Wolves shut down Port Townsend / Volleyball

The Coupeville High School volleyball team finished the first round of Olympic League play with another 3-0 win, this time at Port Townsend Thursday, Sept. 28.

The Wolves beat the Redhawks 25-17, 25-16, 25-10.

“I was very pleased with our hitting efficiency today and execution of a clean game plan,” coach Cory Whitmore said. “We pushed ourselves on the service line and at times it paid off and others we let some serves get away from us.

“But we commanded the passing line and dug the ball really calmly and accurately, allowing our setters to deliver a great ball to an array of hitters. I thought we played with focus and, at times, big energy.”

Setters Lauren Rose (21 assists) and Ashley Menges (six assists) helped Kyla Briscoe (nine kills), Mikayla Elfrank (six kills) and Katrina McGranahan (five kills) lead the hitting attack.

The offense was aided by 13 aces, topped by Hope Lodell with four and Rose with three.

Defensively, Payton Aparicio recorded 14 digs and Lodell 12.

Coupeville (3-0, 4-2) hosts Chimacum (1-2, 1-4) at 6:15 p.m. Tuesday, Oct. 3.
