Tuesday Home Match with Tahoma

Come out and cheer the Falcons to victory over Tahoma on Tuesday. The JV and Freshman contests are at 6pm followed by the Varsity at 7:15pm. Tahoma is a deceptive 1-4 on the season with losses to SPSL South powers Rogers and Curtis and to Kentwood. It should be a good match.

We need people to help with concessions for JV/Freshman (a JV parent could still watch the game while doing concessions) and scorebook for the Freshman game.

We also need lines for JV and Varsity.

Reminder: There is a home match against Auburn on Thursday.

Whitworth Volleyball Match Video

A link to the video is available at This is the opening of NW Conference play for the Pirates. They went 1-3 last weekend but played a very tough schedule at the Cal-Lu-Fornia Tournament at Cal Lutheran, sweeping #6 :a Verne but losing to #7 Trinity and #23 Cal Lutheran in five games.

Don't forget that tomorrow is International Talk Like a Pirate Day!

Varsity Swept by Newport

The Kentlake Varsity lost 3-0 to Newport, 25-23, 25-19, 25-20. JV lost 2-1 (21-25, 25-10, 15-13) but the Freshman team improved to 2-0 sweeping Newport, 25-19, 25-21, 15-10.

Volunteers Needed

We need volunteers to help during all the home games this year. The first home match is next Thursday. The freshman and JV matches are usually at the same time, so it would be great to have Varsity parents that would help at 6pm for those, and then to have Freshman and JV parents stick around to help during the Varsity matches at 7:15pm. This way everyone helps and everyone gets to watch their kids play.

We need scorekeepers, scorebook, lines, libero tracker (probably the easiest job), ticket sellers (must be a PTSA member) and concessions (also must be a PTSA member).

Don't worry if you don't know how to do something, we can easily train you.

Please send your preferences on what you want to do to Tami Kyle (ladyblue-55 "at" Please volunteer to help today. We need everyone's support.

We Have Pictures!

Ward Honbo, Devyn on the Freshman team's dad, has uploaded pictures to Flickr and sent us a link. Check out his pictures of the Freshman team's game against Roosevelt. We encourage anyone else with game pictures to upload to Flickr or a similar service and send us the link to share. It only takes a few minutes and it is free.

Tweeters Needed

We need volunteers, particularly from the Freshman or JV parents, that are willing to tweet (send text messages from their cell phones to our Twitter account) in-game updates. If you are willing, please send a message to "kentlakevb at" and we will get you signed up.
