ONTARIO, Ore. — The Treasure Valley College volleyball team might be winless, but that doesn’t mean that Wenatchee Valley College was taking anything for granted heading into its Saturday road match against the Chukars.
“I was a little nervous,” said WVC coach Kelly Ketcham. “Yakima came in here (Friday) and Treasure Valley took them to five sets. I was expecting a tough battle.”
At times, the Chukars did give the Knights the battle that Ketcham was expecting, but WVC still managed to pull out a win it absolutely needed to have.
The Knights won 25-19, 25-23 25-20 to even their Northwest Athletic Association of Community Colleges East Region record at 6-6. They remain tied for fourth place in the East with the Yaks; the region’s top four teams qualify for the NWAACC tournament.
WVC finishes its regular season with No. 4 Walla Walla on Wednesday and Big Bend on Saturday.
Chancy Gill led the Knights with nine kills agianst Treasure Valley.
“The second set was the one which I felt like we probably could’ve won a little earlier,” Ketcham said. “We made a service error at the point at which I thought we’d close it out. But the team buckled down and got it done.”
