Wildcats get back to winning ways / Volleyball

Bringing its record back to .500, the Oak Harbor High School volleyball team blanked visiting Marysville Getchell 3-0 Tuesday, Sept. 26.

The Wildcats evened their Western Conference record to 2-2 (3-3 overall) to stay in the hunt for a postseason berth.

Getchell fell to 0-4 (1-5). All six of Oak Harbor’s matches this year have ended with a 3-0 score.

Oak Harbor swept the Chargers 25-22, 25-15, 25-19.

The Wildcats were led by the strong all-around play of Cami Bristow, who collected seven kills, four aces and 13 digs.

Hailee Blau chipped in with 14 kills, Leielle Salinger fired five aces and Andrea Ruben finished with 29 assists.

Coach Kerri Molitor also singled out the effort of Samantha Hines, who rotated between middle and outside for the Wildcats.

“As a team we played with more communication and trust,” Molitor said. “Our passing was better, so (setter) Andi didn’t have to work quite so hard.”

Oak Harbor travels to Snohomish (2-1, 4-1) for a 7 p.m. match Monday, Oct. 2.
