The volleyball team is two for two as the team travels to Colorado for the Colorado College Invitational this weekend.

The women face off on Friday and Saturday against Wheaton College, Eastern University and nationally ranked Colorado College.

It’s the women’s last weekend to get matches in preseason before conference starts against Pacific University at home on Sept. 15.

Linfield’s last matches were at the Boxer Kickoff hosted by Pacific. The women brought their A-game as they won two of three


Juniors Samantha Lau and Tara Hill and sophomore Cora Hall all led the team to a victory.

The women had a good comeback from losing their first home match against Northwest Christian University, 22-25, 25-21, 25-14

and 25-15. Although it was a sad loss for the Wildcats, it was a night of celebration for coach Shane Kimura as he coached his 1,000th

match that night. Lau and junior Bethany Dickey tied for 17 digs that night.
