WALLA WALLA — The Walla Walla Community College volleyball team defeated Walla Walla University in four sets Monday night, 25-21, 25-21, 20-25, 25-13.
“This was a tough battle for us tonight,” Warrior coach Tim Toon said. “We found ourselves behind in every game and had to reach deep to find a string of quality plays to get us in striking distance.”
Leading the way for WWCC were JaLisa Jose with 13 kills, 11 digs and seven blocks, and Breanna Mehling dished out 21 assists and had three aces.
Walla Walla High School grad Chantelle Zamora smacked 11 kills and picked up 14 digs, with Denise Comfort getting nine kills, Libby Davison eight kills, and Allie Johnson handed out 18 assists and two aces.

“This 2013 team has several speeds,” Toon said. “Tonight, we played below the speed limit. We will have to play up to full potential as we jockey for playoff position the next several weeks.”
Also for the Warriors, Delaney Fisher recorded two aces and 12 digs, Samantha Thompson had five blocks, and Dayton grad Nicole Lambert picked up three aces and 12 digs.
The Warriors, now 17-8 overall and 5-2 in NWAACC East Region standings, go to Spokane Wednesday for a 6 p.m. league match.
