Volleyball: Wolves lose close battle with Cedarcrest

The Cedarcrest volleyball team eked out a 3-2 win over visiting Coupeville Thursday, Oct. 7.

The two teams battled through four tense games before the Red Wolves pulled out the victory by taking the final set 15-10.

Coupeville dropped the first game 23-25, then won the next two 25-22, 25-23, before Cedarcrest grabbed game four 25-23.

The Wolves let Cedarcrest (3-6) back into some games after taking early leads. Coach Toni Crebbin said, “We didn’t necessarily close the door when we needed to.” However, she said the Red Wolves had the same problem as Coupeville battled back from deficits as well.

However, in the final game, Crebbin said, “We let them jump out early and didn’t have time to come back; it’s hard when the game is to only 15.”

She added, “It was a fun game, we just didn’t win.”

Jessica Riddle blasted 15 kills and four aces, and Kyra Ilyankoff added eight kills.

Laura Chan handed out 27 assists.

Chelsea Hudgins had an “outstanding game,” according to Crebbin, with 20 digs.

Coupeville (2-7, 3-7) now faces defending state champion King’s (8-0) at home Tuesday, Oct. 12, at 7 p.m
