A nice turnout, including a large student contingent supporting both schools made for a lively Wednesday night as Chief Sealth played host to neighborhood rival West Seattle High in an early season volleyball tilt, that saw the Seahawks prevail in three straight games.

For the Seahawks it began with an early game 1 run and ended with emphasis in the 3rd when Jill Kumasaka dug a Wildcat spike off the floor, flipping it back over the net for for the match's deciding point.
In between saw an intense and hard fought outing, and despite Sealth playing from ahead for the majority of the evening, no team ever really seemed to have control of the momentum.
“We figured it was going to be a battle, it's always a battle with West Seattle,” Chief Sealth head coach Lorna Considine said.

The first game of the night was marked by a series of beautiful rallys, the best of which lasting nearly a minute was finalized by a Lydia Giomi kill that would give West Seattle a 2-0 lead.

It took a bit of time, but the Class 1A Nisqually League Seattle Christian Warriors' volleyball team finally reached the right direction to flow past visiting Class 3A Seamount League High School in three non-league sets on Mon., Sept. 15, in SeaTac.

"I'm pleased and excited with this group of girls," said Seattle Christian head coach Aubrey Fox. "We've got some great senior leadership and young players stepping up to the jobs. We started slowly, but I'm proud of how they kept going. Once they got the flow and communication, they controlled the pace."

In the stuffy confines of the non-air conditioned gymnasium, the teams began the first set on equal terms and stayed that way for the duration of the set. Unforced Warrior errors and a quick starting Pirate squad led to exchanges of mini-runs after HHS posted leads of 5-1 and 9-5. Showing more continuity, the Pirates increased their lead to 11-6 with Joslyn Luidebina's drop shot keying the final two Highline points.

Early attack mode sent the Nisqually 1A League Seattle Christian Warriors' girls' soccer team into an early lead en route to a deceivingly close 3-2 non-conference win against the visiting Evergreen Conference 2A W.F. West (Chehalis) Bearcats at Valley Ridge Park field No. 3 on Tues., Sept. 15.

"We had some good passing early," said Tanna Brinkman. "Then, we were able to keep getting good shots on goal."

Aggressively pursuing the ball, the Warriors peppered the Bearcat goal regularly with shots and kept the visitors on their heels from the outset.

The constant pressure paid off in an unassisted Megan Nielsen (who was celebrating her birthday) goal in the 10th minute.

As the home team poured in shot after shot, the W.F. West keeper Kyndra Haller strove mightily to prevent the onslaught of shots out of goal.
By the 20th minute, the tired Bearcat defenders yielded a second goal.
Morgan Gaston cleared to take a nice pass from Isabella Responte and quickly nailed another SC goal.

With the interval times between shots lessening, Responte deposited her own goal in the 25th minute.

Mount Rainier Rams head football coach Tremain Mack did anything but bury his face in his hands after a close 19-7 loss to the Bethel Braves this past Friday,

"Overall we played a decent game, just not enough to win," said Mack, whose team was knotted with the visitors from Graham, 7-7, at halftime. "We played well. We just didn't take advantage of our opportunites. We had a couple of missed turnovers there."

The Rams even ran out to an early lead in the action at Highline Memorial.

Senior running back Renato Contreras punched the ball in on the left side from the 3-yard line, capping off an 11-play drive that began on the Mount Rainier 34.

Tyler Keene's kick for the extra point then successfully slipped through the uprights to put Mount Rainier on top, 7-0, with 10:20 to play in the second quarter.

The Braves evened the score with 6:51 to go.

Quarterback Bryce Missey struck on a 1-yard keeper and Teddy Tate kicked the extra point.

Bethel then marched 71 yards on the opening drive of the third quarter, with Eli Teuteu scoring on a run from the 5-yard line with 6:33 left.
