The Arlington volleyball team took on the Everett Seagulls in a hard-fought match on Oct. 10.

From the first serve the Eagles had to fight for every single point that they earned against the Seagulls. With a late push in the first set Arlington grabbed their first win by a score of 25-21. In the second set the Eagles found themselves in a groove and managed to hold a solid lead for the final score of 25-19.

Everett came out fired up in the third set as they made very few mistakes and began to turn the momentum, blowing out the Eagles 25-12. In the fourth set, it looked like Everett was pulling away, starting the set leading 7-2. Unfortunately, for the Seagulls, Arlington came out of an early timeout and executed the rest of the way as they finished off the match with the set score of 25-19. In the end Arlington came away with the victory, 3-1. The victory brought Arlington's conference record to 9-0 and its overall record to 10-1.

Caroline Diemer, Eagles setter, sets up her teammate for a spike at Arlington High School on Oct. 10.

"It'd be great to win 3-0 every game, like last year, but this season we have to work hard and earn those wins, which is a great feeling. We're always trying to fine tune the basics and each individual's skill in order for everyone to play in our system," said Arlington Head Coach Whitney Williams.

On the offensive end, the sophomore duo of outside hitters Arianna Bilby and Reese Talbot dominated for the Eagles. Bilby finished with a game-high 19 kills while Talbot added on another impressive 15 kills.

Michaela Camlin, Arlington's senior libero, kept a lot of plays alive as she led her team in total digs with 15. With a combination of recovery on defense and aggressiveness on offense the Eagles managed to keep Everett on their heels all game.

If you want to come out and support the Arlington Eagles, they will have their last home match against the Lynnwood Royals on Monday, Oct. 23, at 7 p.m.
