PORT ANGELES — The Port Angeles volleyball team lost a nonleague match to 4A South Kitsap 3-1, but the Riders played tough in the 171-point match.

“The girls played strong the first game and fought hard every set after that. There was a lot of overall improvement since last Thursday,” said head coach Christine Halberg.

South Kitsap won by the score of 25-15, 17-25, 25-20, 25-19.

Halberg also said Emma Olson played the backcourt well as the Riders’ libero.

“Defensively we played stronger as a team. The girls played scrappy. It was a lot of fun tonight because they played with their hearts and played as a team,” Halberg said.
