SLIDESHOW: Sealth girls lose all three sets to Ballard in volleyball match

The Sealth Seahawk girls played hard in their volleyball match against the Ballard Beavers Monday, Sept. 10 but effort doesn't always equal winning. Despite a strong athletic performance, the Seahawks dropped all three sets to Ballard, 30-28, 25-18, 25-18.

It could be considered pre-season for volleyball but tonight’s non-league matchup between the girls of Ballard and the Chief Sealth Lady Hawks had the feel of a game that counts.

Sealth hung close in every match, with two decided by 2 points, but this is a young team with very little time together and Sealth coach Lorna Considine feels they will gel as the season progresses. “I thought they played well” said Considine.

Ballard coach Tami Reese had a more pointed view of her team. Even after the win she thought her team “still needs to work on fundamentals”. She did make note of two of her standouts. Team captain and Center McKinley Kellog was a “great force” in the middle all game long and Liza Berg had 17 kills.

Non-league play continues on Wednesday when Arlington comes to Ballard and Sealth plays another home game against Rainier Beach.
