I always look forward to playing West Seattle, it’s a homecoming of sorts for me. Mainly because West Seattle’s coach, Joe Baleto is a cousin of mine, and much like my family, you can usually count on his family being at the games supporting their program! Friday was a good game for us against the Wildcats featuring the versatile all-league senior hitter Eastyn Baleto, who happens to be Megan Huff’s teammate on their “gold medal” winning club team.
We came out swinging in game 1 (25-17), as a team hitting 0.412 collecting 9 kills with only 2 errors! Game 2 (26-24) was very competitive and could have gone either way. We found our offensive groove again in game 3 (25-16), hitting 0.364, with 15 kills and only 3 errors! An overall good win for us. Beamer is now 6-1 in non-league matches, but 0-3 in the SPSL South.
