Historic night for Wildcat JV volleyball as Wildcats close regular season against Liberty

The final night of the regular season for Mount Si’s volleyball program brought with it a little history.

Wildcat junior varsity finishes season with historic accomplishment: an undefeated league record
It was well-earned to be sure, but Mount Si’s junior varsity team outlasted Liberty in a three-set sweep, 27-25, 25-23, 15-7, to finish the Kingco season undefeated at 14-0 and overall at 16-3.

As has been the case all season, everyone contributed to the efforts. Brooke Covello led the way with five kills, eight digs, two aces and an assist for Mount Si, and Ellie Morris helped pace the Wildcat efforts with two kills, five assists and five digs. Anna Gomersall provided a nice contribution with five digs, an ace and an assist, while Scout Turner pitched in two kills, four assists and a dig to aid the Mount Si cause.

A number of other players, such as Jordan Tedeschi, Fabiola Reyes, Katie Navidi, Sophie Click and Hannah Green also contributed to the Wildcat efforts as they held tough to score the historic victory.

Mount Si varsity makes short work of Pats
The Wildcat varsity had to work extra hard to beat Liberty the last time these two teams played October 2; Mount Si won that match in five very tough sets. Last night, Mount Si’s varsity once again showed the improvements of their play in the second half, making quick work of the Pats.

Mount Si rolled to the three-set sweep, 25-14, 25-21, 25-16, to move into the postseason as the second seed to the Kingco Tournament. Lindsay Carr led the way with 12 kills, eight assists, six aces, four digs and ½ block as the Wildcats finished the season 11-3 in league, 18-8 overall. Anna McCreadie aided the efforts with nine kills, 11 assists and 10 digs for Mount Si, who also got a solid performance from Liz Larson, who added three kills, two assists, seven digs and an ace.

Covello played in her first varsity action of the season, and based on how she played, look for her to play a factor in the postseason. The sophomore had six digs, two kills and an ace, providing a nice contribution to the efforts. Haley Holmberg also had a nice game, as did Jenn Rogers; Holmberg finished with eight digs, an ace and a block, while Rogers added six digs and an ace to the efforts.

The Wildcats will next play Thursday night in the Kingco Tournament. This year, it is at Juanita High School, and Mount Si will meet Bellevue, Juanita or Interlake in that semifinal matchup. The Wildcats, with their second seed, earned a first-round bye and will play in the SeaKing District Tournament next week regardless of the results of the Kingco tourney.

Mount Si’s match will start at 7:30 p.m. and there will also be action Saturday afternoon depending on the Wildcats’ results Thursday.

Wildcat “C” team ends season on down note
Mount Si’s “C” team ended the season with a loss, 23-25, 25-23, 18-16 to the Patriots. Eight girls from the Wildcats recorded solid efforts, led by the 27 digs, three aces and an assist from Hannah Curd. Kendall Schmitt paced the efforts for Mount Si with five digs, three assists and three aces, while Emily Cole added four kills, eight digs and three aces to help the cause for the Wildcats.

Allie Urbasich had a good game, with a kill, five assists, four digs and two aces, while Mary Zanas pitched in five digs and a kill to aid scarlet and gray. Madison Parrott had a good effort as well with seven kills and five digs, and Kate Kirschner and Vivien Zoller each added a dig apiece to help their Wildcat team.

Both the “C” and junior varsity seasons have now come to an end, but Mount Si’s “C” team held up well, finishing above .500 this season.
