Spokane teams invade the WVC campus today with action in the gym and on the soccer field.
VOLLEYBALL (1-3, 2-12)
Wednesday, Spokane (2-1, 17-8) home.
The team will be trying to duplicate what they did a year ago then they broke a 10-match losing streak to Spokane with a 3-0 victory in W.B. Smith. That was only their second victory over the Sasquatch as today’s visitors lead the series 12-2.
The won over Yakima Valley a week ago put an end to the school record seven-game losing streak.
Standings: Blue Mountain 5-0, Walla Walla 4-0, Spokane 2-1, Big Bend 2-2, Treasure Valley 2-3, Columbia Basin 1-3,
Wenatchee Valley 1-3, Yakima Valley 0-5
MENS SOCCER (1-3-1, 2-4-2)
Wednesday, Spokane (3-1-1, 8-1-2) home.
The Knights have faced the Lilac City school more than any other, 33 times since their first meeting in 1996. The Sasquatch won the first game and the majority since and led WVC 23-7-3. In Wenatchee Spokane is up 10-4-2.
Saturday, Treasure Valley (1-3-1, 1-3-1) away.
This is a series that has gotten away from the Knights. In 2008 WVC was up 9-2-2, but since have tied one and lost eight and now trail 10-9-3. Wenatchee is even with the Chukars in Ontario 5-5-1.
The Knights 2-0 win over Everett a week and a half ago put a stop to two negative streaks. They had lost 14 straight league games (previous school record was eight in 1999). They had 18 straight non-winning games (losses, ties) (previous record was 11 in 1998-99).

WOMENS SOCCER (0-6, 0-8)
Friday, Spokane (3-0-3, 5-0-4) home.
The Sasquatch stomp into town today. The Spokane outfit is the defending East Region champ and NWAACC runner-up. So far this fall they are undefeated, but have played a handful of ties. They lead the series with the Knights 26-5-1, and have dominated the last 11 years with 21 wins in 22 games. They have won nine straight and outscored Wenatchee Valley 48-0 the last four outings.
Saturday, Treasure Valley (0-4-2, 0-4-2) away.
After a long a trip to Ontario the Knights take on another team that begins the week looking for their first win, although the Chukars do have couple of ties. Over the years Treasure Valley has dominated the Knights, posting a 17-3-2 record, and has won five straight. At home TVCC is 9-2.
Since you asked…well, one person did. This is not positive stuff. May want to skip. The soccer program for the women has struggled for four and a half seasons with only eight wins in 78 games. Seven school record losing streaks are currently in play. Non-winning combines losses and ties.
