Wolves stop Sultan, head to district / Volleyball

The Coupeville High School volleyball team heads into the postseason on a winning note as the Wolves shutout host Sultan 3-0 Monday, Oct. 28, in the regular-season finale.

With the 25-20, 25-17, 25-18 win, Coupeville upped its final, second-place North Sound Conference record to 8-2 and overall mark to 13-2.

Now it’s off to the district tournament. The Wolves, the No. 2 seed from the North Sound Conference, play the yet-to-be-determined No. 3 team from the Northwest Conference at the home of the No. 1-seeded team, also yet to be determined but most likely Lynden Christian, at 1 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 2.

Win or lose, the Wolves will play again at 2:30 p.m. Saturday.

From there, the surviving teams meet in Coupeville Tuesday, Nov. 5, to determine the first- through sixth-place teams. The first five advance to the bi-district tournament.

The win over Sultan (2-8, 6-10) was a “good to finish our regular season,” coach Cory Whitmore said. “We struggled to find our rhythm in the first set but through a late-set serving run by Lucy Sandahl and a strong connection between Scout Smith and Maya Toomey-Stout, we were able to close out the first.

“We took better care of the serve and first-ball contact in the second and third, which allowed us to control the tempo the majority of the time until the match closed.”

Highlights: Smith, 27 assists; Toomey-Stout, 16 kills, six digs, two aces; Hannah Davidson, five kills; Maddie Vandrak, six kills; Zoe Trujillo, five kills, seven digs; Sandahl, five aces.
