Showdown With Bellevue Up Next for Volleyball
Edmonds CC volleyball took care of business last week, winning matches over Everett CC (3-0) and Skagit Valley College (3-2) to put themselves in a position to be co-North Region champions. Edmonds CC cruised past Everett in straight sets on sophomore night November 1. On Friday, November 3 the Tritons rebounded after trailing 2-1 in Mount Vernon, mounting a comeback to improve their region record to 9-2.
Tuesday's road tilt at the first-place Bellevue College Bulldogs will determine whether the Bulldogs will take the region crown outright, or if the Tritons will earn a share of the title for the first time since 2008. Bellevue swept the Tritons at Edmonds in the only match between the two teams earlier this season.

If Edmonds is able to defeat first-place Bellevue on Tuesday, they will not only earn a share of the North Region title, but will take the No. 1 seed from the region because of this year's tiebreaker.
