WENATCHEE - Walla Walla Community College suffered a crushing NWAACC Eastern Region volleyball defeat Friday night to the host Knights.
Crushing because the Warriors won the first two games, 25-22, 27-25.
Wenatchee Valley rallied to take the next three, 27-25, 25-12, 15-11.
The Warriors are now 3-7 in league and 17-16 overall.
Brittany Dominguez had 15 kills for WWCC. Libby Kern added 10 and Nikki Long contributed eight.
Corrine Holbrook had seven kills and 12 digs, Kayla Hanus had 41 assists and 17 digs, and Laekynn Culpepper had 21 digs and two aces for Walla Walla.
"Brittany recorded a lot of kills against one of the best middle blockers in the NWAACC," WWCC coach Tim Toon said. "Libby continued her quality net play. Kayla played her heart out.
"We were really hoping to come up here and steal a win," Toon said. "Wentchee did not play great and that left the door wide open for us. Unfortunately, we did not play our best either.
"Some clutch touches on the ball helped us win the first couple games, but mental errors led to big early deficits in the next three games," Toon said. "Behind 21-24 in game three, we were able to tie the score at 24. We had a chance to close out the match with a three-game sweep, but it was not meant to be."
The Warriors host Blue Mountain for Breast Cancer Awareness Night at 6 p.m. Wednesday.
