VOLLEYBALL (1-10, 6-24)

What a week.  Four matches in six days to end the regular season.  Monday the Knights lost to Spokane 3-0 in the Lilac City, and now play today on the road and then finish with home matches Friday and Saturday.  Busy.


Wednesday, Walla Walla (8-3, 24-12) away.

This is the final road trip of the season for WVC.  Today they venture to Walla Walla to take on the third-place Warriors.  Last month WWCC beat the Knights 3-1 in W.B. Smith Gym to extend their string of wins over Wenatchee to five.  Walla Walla leads the series 11-6 and 5-4 in the Southeast corner of the state.


Friday, Big Bend (5-7, 11-21) home.

The Hawks fly into town Friday.  In October Big Bend broke a 13-match Wenatchee Valley win streak in the series by winning 3-1 in Moses Lake. BBCC is in a battle with Columbia Basin for the fourth playoff spot in the East Region.  Overall WVC lead the series 13-2 and is 5-1 at home.


Saturday, Treasure Valley (3-9, 11-17) home.

The season concludes with a visit by Treasure Valley Saturday afternoon.  This series has been back and forth with neither team ever having more than a one-game lead.  They are currently knotted a seven apiece following the Chukars league opening win at Ontario.
