Wolves win one at state

The Coupeville volleyball team came short of placing at the state tournament last weekend, but didn’t come away empty handed.

After losing a tough first-round matchup with Columbia-Burbank, 14-25, 25-8, 25-8, 25-14, the Wolves bounced back in their next match Friday.

Competing against Toutle Lake, Coupeville rallied together for a hard-fought effort in the first round of the consolation bracket, taking a 26-24, 25-21,18-25, 12-25, 15-12 victory.

“That was a great win for us because they knocked us out of day two last year,” head coach Toni Crebbin said.

The win ensured Coupeville would play on Saturday at the Yakima Sundome.

In the consolation semifinals, the Wolves dropped three out of four games to Bellevue Christian, 25-16, 25-16, 19-25, 25-20, ending their hopes of placing at state.

“I thought we ended on a positive note, even though we lost to BCS,” Crebbin said. “They were all thrilled to be there.”

Senior Vanessa Davis led the Wolves with 44 kills in the three tournament games, while junior Mindy Horr had 50 assists.

Coupeville ended the season the second place team in the Northwest A behind La Conner with an 8-2 league record. This was the third consecutive appearance at the state tournament for the Wolves, who finished the year 15-7 overall.
