Snohomish, which has high aspirations this season according to its coach, was told Tuesday night's tilt against the Knights was a must-win game. The Panthers responded with a five set (20-25, 25-14, 23-25, 26-24, 15-13) win.
"Our goal is to win our league so we have a chance to go to state this seaon. I told the girls before this game that this is the most important game we've played this season," said Panthers' head coach Alex Tarin. "Their goals are big this year and I told them if they want to reach them they have to win this game. And they did."
Lanesha Reagan helped Snohomish (2-0 league, 5-1 overall) overcome what Tarin called a "slow start." The coach said Reagan, who had 38 kills, 21 digs and six aces, is "definitely our go-to player."
"I believe everyone in the gym, at one point, knew we'd be setting her and Kamiak still had a hard time stopping her," Tarin said.
Kamiak (0-2, 4-2) kept each set close, with the final three back-and-forth sets all won by two points.
"That's volleyball for you," Tarin said.
