Columbia Basin College’s volleyball team lost in three sets on the road to Spokane on Friday night, but it might not be a loss.
“Spokane suited up too many players,” said CBC coach Mike Baker. “You can only suit up 12 players in NWAACC play, and they had 15.”
Baker notified the NWAACC, and said he’ll wait for a response.
As for the match, Kelly Madson led CBC with six kills and seven digs.
Meanwhile, Wenatchee beat Big Bend on Friday night, making the Vikings 5-9 in East Region play.
CBC is 5-8 and plays host to Yakima Valley on Wednesday.
A victory by the Hawks would give them the No. 4 East seed into the NWAACC Championship tournament later this month.
But a loss would create a three-way tie for fourth between CBC, Big Bend and YVC, with a likely playoff to determine the No. 4 seed.
Set scores: Spokane won 25-17, 25-19, 25-15. CBC—Kelly Madson 6 kills, 7 digs; Callie Hanson 10 assists; Kylie Ibias 7 assists; Katie Griffith 6 digs.
BLUE MOUNTAIN 3, WALLA WALLA 0: Pasco High graduate Sierra Linke had 10 kills to help host Blue Mountain sweep Walla Walla in an NWAACC East region match.
Set scores: 25-17, 25-17, 25-15. Walla Walla—Breanna Mehling 15 assists. Blue Mountain—Kendra De Hoog 13 kills; Sierra Linke 10 kills; Samantha Odren 24 assists; Abigail Pennecard 17 kills.
