Lady T-Birds win three straight

By Seattle Valdivia - Staff Reporter



With three straight victo- ries, the Highline women's volleyball team now trails Lower Columbia and Pierce by a single game in the West Region of the NWAC confer- ence.

All three teams are un- defeated in league play, but Highline has one less victo- ry. That could be remedied shortly as both Lower Colum- bia and Pierce are coming up soon on the T-Birds schedule.

Highline visited Green River on Sept. 21, beating the Gators, 3-0. They followed that up on Sept. 26 beating South Puget Sound, 3-0, in the Thunderdome. The T-Birds won the first set, 25-12.

They then won the second set, 25-12, scoring the final three straight points.

That was followed by a vic- tory in the third set, 25-14, on a final kill point made by outside hitter Misiona Ribe- rio. The win improved the T-Birds' overall record to, 21- 7. Lower Columbia boasts a record of 20-4, as does Pierce.

On Sept. 28, the Volleyball team played at Centralia Col- lege against The Trailblazers. The T-Birds won 3-1. High- line won the first set, 25-21, lost the second set, 24-18, and then won the third set, 25-17.

A double block by the T-Birds outside hitter Juan- ita Tuimavave and middle Adrienne Haggerty sealed the deal.

The T-Birds then won the fourth set, 26-24, with a kill point made by Alicia Nguyen on an assist from Kiani Troy. "The team has worked hard all preseason to get where it is," said Highline coach Chris Littleman. "We need to show more consistency on being able to do three things correct and then repeat. We just need

to play consistent and elimi- nate silly errors."

The T-Birds played Taco- ma Titans last night. Details were not available at press time. They will face off with Red Devils this Friday, Oct. 5 at Lower Columbia at 7 p.m. Highline also has an away game at Grays Harbor, Oct. 10at7p.m.
