PREP ROUNDUP: Sequim volleyball outlasts Port Angeles

SEQUIM — The Wolves volleyball team beat a much-improved Port Angeles squad 3-1 in the girls’ third match in three days.

Sequim won (25-20, 25-14, 24-26, 25-22). The win gives the Wolves a record of 4-1, while it was the first loss of the year for the Roughriders (2-1). Both Sequim and Port Angeles played a visiting North Kitsap team Saturday, giving the Wolves four matches in four days. Teams have been playing five-game matches all season to make up for the shortened season, but after a difficult 181-point Port Angeles match and the North Kitsap match looming, the tired Sequim girls held off on the fifth game, said coach Jennie Webber Heilman.

“It was back and forth quite a bit,” she said.

Leading the way for the Wolves were Kalli Wiker, Amanda Weller and Kendall Hastings. Wiker, a setter, had 29 assists and 13 digs, Hastings had 17 kills and four blocks, and Weller served a perfect 31-for-31 with six aces. Webber Heilman said Weller had several good runs while serving, including an eight-point run in Game 2 that helped give the Wolves an advantage.

“She was serving tough all night. It’s pretty amazing to go 31-for-31,” Webber Heilman said.

McKenna Hastings had 15 digs, Ali Gale served 20-for-21 and had 13 digs, while Jordan Hegtvedt had 16 digs. Freshman Jolene Vaara had nine kills, while Lindsay Swanson served 7-for-7 with 12 digs.

Port Angeles played North Kitsap Saturday afternoon so the Roughriders’ stats were not available. Sequim played the Vikings Saturday night.
