Just like they have many times this season, the Falcon volleyball team started things fast. But it’s the time after those hot starts that’s tripped up South Whidbey.

The Falcons fell to King’s, 25-21, 25-19, 25-23 on Thursday during Breast Cancer Awareness night at South Whidbey High School.

Sporting pink shirts that read, “Dig for a Cure,” South Whidbey jumped out to a quick start in the first set. But unforced errors allowed King’s to take the lead midway through the set, which they never relinquished.

South Whidbey battled King’s in the third set and took an early lead of 4-1, but more unforced errors allowed the Knights to go ahead.

“I’m a little disappointed,” said head coach Mandy Jones. “We had little spurts of moments where we were playing really well and fighting and then we would make some errors and we couldn’t come back from it.”

In support of breast cancer patients and survivors, the team raised money for Tereese Miller, who beat breast cancer eight months ago. Miller is also the mother of Falcon player Megan Miller, and served as the Falcons’ guest coach.

“It goes to a great cause,” Jones said. “It’s even better having a team mom that we can give the money to that we know is in need of it from medical bills.”
