Thunderbirds Close Out Regular Season With a Win
Team Faces Chemeketa in First Round of Playoffs

Nov. 14: In its last match of the regular season, Highline came out flatter than a pancake run over by a steamroller. The Thunderbirds, having already secured a playoff spot, lost the first set to the un-playoff bound Pierce Raiders 21-25 and then fell behind in the second set. The last home appearance of Highline’s six sophomores was turning into a gloomy affair. Then the switch turned on and the T-Birds began asserting themselves, rallying to take the second set and then finishing off the Raiders 21-25, 25-23, 25-18, 27-25 (box). Highline was led by Danielle Tabor’s 16 kills, Alexa Toth’s 37 sets, and 17 digs apiece by Haley Lusher and Leone Tanielu. The playoff-bound Thunderbirds ends the regular season at 31-15 and 11-3 in league play, 2nd place in the NWAC West Division.

The playoffs will mark the final matches for graduating sophomores Haley Lusher, Jessica Markham, Megan Smith Danielle Tabor, Leone Tanielu, and Alexa Toth. Over their very successful two years at Highline, the team went 53-27 (24-4 in league), a first and second place finish in the NWAC West Division, and two playoff appearances.

The NWAC Volleyball Championship Tournament takes place from Nov. 20-23 at the Greater Tacoma Convention and Trade Center. Highline’s first playoff appearance is against Chemeketa on Nov. 20 at 4:30 pm. (Full Details of the Tournament)
