LYNNWOOD – The Edmonds volleyball team fell in five sets to visiting Bellevue Friday night in Seaview Gym (26-24, 25-12, 20-25, 21-25, 15-8). The Tritons will finish out the regular season on Tuesday when they host Olympic College at 7 p.m. EdCC sophomores will be recognized prior to the contest.
Friday’s loss was a tough one for the Tritons because they had a great chance to win the opening set and possibly the match. The first eventually went to the Bulldogs in extra points 26-24.
Bellevue cruised through the second set and it seemed at that point that BC would finish off EdCC in three. But the Tritons rallied and claimed the next two sets to push the match to a deciding fifth set. The Bulldogs would take the fifth, though 15-8, and the match.
EdCC outside hitter Carly Sims led all players with 18 kills and also had 7 digs. She was the only Triton to record double-figure winners, though three others: Gabi Mahler, Riley Stewart and Amelia McArthur had five kills. Mahler also had 10 digs and three aces.
Delaney Watson registered 14 assists, four aces and five digs with Mariah Martin dishing out 20 assists.
The Tritons had 8.5 team blocks, led by 6 total blocks from Megan Tran. EdCC hit .135 as a team to BC’s 142. The Bulldogs accumulated more kills (52-41), assists (50-41) and digs (60-54) than did Edmonds.
