Coupeville, Oak Harbor get ready for regular season by playing in jamboree / Volleyball

The Coupeville and Oak Harbor high school volleyball teams participated in a jamboree in Oak Harbor Saturday, Sept. 7.

“(The) jamboree went well,” Oak Harbor coach Kerri Molitor said. “We won all of our games.

“I love the jamboree. It’s such a great way to get the butterflies out before we get busy with league. It’s nice to get the young players a little experience before we begin.

“I was really happy with how they all supported each other, and how they are coming together as a team.”

Coupeville coach Cory Whitmore said, “It went well for our first outing as a new team. I’m excited about the starting point and the direction we are headed.”

“We competed well,” he added. “We have plenty to work on, and much of it will be just continuing to become familiar with players in new roles/filling positions.

“I thought that we had very consistent serving throughout the day, and this is a big part of our identity.”

Oak Harbor opens the season at Meadowdale at 7 p.m. Thursday, Sept. 12. The first home match is 7 p.m. Tuesday, Sept. 17, with Cedarcrest.

Coupeville starts at Friday Harbor at 3:45 p.m. Thursday, Sept. 12.

Chimacum comes to Coupeville at 2:30 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 21, for the Wolves’ first home match.
