Coupeville begins defense of conference crown / Volleyball

Taking step one toward defending its Olympic League title, the Coupeville High School volleyball team clubbed host Chimacum 3-0 Tuesday, Sept. 12.

The Cowboys (0-1, 0-2) offered little resistance as Coupeville won 25-9, 25-11, 25-4.

“(I’m) very happy with our consistent play today, playing our speed and (getting) back to aggressive serving and attacking,” coach Cory Whitmore said.

Whitmore added that his setters “did a great job of distributing the ball” with help from the passers who “provided great first-ball contacts.”

Setters Lauren Rose and Ashley Menges finished with 11 and six assists, respectively.

Katrina McGranahan pounded six kills and Payton Aparicio added four to lead the attack.

The Wolves bombarded the Cowboys from the service line.

Maya Toomey-Stout fired five aces, and Aparicio, McGranahan and Rose all recorded four.

The Wolves (1-0, 2-0) go to Yakima this Friday and Saturday, Sept. 15 and 16, for the Sundome Festival.

Coupeville’s first home match is 6:15 p.m. Tuesday, Sept. 26, with Klahowya.
