are able to adapt to teams, the stronger we will be."

Last Friday, Oct. 12, the Lady T-Birds suffered a loss on their home court against the un- defeated West Region leaders Pierce, losing 3-1.

"We wasted too many swings," Coach Littleman said.

In the first set, both teams went back and forth from the very first point. The set ended, 29-27, with a kill by Pierce.

Highline then won the second set, with the T-Birds scoring nine straight points in the beginning, 25-11.

Then in the third set the teams went back and forth again, until the 11 point, when Pierce found a way to pull ahead, ending 25-19. That was followed by a T-Bird loss in the fourth set, 25-21, where a kill by Pierce sealed the deal.

"We played really well for 85 percent of the game. We need to pass more consistently toward the end of the game as well as mix up our hitting attack," said Highline Coach Littleman. "We are going to be a scary team to play at the NWAC tournament."

The T-Birds can get revenge on their next game against Pierce on Nov. 7 which is going to be the last game of the sea- son.

Highline is now, 5-2, in league play, 23-9, overall.

The Lady T-Birds played Green River on campus at the Thunderdome last night. Details were not available at press time.
The T-Birds will next face off with the Clippers this Friday, Oct. 19 at South Puget Sound at 7 p.m. in Lacey.

Highline also has a home game against the Centralia Trailblazers next Wednesday, Oct. 24 at 7 p.m.

The Lady T-Birds have six games remaining in the sea- son, three of them away and the other three on campus in the Thunderdome.
