November 21, 2013, Gresham, Oregon - Entering the 2013 NWAACC Tournament as the North #3 seed, Shoreline CC volleyball team (8-4 North, 21-15 overall) battled Clackamas (7-3 South, 31-12 overall) in the first round and while the Lady Dolphins managed to win the first set, the team was eventually defeated 1 set to 3 (18-25, 25-10, 25-17 and 25-9.)

The negative day result relegated Shoreline into the lower bracket against the Clark Penguins (7-7 West, 15-18 overall,) a seemingly favorable nighttime match up for Dolphins. However, Shoreline came up on the short end of the stick as Clark College squeaked by 2 sets to 1 (23-25, 25-23, 16-14) and ended Shoreline's 2013 campaign.

Despite the heartbreaking end to its season, coaches Mark and Raquel West have something to be proud of, specifically in the form of three NWAACC All-Stars, all former WesCo members representing the Shoreline program. Voted into the First Team is sophomore outside hitter Emily Denham (#5, Meadowdale HS) and as Second Team, sophomore outside hitter Arianna Garcia (#3, Lynnwood HS) and freshman outside hitter Monica Postor (#6, Shorewood HS.)
