Wildcat volleyball and soccer both get wins last night

As promised earlier, we have last night’s Mount Si volleyball wrapup. A big win for the varsity against Kentwood and we have the highlights:

Wildcat varsity scores sweep: Mount Si’s varsity just 24 hours prior, as we mentioned earlier, fell in four sets to Kentlake, but last night they rebounded rather nicely, and perhaps put a smile on the face of coach Bonnie Foote, as the Wildcats rolled to a three-set sweep of Kentwood 25-18, 25-21, 25-21. Dana Dolan powered Mount Si, netting 18 assists and 10 digs along with a kill and 1/2 block. Kira Holmberg pitched in two aces and 13 digs while Bailey Showalter added eight kills, 10 digs, two assists and three aces.

Mount Si JV falls: The Wildcat JV’s were unable to recover from a slow start last night and fell to the Conquerors 25-8, 26-24, 10-15. Katrice Dunn had 10 assists and two blocks while Peyton MacKenzie delivered nine kills, four digs and an assist.

Wildcat “C” team swept: Mount Si’s “C” team, the only victor of the three Mount Si teams competing Monday at Kentlake, could not build off that success last night, falling to Kentwood in a 25-14, 25-16, 15-13 sweep. Ella Lamoureux had seven digs leading the Wildcats, while Marisol Gutierrez added a kill, assist, four digs and two aces and Maya Assefa pounded out a kill, a dig and two aces. Eden Coleman also contributed an assist, an ace and three digs to the efforts for scarlet and gray.

The “C” team is in a tournament today at Kent-Meridian High School in Kent, so fatigue after playing two games in two nights could become a factor for the girls today. And it doesn’t get any easier for all three teams as they are back on the floor tomorrow to host the first-ever Mount Si athletic event in the new gym. “C” and JV games against Interlake go at 5:15 with the varsity at 7:00.

Kendal Forrest scored the game’s lone goal for Mount Si in the early portion of proceedings, then the Wildcat defense took over and held off Bothell 1-0 in the Kingco 4A opener for both teams last night at Mount Si High School. Forrest’s goal was assisted by Sydney Dunn, who had the goal for the Wildcats in their lightning-shortened game 1-1 last Saturday with Curtis that opened their season, also at home.

Coach Sophie Rockow was pleased with the performance. “Start to finish we played with intensity, energy, and speed, and for the majority of the game we held possession,” Rockow told us by email. “We were able to play dynamically and cut Bothell up with connected passes, both direct and indirect. We’ve got a lot of speed up front, so it was fun to release them and let them run.

Mount Si is on the road for the next two games – tomorrow at Emerald Ridge down in Puyallup and Saturday in Tacoma against Stadium – then returns to league play next week.
