Lacking the teamwork that helped carry it to a win earlier in the week, the Oak Harbor High School volleyball team lost at Burlington-Edison 3-0 Thursday.
Coach Kerri Molitor said the Wildcats’ effort led to a “disconnected night,” and she saw “a lot of individuals getting very frustrated.” The result was an ugly loss to the Tigers, 25-16, 25-11, 25-14.
“We made a ton of errors and gave away a lot of points,” Molitor said. “Fortunately it was nonleague, a good learning experience. We were not mentally ready like we were Tuesday (a win over Cascade).”
The Wildcats, now 1-1 for the season, did not mount much offense in the contest. Senior Marisa Sutherland had four kills and junior Kelsey Terrazas-Cooley had three aces.
The highlight of the match, according to Molitor, was the play of freshman Roshel Muzzall. In her varsity debut she had two kills and block.
