The Oak Harbor High School volleyball team came from behind for a critical 3-2 win at Lynnwood Wednesday, Oct. 12.
The Wildcats (6-2, 7-4) entered the night in a three-way fight for second in the Western Conference with the Royals (6-3, 7-3) and Glacier Peak (6-2, 7-4).
Oak Harbor goes to Marysville Getchell (1-6, 1-8) Tuesday and then hosts Glacier Peak Thursday, Oct. 20, at 7 p.m.
The higher seed between Oak Harbor and Glacier Peak is guaranteed a home match in the opening round of the district tournament.
After Oak Harbor topped Lynnwood 25-21 in game one, the Royals rebounded to take the next two 25-19, 25-22.
The Wildcats wrestled away the momentum with a 9-1 start in game four en route to a 25-19 win. They won game five 15-9.
Coach Kerri Molitor said, "It was a tough one. Batting back after the second and third set losses wasn't the way I would like to have had it. Great team effort."
