Mt. Hood makes it 11 in a row with win at Clackamas


by: THE OUTLOOK: DAVID BALL - Mt. Hoods Kayci Kitzmiller reacts after the Saints scored a point in the opening set Friday at Clackamas.

OREGON CITY — The Mt. Hood CC volleyball team stretched its win streak to 11 matches Friday night with a 25-23, 25-18, 25-11 sweep over rival Clackamas.

The Saints climbed out of a late three-point hole to take the opening set. Kylie Kitzmiller brought the Saints within striking distance with a powerful kill that went straight down on the other side. She also converted set point when the Cougars floated a pass over the middle of the net, and Kitzmiller was the first player off her feet to tip a winner over a pair of Clackamas blockers.

“We didn’t want to come out here and make it a struggle, so getting that first one was important” Kitzmiller said. “We really stuck together as a team. We never gave up on a ball, and we never gave up on each other.”

Barlow High graduate Lihau Perreira served out the last four points of the set.

Mt. Hood (28-9) can finish a perfect run through the South Region with a win at Chemeketa on Wednesday.
