Oak Harbor barely avoids upset / Volleyball

Whew, that was close.

Stanwood put a scare into the first-place Oak Harbor High School volleyball team before the Wildcats escaped with a 3-2 win Thursday, Oct. 10, at Stanwood.

The Wildcats (8-0) are now one of only two Wesco teams still unbeaten. Arlington (8-0) defeated Snohomish 3-0 Thursday in a battle of undefeated teams to remain in a tie for first place with the Wildcats. The Panthers (7-1) dropped to third.

Stanwood entered its match with Oak Harbor with an unassuming 4-4 record and then stunned the Wildcats 25-14 in the first game.

That woke up the Wildcats, who rolled to 25-12, 25-9 wins in the next two sets and seemed in control.

The Spartans, however, rallied to squeak out a 28-26 win in the fourth set.

The final game also went “overtime” as Oak Harbor pulled out an 18-16 nail-biter.

Morgan Pease collected 17 kills, 11 digs, three aces and a block for Oak Harbor.

Leielle Salinger registered 18 kills, 10 digs and two blocks, while Jasmine Ford added nine kills and three blocks.

Jaslin Webster fired four aces and had 10 digs, and Gredina DeGuzman had 19 digs and an ace.

Annie Salinger guided the offense with 43 assists and added three aces and 11 digs.

Oak Harbor plays in the Bearcat Invitational at 8 a.m. Saturday, Oct. 12, in Monroe.
