Volleyball: Lake Stevens blanks 'Cats in home opener

After a promising start to the season, the Oak Harbor High School volleyball team was tripped up 3-0 in its home opener by Lake Stevens Thursday, Sept. 16.

The Wildcats won their first two matches and put in a strong showing at the SunDome Festival in Yakima last weekend, but the Vikings (3-0) prevailed 25-23, 25-14, 25-20.

Oak Harbor jumped to a 14-9 lead in the first game, but from that point Lake Stevens controlled the match. The ‘Cats led just once (8-7 in the third set) in the final two games.

Coach Kerri Molitor said, “I’m not sure what the problem was; we became hesitant.”

Kelsey Terrazas-Cooley led the defense with 15 digs and Janine DeGuzman added 12.

Jordan Faralan had 16 assists; no Wildcat had more than four kills.

Oak Harbor (2-1) hosts Arlington (1-2) Tuesday, Sept. 21, at 7 p.m.
