Volleyball and football on the plate this morning…..

As we told you yesterday, we’d get stats from Mount Si’s volleyball team and their loss Tuesday to Bothell in the Kingco Tournament, and we have those for you now to lead off our Thursday coverage.

The Wildcats rallied from an 0-2 hole to force a fifth set, but couldn’t close the deal as they fell to the Cougars 25-20, 25-20, 14-25, 18-25, 15-10. A huge game for junior Dana Dolan powered Mount Si. She had a season high 44 assists and 20 digs for the Wildcats, and she had a couple of other strong efforts supporting hers. Bellah Gogan added 18 kills, 18 digs and an assist, while Bailey Showalter pitched in 14 kills and 29 digs along with a block, assist and a pair of aces. Kami Smith also delivered, with 16 digs, five aces and two assists.

Mount Si takes on Jackson in the first round of the Wes-King bi-district tournament Saturday. The match is at Issaquah High School and will start at 4:00 p.m., perfect for those of you who will be attending the football game – you can catch the Wildcat football team at home then head down to support the volleyball girls. The winner of the match meets Issaquah following the completion of the contest.

We by the way will have a scouting report shortly on Jackson for all of you so hang tight this morning for that.

College news from last night:

Valleyite’s double-double leads Whitman College ladies to upset of arch-rival: North Bend’s Emma Anderson had a double-double of 18 assists and 10 digs last night for the Blues, and they needed every last one of those to stun Northwest Conference arch-rival Whitworth at home in Walla Walla 25-23, 25-16, 17-25, 22-25, 15-10, and in the process damaged the postseason hopes for the Pirates in the NCAA Division III conference. Anderson, a freshman from North Bend and June MSHS grad, has become a focal presence for Whitman in recent matches after missing much of the early portion of the season. The Blues with the win moves to 9-14 overall, 5-10 in conference play.

Mount Si football game announced
As we just mentioned, the Mount Si High School football team will be playing on Saturday afternoon. They will be hosting Rogers of Puyallup, who received the #4 seed from the South Puget Sound League following that mini-playoff on Tuesday between them, Sumner and Curtis. Curtis took the #3 seed and will meet Kentwood while Sumner was eliminated from postseason.

The game time is 1:00 p.m. and we’ll have more information for you on the game later here.
