PORT TOWNSEND — After going winless in more than two years, the Port Townsend volleyball team is on a roll after winning its second match of the past week.

The Redskins opened Olympic League play by burying Bremerton 3-0 by the lopsided scores of 25-14, 25-17, 25-14.

Port Townsend now is 1-0 in league and 2-6 overall.

“I can’t express how proud of this team I am,” Port Townsend coach Nettie Hawkins said.

“After [Tuesday night’s] game, I’m grinning from ear to ear. The girls were all on the same page, were jelled together and really pulled through for another win.

“It is so rewarding to see this after they have worked so hard. We started off league play just the way we wanted to.”

Abby McGuire led the way with eight assists and seven digs while Trish Reeves had three kills, two blocks and two aces.

Enani Rubio, meanwhile, helped out with three kills and three aces while Megan Lee ended up with nine digs, two aces and 100 percent serving.

Other highlights went to Avery Selisch with two kills and two aces while Codi Hallinan had three aces and 100 percent serving.
