The Sehome volleyball team remains unbeaten on the year after defeating Meridian in straight sets on Thursday, Oct. 9, at Meridian in a Northwest Conference matchup.
Despite not taking a set, the Trojans battled the Mariners tough in the first set, falling 25-20 and really testing Sehome. The final two sets were 25-12, 25-13.
“The girls played really great. They were scrappy, digging balls. They had so many digs in that set,” Meridian coach Shannon Claeys said in a phone interview. “It was really close, back-and-fourth.”
Sehome was led by Dani Johnson’s 13 kills and 11 aces. Natalie Knops added 19 digs, and Emily Greer also had 15.
Never miss a local story.
Meridian was led by Alexia Bernardy’s 16 digs, five kills and two aces. Ellie Dennis added four kills and 14 digs, as well.
Sehome (9-0, NWC 7-0) hosts Blaine on Tuesday, Oct. 14, while Meridian (0-8, 0-6) plays host to Bellingham the same day.
