Coupeville roughs up ’Riders / Volleyball

Port Angeles is still winless after the visiting Coupeville High School volleyball team blanked the Roughriders 3-0 Thursday, Oct. 5.

The Wolves won the non-league match 25-16, 25-22, 25-21 to raise their record to 7-1; Port Angeles dropped to 0-10.

“Glad to get the win on the road,” coach Cory Whitmore said. “I was happy to see our passing come back strong.”

Whitmore noted that his club made some mistakes but “managed the serving with greater efficiency in fixing those mistakes and turning them into offense.”

Payton Aparicio led the serving attack with nine aces; Lauren Rose chipped in with five.

The Wolves’ hitting was “sporadic,” according to Whitmore, but the “outsides produced strong numbers on a mix of shots.”

Kyla Briscoe finished with 10 kills and Aparicio added seven.

Whitmore praised the play of middle Katrina McGranahan, who collected six kills while having a “great all-around game with her blocking, serving and hitting.”

Coupeville returns home for a non-league match with Sequim (5-4) at 5:15 p.m. Tuesday, Oct. 10.
