WENATCHEE — The Walla Walla Community College volleyball team dropped Wenatchee in four sets Thursday.
Walla Walla (16-7, 5-1) head coach Tim Toon said the Warriors managed to survive by winning the first two sets, 25-16, 27-25, before dropping the third set, 25-19, and then taking the fourth set, 25-15.
“This match will not go down in history as the prettiest ever at WWCC,” Toon said. “In fact, it was pretty ugly. The Wenatchee road trip is always a challenge and it has been a while since our last road trip.”
JaLisa Jose racked up 11 kills and eight digs and Chantelle Zamora added 10 kills and 16 digs. Kiendra Chester and Libby Davison chipped in six kills each.
Breanna Mehling led the Warriors with 27 assists and Devin Casterline finished with a team-high 21 digs.
With the win, Walla Walla sits in third in the NWAACC East standings. The Warriors continue their road trip with an away match at Columbia Basin College Friday. Toon said his team must come out with more energy against the Hawks.
“I hope we can get off the bus better at the Columbia Basin match on Friday,” Toon said. “We have been training well in practice. I think we are ready to take the next competitive step in our season.”
