Volleyball Earns a Ninth Place Finish at Nationals

The Lady ‘Yotes ended the best season in the volleyball program’s history with a ninth place finish at the NAIA National Championships in Columbia, Mo. on Friday. The team won 22 games in a row before falling to two time national champion Cal Baptist. The 'Yotes' season ended with a defeat from Columbia College. The loss marked the end to a remarkable year and the final collegiate match for a trio of Yotes. Seniors Erin Cherrington, Michelle Riordan, and Aubrey Nielsen saw their careers come to a close in snowy Missouri. Cherrington, the Cascade Conference and NAIA Region I Player of the Year, capped her career with 37 assists and seven digs - giving her 5,253 assists and 1,120 digs in 459 games. Congratulations on a job well done!
