VOLLEYBALL: Cardinals have great start to season


North Idaho got off to a great start to their season at the NWAC Friendlies in Eugene, Oregon. The Cardinals started the tournament on Saturday playing Clark College, Centralia College, Bellevue College and finally Lane Community College. 

With each game NIC became more and more confident with themselves and also one another. They walked out of the gym 4-0 Saturday and happy with how they played each opponent.

Clark College:




On Sunday the Cardinals jumped back on the court early to face Skagit Valley Community College and Tacoma Community College. 

Cardinals jumped off to a great start and was able to shut down Skagit Valley easily in two sets. 

Skagit Valley:

NIC finished the weekend with Tacoma, who at the time had only lost one game the whole weekend. The Cardinals started out slow and played very safe, the strategy hurt NIC and they lost the first set. The Cardinals slowly built up momentum and confidence and fighting to push past Tacoma's high energy and finish the weekend off with a win.


“This weekend was a great start for our girls. We learned so much individually and also as a team. It’s so fun and refreshing to watch a team play for one another and not for themselves. I look forward to getting back on the court and working with this group because they are very eager to learn. Our conference once again looks tough this year and we can’t wait to get things rolling,” commented Head Coach, Kelsey Stanley.
