The Lady Dolphin Volleyball Team battled hard on Tuesday night in the SCC Gym, but still dropped a 3-0 match to Bellevue College, 25-23, 25-19 and 29-27.
SCC could have won either the first or third set, as both games were close throughout and the SCC served 3 times with set point in their favor in the 3rd set, but Bellevue hung tough and showed why they are region champs in 2012 to win the match.
SCC was lead by Emily Denim with 16 kills on the night followed by Arianna Garcia with 14. Jalyn Anderson had 41 assists from her setter position.
SCC's lone sophomore, Laruen Deatrick was honored before the match and she led the Dolphins in digs with 17 on the night.
Both Shoreline and Bellevue advance to the NWAACC Volleyball Championship next at Mt. Hood Community College in Oregon. SCC finished third in the NWAACC Northern Region behind Bellevue and Olympic who tied for first place.
SCC finished the regular season at 14-18 overall, but 8-4 in the region. Bellevue is 27-9 overall and 11-1 in the region.
The Dolphins will face Green River Community College next Thursday at the NWAACC Championship at 4:30pm in the opening round. GRCC finished 2nd in the NWAACC Western Division.
