Orcas snag first win

Whatcom Community College’s volleyball team finally put up a number in the win column, as they topped Yakima Valley Community College 3-1 on Wednesday, Sept. 13, at Yakima Valley.

WCC (1-5) was led by Hanna Halverson’s 34 assists on the night. Other stat leaders included Taylor Lindbloom’s 11 kills and Danielle Strasser’s five blocks.

“It was big for us,” WCC coach Angie Short said in a phone interview. “It really got the girls to feel like the hard work was paying off and hopefully it’s a trend in the right direction.”

WCC enters the Walla Walla Community College Invite on Friday, Sept. 12, in Walla Walla.
