Red Raiders sweep Mountaineers

Bellingham’s volleyball team swept Mount Baker in a 25-9, 25-13, 25-18 victory on Tuesday, Sept. 16, at Bellingham High School.

The Red Raiders were led by Summer Douglas’ eight kills and four aces. Brittany Western added 11 assists and Sophia Lawerence had 22 digs.

Bellingham did a lot of things right in the win, coach Kim Bjorklund said.

“We served really well tonight and played good defense, so I was happy with that,” Bjorklund said in a phone interview. “We covered the court well on defense. I think that was good, but we’ll need to take it up a notch to play Squalicum (on Thursday, Sept. 18). We’re getting better and playing scrappy defense.”

Bellingham takes on Squalicum at 7 p.m. Thursday, Sept. 18, at Squalicum. The Moutaineers play next at 7 p.m. Tuesday, Sept. 23, at home against Sedro-Woolley.
