Winning its second straight match after opening the season with three losses, the Coupeville High School volleyball team stopped host Sultan 3-1 Tuesday, Sept. 18.
The Wolves won 25-20, 25-21, 22-25, 25-20.
With the win came a loss. Bessie Walstad went down with an ankle injury during the third game, cutting short an outstanding performance. The senior captain had 22 digs and eight kills before leaving.
Coach Toni Crebbin said had Walstad not been injured she was "confident we would have won in three."
The Wolves recovered from the setback and pulled out the fourth game and the match.
Libero Amanda Fabrizi helped pick up the defensive slack with Walstad out and registered 19 digs. Megan Oakes dished 25 assists, helping Hailey Hammer earn 11 kills.
Crebbin said, "We had a lot of great hustle and really smart serving by Amanda, Haley Sherman and Bree Messner."
