Volleyball nets two wins

by Sarah McCarthy

It was an excellent weekend for Whitman volleyball, as the women won both of their first home matches.

On Friday night, the team beat George Fox University in a 3-0 win, scoring 30-19 in the first game, 30-18 in the second, and 30-21 in the third.

“Our entire team was in sync for that match,” said sophomore Kristen Brown. “It was one of [setter] Kate Borasto’s better matches.”
Saturday afternoon the team played a closer game against the Lewis and Clark Pioneers, though for that match, too, they went 3-0. The first game was close, and at one point the Missionaries were down 12-20. They stayed focused, didn’t allow themselves to be rattled and came back. Tensions were high as the teams traded points back and forth, but Whitman came out ahead with a 31-29 victory.

The second game stayed close throughout play, with a final score of 30-27.

The third game was a decisive win at 30-22.

“It wasn’t as clean of volleyball as I know we can play,” said Brown. “But we kept plugging away and came back.”
