Mariners come back to edge Bellingham

The Sehome volleyball team kept its undefeated record with a come-from-behind 3-2 Northwest Conference win over visiting Bellingham on Monday, Oct. 27.

The Mariners dropped the first two sets 25-20, 25-20, but stormed back to take the final three 25-19, 25-17, 15-5.

“We had way too many errors,” Sehome coach Kristy White said in a phone interview. “We just needed to make them scramble so they couldn’t run their offense.”

Sehome (13-0, 11-0 NWC) was led by Megan Greer’s four aces and 40 assists. Dani Johnson added 24 kills and 17 digs and Emily Greer had eight kills and 25 digs.

Bellingham (9-5, 7-5) was led by Anna Zeegers’ three aces and 12 kills. Cassidy Fulton had 20 digs and 32 aces, Jocelyn Johnson had six blocks, Sophia Lawerence added 28 digs and Summer Douglas had 11 kills.

“Our goal was to get to districts, but we thought we could come away with a win tonight,” Bellingham coach Kim Bjorklund said in a phone interview. “We know we’re capable of playing with the best.”
