VOLLEYBALL: Cardinals claim Eastern Region Championship as they defeat Spokane on sophomore night


The Cardinals finished their last home game Friday, Nov. 1 against Community College of Spokane, as they recognized four special sophomores: Hannah McPhetridge, Chloe Knudson, Monique Johnson and Kynzey Mitzel. North Idaho College will be sad to see these young ladies go and wish them the best in their future endeavors. The girls were able to enjoy a thrilling game last Friday and get one last W on their home court.

The Cardinals jumped off to a great start in the first set and found themselves ahead by four right away. The Sasquatches fought back and made it a head-to-head battle until the end but the Cardinals claimed the first set, 25-21. With a second close set, the Cardinals found a way to win, 25-23. In the third set, NIC came out flat after intermission and fell short to lose the third, 22-25. With the crowd behind them and great ball control, the Cardinals finished the night off with a win; final score 25-20.

“It was such a great game for our sophomores to enjoy their last time playing in front of their home crowd. I am so proud of how well they came out and stayed steady the whole game. They had a great time playing with one another and it showed. I would like to thank our fans this year for all their support,” said NIC Volleyball Head Coach Kelsey Stanley.

North Idaho College has clinched the Eastern Region Championship by defeating second-ranked Spokane. The Cardinals finish this week on the road against, Blue Mountain Community College, Thursday Nov. 7, and Treasure Valley Community College, Friday, Nov. 8.


Final scores: 25-21, 25-23, 22-25, 25-20
