A rough outing for the Alaska Nanooks (2-19) as they were dominated on all facets of the game by Central Washington Wildcats (15-6) on Saturday night as they lost 0-3 on ‘Dig Pink’ night.

The Nanooks did show some flashes of good plays with both outside hitter Sam Harthun and outside hitter Brooke Mattice knocking in some powerful spikes to try and rattle the Wildcats. However, poor serves and sloppy defense killed any attempts to mount a comeback, and they fell flat after too many miscues.

In a night where too many mistakes crippled the Nanooks, Wildcats dominated and churned out a whole team performance. What really helped the Wildcats was their versatility in front of the net. With Fry being 5’11’’ she could go from setting up plays to helping out blocks with middle backer Julie Hulbert and middle backer Kaitlin Quirk. Many of their players could also rotate, which helped keep the pressure on the Nanooks who couldn’t seem to fight past the stout defense and fiery offense.

The Nanooks will face off against Saint Martin’s (4-20) in Washington.
