Wildcats split the fun at Anacortes Tournament | Volleyball

For the Oak Harbor High School volleyball team, twice was nice at the Anacortes Invitational Tournament Saturday, Oct. 20.

Coach Kerri Molitor entered two teams in the tournament, one consisting of her seven seniors and the other with underclassmen.

Molitor said the seniors "played well" and moved to the upper bracket after pool play.

In pool play they split with Holy Names (26-24, 21-25) and Ferndale (25-22, 23-25) and defeated Mount Vernon Christian (24-18, 25-11).

After losing to Mountlake Terrace 16-25, 25-22, 10-15 in bracket play, the Wildcats defeated Mariner 25-14, 25-20.

The younger team got off to slow start, Molitor said, but rebounded to win the championship in the lower bracket.

In pool play they lost to Sehome (22-25, 13-25) and Mountlake Terrace (12-25, 11-25) and split with LaConner (25-22, 20-25).

In bracket play, the Wildcats dumped Mount Vernon Christian (25-9, 25-15) and then bounced LaConner in the title match (19-25, 25-12, 15-10).
