Sehome volleyball falls to Burlington-Edison in battle of undefeated teams, looks ahead to postseason

THE BELLINGHAM HERALDOctober 30, 2013 

Sehome volleyball and Burlington-Edison faced off in a battle of unbeaten teams for the Northwest Conference title on Wednesday, Oct. 30, at Sehome High School. The Tigers came out on top, with a 25-18, 19-25, 25-12, 25-20 win over the Mariners.

"Our girls fought hard to make plays and played well. We knew Burlington-Edison was going to give us a run for our money," Sehome coach Kristy White said in a phone interview.

Dani Johnson had 13 kills for the Mariners, and Taylor Lyall added 13 kills and two aces. Megan Greer also had 32 assists for Sehome.

"In the second game we were more concerned with our side of the net. Then in game three we made too many errors and tried to force some things we'd never done before," White said. "We're excited to hopefully see them again in the postseason."

The Mariners finish the season 13-1 overall, 11-1 in NWC play and take the number two seed in the conference. They will take on Lake Washington High School at 4:30 p.m. Wednesday, Nov. 6, at Mountlake Terrace High School.

"Playing two state-ranked teams in the past week (Lynden Christian and Burlingon-Edison), we couldn't ask for anything better to prepare for the playoffs," White said.
