Warriors win both matches on home stand

Walla Walla Community College’s volleyball team won two matches at home here over the weekend, finishing off Treasure Valley in three sets on Friday and then rallying to beat North Idaho in four on Saturday.


The Warriors (27-5 overall, 8-2 in the East) came out of the homestand alone in second place, with Blue Mountain (7-2 in the East) having only played on Saturday — and swept Yakima Valley in the process.


WWCC, meanwhile, will take a three-game winning streak into its next match, this coming Friday at Wenatchee Valley.


The Warriors opened their homestand this weekend by making short work of Treasure Valley with 25-17, 25-16 and 25-22 scores this past Friday.


Morgan Ness scored 13 kills for the Warriors, teammate Abbey Schwager dished 35 assists, and Pomeroy alumn Kacey Halbert hustled after 26 digs.


But North Idaho won the first set, 25-19, on Saturday.


WWCC came back with 25-18, 25-21 and 25-23 wins to take the match.

Schwager had another 34 assists, and Halbert was good on 24 digs.


“This was a great win for us against the No. 2-ranked team in the NWAC,” Warrior coach Chelsie Speer said of the North Idaho win. “I am very proud of this group for earning 3 wins this week.”
