Mount Si volleyball rebounds from slow start to defeat Eastlake, plus news from CHS and the college front…
KingCo 4A volleyball has been no easy task for the Mount Si girls’ volleyball team. And that was very much the case last night, as the Wildcats overcame a very sluggish opening half of the match and rallied back to stun visiting Eastlake in what turned out to be a five-set thriller at Mount Si High School. Scores were 23-25, 18-25, 25-21, 25-17, 15-11 as the Wildcats fought back and were able to maintain their hold on a share of first place in the league going into the final week of regular season play next week.
 
“This season has been about building character and the season has also been about you play like you prepare,” said Mount Si coach Bonnie Foote. Noting that her team’s practice did not go well on Tuesday leading into last night’s match, Foote felt that had something to do with the poor start by the Wildcats. “This is a true example of you play the way you prepare,” she said.
 
As noted, it was not a good beginning for Mount Si in either of the first two frames. Eastlake and the Wildcats both struggled in the opening stanza to get any sort of flow going, but the Wolves did just slightly more and were able to close the door. A kill by senior outside hitter Jordan Dahl, who played stellar all match long, locked it up for Eastlake in the opening set.
