West Seattle Volleyball wrap up on an amazing season

The volleyball season is over but the state tournament lies ahead and Joe Baleto, WSHS Volleyball Coach offered his thoughts on an amazing season for his team.

"We just wrapped up our last regular season match this last Wednesday the 17th against rival school Chief Sealth,and it was senior night to boot !! We went undefeated in the Metro Sound Division with a perfect record of 12-0,overall we went 12-3. Congrats to the 2012 Metro Sound Division Champs !!!

Baleto acknowledged four seniors Ellen Cleveland, Maddie Collins who according to the coach were instrumental in the success of the volleyball program, both are 3-peat MSD champs and seniors Nanna Darden & Athena Lamyuen.

"Our girls also acknowledged the Sealth seniors that evening too, which I thought was a very class act."

The lady Wildcats will be preparing for the Metro tournament taking place at Chief Sealth on October 27th starting at 11am.

"We will be led by outstanding Junior outside hitter Eastyn Baleto, who has had an incredible year thus far,and will be helped by Sophomore sensation outside hitter Aspen Knowles."

Baleto said that the Metro tournament is considered one of the toughest Leagues to get out of, to qualify for Districts, then on to State. He said that nine out of the last twelve years the 3A State Champ has come from our league.

"We have tough task ahead of us, but I have all the confidence in this team.We will make some noise at METRO's.We need all the support as we continue our journey to the State Tourney."
