Wolves pick up abbreviated win / Volleyball

The Coupeville High School volleyball team earned a win, sort of, at North Mason Thursday, Sept. 21.

The match was cut short after two sets, both narrow Coupeville wins, so the Wolves could catch the last ferry back to Whidbey Island.

Coupeville eked by 25-23, 26-24.

“We were not particularly consistent tonight in the two sets we did play,” coach Cory Whitmore said. “I think we, as a team, would have liked another set to end on a strong note. We pulled it together down the stretch of each set (for the wins).”

Whitmore was happy with his team’s passing, led by Hope Lodell (2.75 score) and Maya Toomey-Stout (2.6).

Stats: Mikayla Elfrank, five kills; Katrina McGranahan, four kills; Smith, three kills; Lauren Rose, nine assists, four digs; Ashley Menges, 11 assists; Lodell, 11 digs; Payton Aparicio, two aces.

After seven road trips, the Wolves (1-0, 3-1) finally play their first home match when Klahowya (2-0, 3-2) visits at 4 p.m. Tuesday, Sept.26.
