SHINING IN COLLEGE: Brooklyn Rainer to continue athletic career at Ottawa College…
It has been another sensational volleyball season for the Spokane Falls Lady Sasquatch and outside hitter Brooklyn Rainer. For the second straight season, the Sasquatch have won the Northwest Athletic Conference volleyball championship. And, for the second consecutive season, Brooklyn has been a hammer in the front row for the league champs.
Brooklyn finished her sophomore season at the NWAC Tournament in the Tacoma Convention Center with a three-set win over Pierce College to again collect the championship trophy. The Lady Sasquatch defeated Lower Columbia College (Longview), Whatcom College (Bellingham), Treasure Valley College (Ontario, OR.) and Lane College (Eugene, OR.) on their way to the title game. The Sasquatch were 12-2 in league play this season, 36-2 overall.
In addition, Brooklyn was selected as a first team all-conference player after leading her team at the net with 398 kills. She averaged 3.43 kills per set spread over 37 matches. She also had 56 digs, which is a lot for a front row player. More
