Volleyball and soccer news…..

Other news on this Saturday and we start with some volleyball.

Mount Si High School sports fans will have to wait for their first chance to see the Wildcats play in the new high school gymnasium.

The Wildcat volleyball team was set to host the first-ever Mount Si sports event in the new gym on Monday. But some complications have forced the contest, scheduled against Kentlake, to be moved to Kentlake High School down in Covington, with the same time schedule as previously announced – 5:45 for the junior varsity and “C” team matches with the varsity to follow at 7:15. Mount Si is set to host Interlake next Thursday, but that game could also be moved. We’ll keep you posted.

College action:
