Big tournament on Saturday for Mount Si volleyball

The Mount Si High School girls’ volleyball team is in action Saturday, at one of the bigger local Saturday high school tournaments on the fall calendar.

The Wildcats will be competing once again in the Kent Classic, hosted by Kentwood and Kentlake High Schools. This tournament has become a favorite of Mount Si coach Bonnie Foote, as the team has played in this tournament several times over the years, including last season.

The tournament will start at 8:00am Saturday morning, with Mount Si not seeing action until 9:00, at Kentlake High School. They are in a pool with Kamiak and Olympia. Several other Kingco 4A teams are in this year’s tournament, including Bothell, Newport, Inglemoor, Eastlake, Skyline and Issaquah.

Each match will be two sets each, first to 25 points in rally scoring format will win a set. A second round of pool play will take place in the afternoon, with playoffs to follow. Where the Wildcats will play for those later rounds will be determined by how they do in the morning session.

Fans interested in seeing the morning action tomorrow, to get to Kentlake from the Valley, take SR 18 from Snoqualmie to Maple Valley, and exit at the SR 169 exit; make your way over to the highway and turn right going south. Head south on 169 to the Kent-Kangley Road intersection, and once there turn right. Head west on Kent-Kangley to 216th Ave. SE and turn left. Follow south on 216th, and it will make a left turn and become SE 296th St. Just after this turn will be 219th Ave. SE, once there turn right. The road will make a right turn and become Southeast Falcon Way; the school will be on your left shortly thereafter. Admission is likely to be charged so be prepared to pay that once you arrive.
