West Seattle fought a good fight but surrendered in battle to Chief Sealth, in three, competitive sets, marking a 25-23, 25-22, 25-20, match sweep for the Seahawks on the Wildcats' gym floor in Metro 'Valley' League action Monday Oct. 20.
Chief Sealth improved to a 5-2 record while West Seattle dropped to 4-3 in league. One more game for both these teams on Wednesday before a seeding game on Thursday propels them into Saturday's Metro League Tournament, with 16 teams in the three divisions, Valley, Sound, Mountain, competing for spots into the following weekend's district tournament.
"Always tough when we play West Seattle," said Seahawks coach, Lorna Considine. "Especially when coming on their last home game and seniors night. You never know what is going to happen. They definitely never gave up."
It was a three-set sweep of games for the Seahawks, but the Wildcats were in every single game, losing by no more than five points in any of the three miniature battles, if one wants to think about the finer details of why this match wasn't over until it was over, even with the word 'sweep' in there.More ›
