The Tulalip Heritage Hawks volleyball team opened up league play as they took on the Arlington Christian Knights in a tight game on Sept. 13.

In the first set the Hawks came out as one unit and fed off of each other as the Knights seemed to not be on the same page. With a few errors in their favor, Tulalip Heritage came out on top with a score of 25-21.

The next three games were a different story as the Knights seemed to find their groove and played at a higher level. The Hawks stayed strong and kept the first two games close by scores of 25-23 and 25-21, respectively. However, in the last game Arlington Christian took over as they finalized their victory 25-15.

"You always hope for the best with these kids and it was great to get a win in the first game, especially against a really good team. It's a relief for me because these girls have been working really hard," said Arlington Christian Head Coach Fred Hernandez.

The Knights return with a senior heavy roster as Olivia Hernandez and Naomi Huss lead the experienced group. With five returning seniors this season, the Knights have big goals moving forward.

"It's about communication, they need to talk. They are trying to, but when we have the newer girls out there it makes it hard to be precise and effective. Everyone has to be ready, we have to be ready," said Tulalip Heritage Head Coach Tina Brown.

Tulalip Heritage also returns a handful of seniors, and also welcomes some first-year players that have joined their rotations. Keryn Parks is the player to watch out for as she enters her senior year as the leader on and off the court.

If you want to catch the next home game for Tulalip Heritage, they will be playing against the Cedar Park Christian Lions on Sept. 21, at 5 p.m. Or if you want to come out to support Arlington Christian, they are competing at home against Shoreline Christian on the same day and time.
