The Rangers victory came in three sets, 25-18, 25-17, 15-15.
Quilcene's senior captain Kiani Clissold was 20 for 21 serving on Monday and had seven aces, eight kills, four digs and one block.
Fellow captain Sammy Rae had three kills and one dig one dig, and sophomore Elysah Schryver was 10 for 13 serving with five aces and 1 block.
The Rangers also enjoyed big contributions from a trio of freshmen: Bailey Kieffer had seven kills; Allison Jones had one ace, one dig and 18 assists; and Katie Bailey served 10 for 13 and had four aces and five kills.
“Pre-league, we are really focusing on serving tough, with jump spike and jump float serves, which is lowering our serving percentage some, but definitely will pay off once we hit league,” Quilcene coach Joni Crowell said.
“We are down one of our starters and so a few of the girls have been playing different positions than they are used to, but they are adjusting and coming together as a team.
“The teamwork is especially important to me this year, and it [is] another point we are emphasizing.”
