Hawks coach Angie Potts described Zillah as "tenacious."

"We knew going in that Zillah would be tough," Potts said. "They're well-coached and aggressive on defense."

College Place (2-1 record) looks to bounce back Wednesday in showdown at McLoughlin High School.

The Hawks finished Tuesday's mathc with Jenna Hill making 18 assists, Maeve Thompson tallying seven kills and four blocks, Mya Adams notching three kills and Hollie Christensen on 25 digs.

"Unfortunately, in the last set, we let the momentum slip away."
