Lady T-Birds win with playoffs in sight

By Seattle Valdivia - Staff Reporter



The Lady T-Birds volleyball team is tied for second place in the West Region of the NWAC con- ference standings with Lower Co- lumbia Red Devils, right behind the undefeated Pierce Raiders.

The T-Birds are now 7-2, just like the Red Devils, but it could be remedied shortly as Lower Columbia is coming up soon on Highline's schedule. Pierce remains in first place with a 9-0 record.

"We are just making sure that we need to be consistent on every point," Head Coach Chris Littleman said.

The Lady T-Birds played Green River Gators in the Thunderdome last Wednesday.

The T-Birds opened the scoreboard with a kill made by Adrienne Haggerty. That was followed by 24 more points, fin- ishing 25-13 in the first set.

The T-Birds then beat the Gators in the second set, just letting them score, only seven points, finishing 25-7.

That was followed by a vic- tory in the third set, finishing 25-10 where a kill by Tina Beth- am sealed the deal to send the Gators home with a 0-9 record.

The T-Birds visited the Clip- pers last Friday at South Puget Sound, where Highline claimed another victory.

The T-Birds beat the Clippers in the first set, winning 25-9.

Then in the second set, the Clippers managed 20 points, but Highline still took the win, 25-20. That was followed by a victory in the third set, 25-14.

Highline Coach Littleman said he was pleased about the last two games.

"We used the past two

matches to work on things we needed to improve," he said. "We are looking to keep improving up until the NWAC championships."

The Lady T-Birds played the Centralia Trailblazers last night at the Thunderdome. Details were not available at press time.

Five games are left on the T-Birds schedule. The T-Birds

are now 7-2 in league play, 25-9 overall.

The T-Birds will face the Ta- coma Titans next Friday at Ta- coma Community College at 7 p.m.

The T-Birds will also host the Lower Columbia Red Devils next Wednesday, Oct. 31 to see who will earn the second place in the West Region standings.
