Warriors roll past Sasquatch


WALLA WALLA — The Walla Walla Community College volleyball team ended its regular season with a four-set win against Spokane on Wednesday.

The Warriors rolled past Spokane, 26-24, 19-25, 25-21, 25-22.

With the victory, the Warriors finish the season 26-13 overall and 10-4 in NWAACC East play. Walla Walla finished second in the East region, behind first-place Blue Mountain and second-place Spokane.

“It’s been a while since we have defeated a good team,” WWCC head coach Tim Toon said. “We put together some nice stretches of quality play and played with a lot of fire. This win puts us on track to make another solid run at the NWAACC tourney next week.”

Four sophomores also finished their regular-season careers against Spokane. Toon credited JaLisa Jose, Libby Davison, Delaney Fisher and Allie Johnson for representing the Warriors during the past two seasons. During those two years, the Warriors compiled a 60-24 record and finished third last season at the NWAACC Championship tournament.

“All at WWCC are proud of their contributions,” Toon said. “They have represented themselves, their teammates and the entire athletic program in outstanding fashion.”

Jose finished the match with 10 kills, 13 digs and three blocks. Davison added five kills, Fisher finished with eight digs and Johnson dished out 19 assists to go with eight digs.

Kiendra Chester led WWCC with 16 kills and five blocks.

“Kiendra grew up in Spokane and put on a show tonight against her hometown college,” Toon said.

Walla Walla High School grad Chantelle Zamora showed off her versatility, as she came up with 15 kills, 11 digs and two aces.

“She contributes in so many areas,” Toon said of Zamora. “We can’t win without her.”

Toon also said Denise Comfort continued her solid finish to the season, as she finished with five kills, four aces and 21 digs. Breanna Mehling led the Warriors with 29 assists.

Walla Walla opens the NWAACC Tournament on Nov. 21. The Warriors’ opponent is to be determined.
