PORT ANGELES — Wings Up of Sequim fought off a serious challenge by Elwha Food and Fuel to capture the Peninsula Volleyball League’s B Division championship last week at the Peninsula College gym.
The Elwha club had to beat Wings Up twice to win the double-elimination postseason tournament and they opened the night winning the first match in straight sets, 25-21, 25-23. That forced a second and final best-of-three match and this time the regular season champions held off Elwha Food & Fuel, winning 25-17, 25-23 to claim the title.
The team is made up of Brittney Gale, Tayler Breckenridge, Dena Breckenridge, Jared Fodge, Ben Cowan and Cody Cowan.
The PVL A Division continues with two more weeks of regular season play, followed by playoffs on Feb. 16.
Discovery Bay open
PORT ANGELES — Effective immediately, the Washington Department of Health updated harvest closures. In Clallam County, Discovery Bay is open beginning Monday for recreational harvest of all species of shellfish.
The following beaches in Clallam County are listed with the closure in effect:
• Sequim Bay remains closed to butter and varnish clams.
• East Strait of Juan de Fuca, from Lyre River/Low Point to the Jefferson County line, including Dungeness Bay is open to all species.
• West Strait of Juan de Fuca from Cape Flattery to Lyre River/Low Point is open to all species.
• Ongoing seasonal closure of ocean beaches. Ocean beaches closed to all species.
Closed to all species means clams (including geoduck), oysters, mussels and other invertebrates such as the moon snail. All areas are closed for the sport harvest of scallops. These closures do not apply to shrimp. Crabmeat is not known to contain biotoxins, but the guts can contain unsafe levels.
To be safe, clean crab thoroughly and discard the guts (butter).
For more information about this closure, call the Marine Biotoxin Hotline at 1-800-562-5632, or visit the Department of Health’s Marine Biotoxin website at www.doh.wa.gov/shellfishsafety.htm.
