Volleyball spoils Whatcom's pefect league record on sophomore night
LYNNWOOD -- Edmonds CC volleyball is peaking at the right time. The Tritons celebrated four sophomores in Seaview Gym on November 6, and put a cap on the season with a 3-0 sweep of division leader Whatcom CC. The win spoiled the Orcas chance at a perfect league record in 2019 -- something Edmonds did one year ago.
The win brings the team's record to 27-12 overall; they finished North Region play 9-3 on a five-game win streak. Whatcom still earned the North Region crown and completed the regular season 20-8 with a 11-1 mark in the North.
FIRST SET — [25-17] After an evenly-fought start to the match, Sarah Gauna riffled down her first kill of the night to open the lea-d to 7-5. She would finish the night with six kills. Ceirra Dean followed up with an ace to extend the lead to 8-5. The Tritons opened up another lead with a big kill from middle blocker Danika Brown. Sadie Gardner was a force the entire night and added seven kills in the first set -- none bigger than the two that extended the lead to 21-16 when she scored back-to-back points. Gardner ended the Orcas hope of a first set comeback with the final kill.
SECOND SET — [25-13] Gardner showed up early again in the second set with three of the first four Triton points. Trailing 6-4, Dean led the Tritons on a huge run, serving five times in a row which led to five Triton points. After an Orca timeout, Dean struck again with her second ace of the night. The Tritons built and maintained a five-point lead throughout the second set. Their lead grew again when Jerzie Pluid sent a ball hard into the floor to make the score 13-8. Edmonds never looked back in the second act and went on to win 25-13.
THIRD SET — [25-14] The third set started out sluggish as both teams traded errors. Pluid woke the Tritons up with a big block to give Edmonds a 7-6 edge. Pluid then added back-to-back kills to push the lead to 10-7. Sophomore setter Haylee Hooper earned her first kill of the night with a cheeky setter attack to make the score 11-7 and force an Orca timeout. She would finish the night with 29 assists. Later in the set, an ace by sophomore libero Payton Ludwig pushed the score to 17-11 and forced another Orca timeout. Out of the break, Ludwig continued her dominance at the serving stripe. She led the Tritons on a 7-3 run to close out the final set. Sadie Gardner dominated the match with 22 kills.
The 2019 NWAC Championship Tournament starts on Thursday, November 21 at the Tacoma Convention Center. The Tritons are the No. 2 seed from the North and will face Linn-Benton CC (27-10, 13-3 South), the No. 3 seed from the South Region. First serve is set for 2 p.m. It is the fourth consecutive trip to the postseason for the program under Tony Miranda.
There is a new NWAC pay-per-view streaming service this year for all championship events.
The four sophomores who played in their final home match are Audree Weekes, Payton Ludwig, Haylee Hooper and Sadie Gardner. The past two years they've gone 59-20 overall, including 21-3 in North Region action. The two year stretch will go down in program history as one of the most successful ever.

Baseball inducts 2003 championship team
LYNNWOOD -- The 2003 NWAC Baseball Championship team was inducted into the Triton Baseball of Fame on Saturday, November 9 in Seaview Gym.
Donnie Marbut, the former Triton skipper who led the 2002 and 2003 squads to titles, introduced the players and spoke about the team. Marbut was inducted into the HOF as an individual in 2017. Edmonds won 43 games in 2003 and defeated Lower Columbia in extra innings to claim the crown. Double-digit players moved on to four-year universities and three players from the group played professional baseball. At the time, the 43 wins were an NWAC record for wins in a season. It was the seventh year of the event which also features a dinner and silent auction in addition to honoring the alumni and rich tradition of the program. All proceeds from the fundraiser go towards the baseball program.
