Coupeville's volleyball team, plagued by inconsistent play of late, got a much needed 3-0 win over host Cedarcrest Wednesday.
The Wolves rolled 25-16, 25-11, 25-7.
Coach Toni Crebbin said, "The girls' played a very solid match. We didn't let up on them."
One of the highlights was a 97 percent serving percentage, an improvement over the 82 percent the Wolves posted in losing to Lakewood Monday.
Crebbin said, "There were a lot of errors on the other side." Therefore, Coupeville did not have to generate much offense. Setter Julie Swankie had just 10 assists and the Wolves needed only 15 kills for the match.
Jessica Riddle and Jessica Blanchette each had five kills, and Michelle Riddle had three aces. Jessica Riddle led the defense with 12 digs.
Coupeville is now 7-6 in conference play, 8-6 overall. It can wrap up third place in the Cascade Conference with a win in the final regular season match at South Whidbey Tuesday.Contact Whidbey News Times Sports editor Jim Waller at email@example.com or 360-675-6611 ext. 5060.
