Perfect ending to conference season for Wolves / Volleyball

9-0. 27-0. Can’t get much better than that.

The Coupeville High School volleyball team won 3-0 at Port Townsend Saturday, Oct. 28, in the regular-season finale.

With the win, the Wolves finished with a perfect 9-0 Olympic League record, not losing a set in any match — a string of 27 games.

The conference crown was the second consecutive for Coupeville, and now the Wolves head to District 3 play.

Coupeville will play the survivor of Port Townsend, Vashon Island and Bellevue Christian at 11 a.m. Saturday, Nov. 4, in the district opener and needs to win one of two matches to advance to the state tournament.

Coupeville 3, Port Townsend 0 (25-10, 25-10, 25-20)

“I was really happy with our focus and execution in the first two set, especially,” coach Cory Whitmore said. “Lauren and Ashley did a great job of distributing the offense and our passing was very strong, allowing us to utilize our middles.

“In set three we mixed things us a bit, getting everyone involved which took us a minute to settle into, but then when we did, our offense could take over.

‘I’m pleased with where we are and very proud of finishing league play strong. I’m so happy for these girls and their hard work paying off in spades. Now we push into playoffs and try to play a couple more weeks.”

Stat leaders: Karina McGranahan, eight kills; Mikayla Elfrank, six kills; Emma Smith, five kills; Hope Lodell, 12 digs; Kyla Briscoe, five kills; Rose, 5 aces; Payton Aparicio, five aces.
