Getchell takes ‘Cats on wild ride / Volleyball

The Oak Harbor High School volleyball team took a ride on the emotional roller coaster Monday, Oct. 30.

There were highs: The Wildcats celebrated Senior Night and sophomore Payton Parks was surprised by the unexpected return from deployment of her father, who kept the secret by donning the Wildcat mascot costume.

There were lows: Last-place Marysville Getchell with an uninspiring 1-11 record nearly knocked off the 11-2 Wildcats by winning two games and forcing a fifth set.

And another high: Oak Harbor escaped with a 3-2 (17-25, 25-20

25-16, 22-25, 15-6) win to remain in second place in the Western Conference.

Jasmine Ford put up a whopping eight blocks for the Wildcats and Morgan Pease swatted 18 kills. Ford added eight kills and Pease 10 digs.

Other Oak Harbor highlights: Leielle Salinger 11 kills, eight digs; Gredina DeGuzman, 19 digs, two aces; Annie Salinger, 41 assists, 10 digs, four aces; Jaslin Webster, 14 digs; and Bailey Roggen, four kills.

Oak Harbor (12-2) closes out the regular season at Shorewood (2-9, 2-10) at 7 p.m. Tuesday, Nov. 5.
