Wildcat volleyball makes it two-for-two against arch-rivals and sweeps Kingco regular season and tourney titles as result, 10-29

Monday, the Mount Si volleyball team scored a Kingco regular season crown by beating their arch-rivals from Mercer Island. Last night, the Wildcats were looking to take the Kingco Tournament crown by beating the Islanders again, and thanks to the efforts once again of their top players, Mount Si made it two-for-two.

The Wildcats scored a 25-18, 21-25, 25-19, 25-17 win over MI at Sammamish High School in Bellevue to win the tourney and the #1 seed from Kingco into the SeaKing District Tournament. Mount Si will meet either Bainbridge or Blanchet from the Metro League in the SeaKing quarterfinals Thursday night at Sammamish. First serve is scheduled for 7:30 p.m.

Sophomore Lyndsay Carr and senior Sarah McDonald both led the way for the Wildcats. Carr delivered 12 kills and 10 digs, while McDonald added 11 kills, nine aces and nine digs to pace Mount Si’s effort. Junior libero Rachel Hayford continued to play well, logging 17 digs to help the Wildcat attack. That effort was also aided by a strong night from junior Lauren Smith, who had 31 assists.

Juniors Kailey Capelouto and Lexie Read won honorable mention awards from the league in the postseason honors released Thursday; those two showed why last night. Capelouto (six kills, six digs) and Read (four kills, three digs) both had strong performances to help Mount Si.
