MOSES LAKE — Walla Walla Community College went to its speed game here Friday in NWAACC volleyball action. The Warriors swept Big Bend 3-0, winning 25-10, 25-19, and 25-10.
The win improves the Warriors to 16-4 overall, and a perfect 4-0 in East Region League play.
“We played a lot of what I call ‘cardio volleyball,’” Warrior coach Tim Toon said. “We pushed the pace, scored points in bunches, and Big Bend could not keep up. This Warrior team is starting to figure out that you don’t play down to your opponents, you just play your best volleyball all the time.”
Reese Amy, the Warriors’ sophomore middle blocker, led the Warriors at the net with 11 kills and three blocks. Sophomore libero Jess Smith led the defense with 19 digs. Delaney Fisher chipped in 14 digs and added three aces from the service line.
Sophomore setter Courtney Cosdon distributed 22 assists and spread the Warrior attack evenly as Amy led with 11, Desiree Nielson added eight kills, and Renee Baumann and Taylor Lancaster had five each.
The Warriors take a No. 2 NWAACC ranking into a Wednesday home match with Wenatchee and then travel to Yakima Friday.
“4-0 in league is an amazing start,” Toon said. “Next week’s matches will decide if we are contenders or pretenders.”
