On Sunday, October 9th the SMCC Seawolves volleyball played a tri-match against CMCC and the University of Maine Fort Kent. The first game was against the CMCC Mustangs. The Seawolves jumped out to an early 9-3 lead on the serving of Emelia Lamie, forcing a Mustang timeout. Coming out of the timeout the Mustangs started to find their stride and go on an 11-2 run to tie the game at 14. SMCC called timeout to stop the rally but out of the timeout, the Mustangs kept on the pressure as well as some unforced errors by the Seawolves led the Mustangs to a 25-21 set 1 win. The Seawolves again jumped out to an early lead and took a 14-4 lead forming a Mustang timeout, this run was led by Anna White. The Mustangs, as they did all day, came out of the timeout firing, cutting the lead down to 6 and forcing Coach Garrett to call timeout. Out of the timeout, it was an even score, point for point, then the Seawolves were at a set point up 24-21. As a result, the coach called timeout as the Mustangs got a couple of points in a row to get 21, so he slowed the game down and calmed the girls down. The Seawolves won the second set, 25-21, tying up this best-of-5 game. In Set three, the Seawolves played a good set but were unable to get the win, losing the set, 25-17. Then the same happened in set Four, where they struggled a little and the Mustangs won the set 25-11 and the game 3-1. But credit has to be given to Emelia Lamie and Breanna Kerr who left it all on the floor and were running and sliding to save balls from hitting the ground.

In game two against Maine Fort Kent, the Seawolves were outmatched. The Bengals of Fort Kent entering Sunday had won 9 straight matches and only lost 3 sets in those matches. The Bengals had just beaten the Mustangs 3-0 and played incredibly. Much was the same against the Seawolves as in set 1, when the Bengals jumped early and often on the way to a 25-7 win. The Seawolves played better in the second set but still came up short, losing 25-15. In Set 3 the Bengals ran with it again on way to a 25-9 win, winning the game 3-0, but again credit has to be given to Emelia Lamie and Breanna Kerr who left it all on the floor and were running and sliding.

all on the floor to save balls from hitting the ground. Kerr even slammed into the bleachers diving for a ball and saved it, so the effort was just outmatched by the Bengals.

The top three-point getters were Rachal Pardi with 6, and Lillian Findlan and Anna White each with 2 against the Bengals. Points from the game against CMCC are not yet posted.
