Clackamas travels to Bellevue,
Wash, this week to compete in the
1997 NWAACC tournament in
hopes of claiming their second
straight title.
Among the coaches, players and
fans attending the tournament,
many college scouts will be on
hand for the three-day-long event.
Sophomores Mattye Walsworth
Felando, per­
haps two of the
top college vol­
leyball players
in Oregon will
be the focus of
many of these
Walsworth, Clackamas' defen­
sive specialist, puts up big num­
bers every night in the digs cat­
egory but has become a definite
offensive threat this season with
high kill numbers.
According to Head Coach
Kathie Woods, Southern Oregon
State University has shown inter­
est in the 5'7" captain.
the Cougars'
top setter for
the past two
seasons, is a
true leader both
on the court
and off and
turns in big time assist numbers.
Western Oregon University is
perhaps Felando's top choice but
they have many setters on the
squad already.
Felando was named to All­
League First Team while
Walsworth was gi ven second team

Clackamas is the best volleyball
team in the northwest.
The Cougars have been in first
place all year. The team has been
ranked number one in each of this
year’s Horizon Air Coaches’ Polls.
Its last loss was on October 11,
1995. That’s right, 1995.
Last Wednesday, Head Coach
Kathie Woods’ team traveled to
Salem to play second-ranked
Chemeketa in its final regular sea­
son game of the year.
Clackamas lost 7-15, 8-15, 14-
The Cougars finished the regu­
lar season with an 11-1 league
record, 38-9 overall.
Now, it’s time for the big show.
On Friday, November 7, Clacka­
mas clinched the Southern Divi­
sion title with a commanding win
over fourth-ranked Mt. Hood in the
Saints’ gym 15-11, 15-10, 7-15,
The victory marked the 28th
consecutive league win for the
Cougars, a mark which now stands
as a Northwest Athletic Associa­
tion of Community Colleges
[NWAACC] record.
Four players recorded kill num­
bers in double figures with Christy
Ekberg making 18 kills, Amy
Kraljev with 15, Michelle
McKinney with 13 and Mattye
Walsworth adding 10 kills.
Walsworth, one of three sopho­
more team captains, continued her
defensive prowess recording 39
digs as well. Amy Felando, an­
other of this year’s tri-captains,
had 54 assists.
With the win over Mt. Hood,
Clackamas earned the top seed
from the south giving them a first
round bye in this week’s NWAACC
Championship Tournament in
Bellevue, WA.
“It was disappointing losing to
Chemeketa,” said Coach Woods.
“But we need to look at the total
picture. We are the Southern Divi­
sion champs. The total picture
says that we lost a league game to
#2 ranked Chemeketa. Out of 27
teams, if we had to lose a league
game it would be to Chemeketa.
It’s not that we lost that is disap­
pointing. It’s the fact that we
didn’t play well in doing so. This
isn’t going to devastate or destroy
us. We have our sights set on
With the first round bye, the
Cougars’ first game isn’t until 9
a.m. on Friday while most other
teams must play at least one game
“We’ll either play Everett,
Shoreline or Clark College,” said
Woods. “Now, we’re not going to
overlook anybody but those teams
don’t come from a particularly
strong region so we’re sitting
pretty good right now.
“I know the sophomores will
step up as real leaders in the tour­
nament,” added Woods. “They’ve
been here before and they’ve won
it before but the freshmen have to
show me that they’ll support them.
I expect them all to pick it up a
notch. As the season gets long,
people get tired and frustrated with
each other Lately we’ve been lack­
ing dedication and discipline so we
just need to refocus. The team just
needs to come together.”
Last week, Amy Felando and
Amy Kraljev were given First-
Team All-League honors while
Mattye Walsworth was named to
the second team. Christy Ekberg
and Michelle McKinney were
given Honorable Mention.
Walsworth and Felando will par­
ticipate in this year’s sophomore
all-star game held in Walla Walla,
Dec. 5-6.
After the Cougars’ early morn­
ing game, they play next at 5:30
against an opponent to be deter­
mined. Coach Woods, however,
isn’t planning on returning home
until after Saturday’s 7 p.m.
championship match. And a little
celebrating, of course.
“We’ve had a setback,” said
Woods, “but all championship
teams rebound from those set­
